Bollywood Actor Vijay Varma has scaled great heights with sheer hard work. The actor has carved a niche for himself in the film industry and he has made a mark with his film choices. The actor has been associated with the most interesting projects namely - Gully Boy and Alia Bhatt's Darlings which starred him as her abusive and alcoholic husband.
Varma’s casting in Darlings didn’t really come as a shock to many owing to a shift in career from contemporary cinema to big commercial films.
Better late than never!
Well, his desire for the shift in his career isn’t particularly an immediate development. In fact, did you know Vijay Varma has lost out on some big movie roles in the past?
In a recent interaction, the actor reflected on some of the films he lost out, however, he even lost a film to late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Yes, you read that right! It seems Vijay Varma’s fate had different plans for him.
The 36-year-old actor in a recent interview revealed that he auditioned for Kai Po Che, before it went to Sushant.
“Yeah, there were a lot of them. I was definitely in the running for ‘Kai Po Che’, the part that eventually went to Sushant (Singh Rajput). I auditioned and was considered briefly for ‘Milkha’ and there must have been others as well.”
“But you know, eventually the guys who played those parts probably fit the part, and that is what I completely agree with. When I look at those movies, I know why the casting happened and how incredible those actors have been. It hurt at that time but I have seen several actors who come up to me and say ‘I wanted to do that role, you were doing’ or that ‘We’d tested for your part and wanted to do it’. It's a cycle that we all have to get used to. I always say, ‘Yeah, I've been on the other side, bro’,” Vijay Varma was quoted as saying by ETimes.
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Vijay Varma will be next seen in Sujoy Ghosh’s Hindi adaptation of The Devotion Of Suspect X.
