Vijay Varma has proven one of Bollywood's top performers from time to time, especially after his latest, Darlings and now there is no doubting his star power as well. The actor, Hamza, who astounded us with his brilliant portrayal in a gruesome role as the alcoholic and violent husband, discusses how he prepared for the part.

In a recent interview, Vijay Varma discussed how he prepared for the role of an alcoholic by suggesting to his director Jasmeet K. Reen that he do three scenes with the assistants in their office while he actually gets drunk, and then the same sequences without drinking. He told Jasmeet, "I wanted to do this exercise with you so that you can see what difference I have when I am under the influence of alcohol".

Later on, when Vijay reached out to Jasmeet to know how the exercise worked, she said "You please stay away from alcohol, because you are not at all Hamza when you are drunk" to which the actor said, "Because there was a constant grin on my face", as he could not stop smiling in the entire tape, while drunk, even in the angry scenes. 

He adds, "I can never be angry and violent when I am drunk, I can never be angry and violent, per say. That bone doesn't exist much in me, I can be angry but not in a very poisonous volcanic way," concluding how the exercise of really bring drunk to play one, was a failure for them both.

With Darlings now released on an OTT platform, Vijay also has an exciting slate of projects ahead including, Devotion of Suspect X with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Dahaad with Sonakshi Sinha, Mirzapur 3 and Sumit Saxena's untitled next.
