MUMBAI: One of the most popular actresses in B-town, Alia Bhatt is currently making headlines for the film Gangubai Kathiawadi. The film has been receiving rave reviews since its release. Another actor to make headlines for his performance in the film is Varun Kapoor. He made his Bollywood debut with this Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial.
Varun Kapoor is known for his work in television shows. He is already a popular face on small screen. With this film, he stepped into Bollywood.
The actor played the role of Sanskar Maheshwari in Swaragini. After his show Savitri Devi, he went missing from TV for four long years. The actor took out time to hone his craft and the effort paid when he bagged a Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie as his first project. Staying away from TV for four long years can be daunting and Varun Kapoor admits that he had spells of anxiety and insecurity. During an interview with BollywoodLife, he spoke about how working on a Sanjay Leela Bhansali set is like an emotion in itself. "Yes, as an actor there is immense anxiety and insecurity but without that, there is no pushing the boundaries, no new learning or new rewards. Insecurity as an actor helps you go forward, really focus and learn." Varun Kapoor gave an audition in front of Sanjay Leela Bhansali who wanted to verify if he had cracked it on his own, and not without assistance.
The actor is still remembered for his portrayal of Sanskar Maheshwari. Tejasswi Prakash had cheered for him when she saw the announcement of the movie. "I do not think that she has that kind of time to watch the movie right now. But I will definitely send her a message and ask her for feedback. I will be very interested to know what she thinks and would like a comment from her,” said the actor.
