Vijay Varma is one of the most promising actors of Hindi entertainment industry at the moment and he has proved it once with his latest performance in film 'Darlings'. Sharing screen with Alia Bhatt, Vijay portrayed the role of a drunkard and abusive husband in this project and in a recent media interaction, he talked about what is it like to portray dark and troubled characters.

He told IANS, “Playing grey or negative characters doesn’t come naturally to me. For ‘Darlings’, I spent a lot of time in agony. There were three women on set and we were as a team cooking up ways to kind of deal with a certain relationship between Badru and Hamza."

He further added, “Having said that, playing a negative character does bring along the opportunity for an actor to tap into a certain kind of personality types that probably exist a lot in the society that we live in. I feel if a few households resonate with the kind of work we have done in ‘Darlings’ then it’s a job well done."

Vijay then went on to talk about the positive effect of OTT revolution on his career. He stated, “I never had to face the pressure of the opening day figures though I have been part of films where good opening mattered and they went on to collect good money but it was never in an effect that it would bother me or my job.”
