Varun Jain, a Hoshiarpur lad, had never dreamed of taking up acting even though he currently stars as Mohit on the popular Star Plus soap ‘Diya aur baati hum’ and will soon be making his debut in Pollywood.


"After completing my schooling from St Josephs' School, and DAV school Hoshiarpur, I went to Mumbai in 2005 to do a course in diamond manufacturing but as luck would have it, one of my friends showed my pictures to an agent through whom I started getting contracts for TV commercials", said Varun, who was also seen with Priyanka Chopra in a commercial for a popular chocolate.

Talking about Diya aur Baati hum he says, "Its popularity is increasing. We have completed 700 episodes and many more are yet to come".

As for him venturing into the Punjabi cinema fraternity he has started watching old Punjabi movies as preparation, “One day you may also see me in Hindi movies" he gushes, adding further, "My entire family including my grandparents, never misses a single episode of my serial.”

This coming on the heels of the fact that his parents were never supportive of his acting to start with but are now proud of Varun’s achievments.
