Actor Varun Sharma, who shot to fame with the role of the hilarious Choocha in the film Fukrey (2013), reveals that he had an inkling about the budding romance between his co-stars, Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal. “We are all fukra guys! Iss fukrapanti mein hum sabse pyaar se hi baat karte hain, pata hi nahi chala! (We all used to talk to each other with love, so we didn’t realise initially!)” But soon, the sparks were more than visible to everyone on the sets. “Of course, we had come to know a little about it, but once it became public, tab toh we were like ‘Nice hai! We all can celebrate together whenever we go out, because now we have got nothing to hide’ ”, laughs Varun, who will star with the couple in the sequel to Fukrey. which releases in December.
But as it happens on social idea, once the good news was finally confirmed by the couple, trolls targeted them, calling it a case of love jihad. While Richa called it humorous, and said, ‘We are not Obamas’, Varun says he was quite disheartened. “Arre yaar! I think ki love, or for that matter any other relationship, it just happens. Connection ho jaata hai. When that bonding happens and the intellectual level between two individuals matches, that becomes a relationship. Be it friends, muh-bole bhai behen, or any relation which is not by blood. We should respect that. Any person who gives you happiness, motivation, uplifts your mood, you just need to be with that person!”, adds the 27-year old.
