Actor Varun Dhawan is all set for the discharge of his upcoming movie JugJugg Jeeyo with Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor. In a current interview, the Student of the Year actor, who can be the son of filmmaker David Dhawan, stated that he approached the director for the movie and requested him to solid him in it.

Talking to IndiaToday.in, the actor stated, “We were stuck in a pandemic we didn’t know whether to start a film or not start a film. For this film the script was ready and I have known Raj (Mehta) since he had assisted on Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, so I knew him pretty well that way. I have a friend who is very close to Raj and he told me about this (JugJugg Jeeyo) script and asked me to speak with him. But, I got to know that Raj was hesitant to talk to me about this film, he wasn’t sure if I would be keen on doing it. So then I just called Raj and gave him two-three bad words and told him, ‘Are you mad?’ If you have something good please come to me. He made Good News’ but never came to me, he said I was too young for that. So eventually, I went to Raj and took the script and gave him no other option.”

Talking about his co-star, Varun added that he was dying to work with Kiara Advani. “We did one song and it did so well. So I just wanted to work with her as an actor and felt that our jodi or pair didn’t get the limelight it needed or the platform. So this was perfect for both of us,” he informed the publication.

Jugjugg Jeeyo stars Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani within the lead with Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor taking part in pivotal roles. The movie can be Neetu Kapoor’s comeback film. The movie is helmed by Raj Mehta. It will launch on June 24.
