On JugJugg Jeeyo, directed by Raj Mehta, Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani worked together for the first time. Family dynamics and stressful situations are addressed in the movie. Prior to filming a fight scene, Kiara and Varun quarrelled two or three times, according to Varun. Raj had to intervene since their altercation was so intense.
Recalling an intense fight scene from the film, Varun told Pinkvilla, “I and Kiara got into 2-3 fights before we shot the scene genuinely. Because we were discussing the scene and she was like ‘I will say this.’ And I was like ‘but that’s not my point of view.’ As a man that’s not my point of view. I have to earn for my family because that’s what I have been taught. She’s like ‘no you are chauvinistic’ How’s that chauvinistic? Your brother and father think the same way. Then why I am chauvinistic if I feel I need to earn for my family. That’s what I am taught by my parents in childhood.”
In a recent interview, the Badlapur actor talked about the trends at the box office.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Varun said, "Nobody knows s***, Let’s just say it today on camera, nobody knows s***, nobody knows anything. Let’s be honest, I don’t think the trade knows anything. I don’t know that even the most successful producers know or directors, there’s nothing. Nobody knows anything."
