Bollywood actor Vijay Varma, who has won the hearts once again with his powerful performance as a drunkard and a wife-beater in 'Darlings', has shared his mother's reaction.
The actor took on a dark role of an alcoholic, abusive husband 'Hamza' to 'Badrunissa' (played by Alia Bhatt). He opened up on his mother's reaction to the film.
Just like any other mother, Vijay's mother is now worried that no one would marry her son.
Vijay Varma shares, "I am getting all kinds of reactions after the release of 'Darlings'; some are saying we hate Hamza, some are praising my performing skills but the funniest has been my mom. She watched the film and called me in panic."
"She was worried that no one would marry her son now. I get where she was coming from but I had such a good laugh after hearing her reaction. I had to calm her down and assure her that this won't happen. Secretly, I am also hoping it doesn't."
The actor, who comes from humble roots, was born and brought up in Hyderabad. He later went to Pune's famous school FTII to study acting without the support of his parents.
With 'Darlings' now released on an OTT platform, the actor has an interesting lineup of films ahead including 'Devotion of Suspect X' with Kareena Kapoor Khan, 'Dahaad' with Sonakshi Sinha, 'Mirzapur 3' and Sumit Saxena's untitled next.
