Many actors such as the late Sushant Singh Rajput, Sidharth Shukla, Prachi Desai, Pulkit Samrat, Pankaj Kapoor are some of the names that made it even on the silver screen. A recent addition to the list is actor Varun Kapoor.
Kapoor is best known for his roles as Sanskaar Maheshwari on Colors TV ‘Swaragini – Jodein Rishton Ke Sur’ and Dr Veer Malhotra in ‘Savitri Devi College & Hospital’. The actor made his Bollywood debut with “Gangubai Kathiawadi” by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

The actor is in the cloud nine, driving high the success of “Gangubai Kathiawadi”, which has received a huge response and acceptance from critics. Kapoor tells us how he received the reactions of the fans.
He says, “It’s strange that people wanted to hate me but somehow they could not hate me so much. I received messages as if I wanted to hate you, but you are very cute. “Someone said well done; you were very good, we wanted to see you more, etc., etc.”
Kapoor, who made his television debut with “Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil”, has previously appeared in Bhansali-produced Star Plus drama “Saraswatichandra”. From being part of Bhansali’s TV show to being part of “Gangubai Kathiawadi”, it was a long journey for the actor.
Speaking about working with Bhansali, the actor says: “With SLB sir, no preparation is good enough. You never know what he will find on the set. You need to go completely with an open mind … to give in to his process and trust your instinct “.
Kapoor had previously spoken of his admiration for Bhansali’s work and how he was an ardent admirer of the director. He said it was a very different experience meeting Bhansali for the first time and the former was very nervous about it.
