Speaking with Bollywood Hungama, Varun reacted to a question on the atmosphere on sets while working with Anil and Shah Rukh, "Very different. Very different. He (Anil Kapoor) is too entertaining and so much energy. SRK is so charming, so courteous and so everything. He is just amazing. Shah Rukh sir is just amazing. Both are amazing. Anil sir is a brilliant actor but they are poles apart."

In JugJugg Jeeyo, Varun essays the role of Anil's son. The Hindustan Times review read, "Right from the first scene till the climax, the film maintains a pace that keeps you engaged in Saini family's good and bad times and doesn't serve too many dull moments. Anurag Singh's story and Rishabh Sharma's dialogues effectively blend to create situations that make you laugh, cry, relate with the characters and all this with a lot of naach gaana. Even in the most emotional scene, you see flashes of humour that doesn't look misplaced or force-fit, that's what I liked the most about the film."

The film, that released on Friday, saw huge growth on Saturday at the box office. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, sharing the day two collections of the film, wrote on Twitter, "#JugJuggJeeyo gets a solid 35.24% push on Day 2... #Delhi, #NCR, #Gujarat lead, followed by #Mumbai, #Pune, #Chandigarh, #Bengaluru... Mass circuits improve, should grow on Day 3... Eyes 37 cr [+/-] weekend total... Fri 9.28 cr, Sat 12.55 cr. Total: 21.83 cr. India biz."

Helmed by Raj Mehta, JugJugg Jeeyo also features Kiara Advani, Neetu Kapoor, Maniesh Paul and YouTuber Prajakta Koli. Varun Sood has a cameo appearance in the film. Jugjugg Jeeyo is produced by Viacom18 Studios and Hiroo Yash Johar, Karan Johar, and Apoorva Mehta under Dharma Productions.
