I guess this feeling will never go away.. and it shouldn’t - because being nervous.. and feeling unsure means you really really care. P.S - wish me luck pls (I’ll need all of it to match up to my co-actors."
Darlings also stars Vijay Varma and Shefali Shah. Vijay also took to Instagram and shared a picture of himself from the sets of the film. He can be seen holding the movie's clapperboard as he gears up to shoot for the film.
