Mirzapur actor Vijay Varma is all set to be seen in the highly anticipated project, Darlings with actress Alia Bhatt, which will be directed by Jasmeet K Reen. The film will premiere on Netflix on August 5, 2022.

At the super grand and fun trailer launch, Varma shared how he was roped in for the project, and on working with Alia Bhatt in the film. Vijay Varma recalled that he broke out in a happy dance and did the moonwalk when he got the call for Darlings. Sharing his excitement, he told the media sources, "So when I read the script, I knew this script is absolutely fabulous, it's radical, it's whack, it's electric, it's filled with humour and so many things, but I was very scared to take this part (sic).”

"I took a couple of meetings with Jasmeet to understand, 'Will I be able to?' I need to bring in whole such things happened and then very gently and very nicely Jasmeet got hold of me and got me to do the film (sic)." He also shared how their director, Jasmeet accompanied him to meetings and finally got hold of the actor and convinced him to do the film.
