Actor Vijay Varma on Saturday shared pictures of his latest splurge, a Jeep Compass. Taking to Instagram, he gave fans glimpses of his new car as he posed in front of it as well as took to the steering wheel. He was accompanied by actor Sunny Hinduja.
Vijay captioned the post, "After stealing, fixing, driving, and selling cars onscreen…It’s time I finally got my own. Say hello to my new Love Interest Note- Masks were removed just for pics and We smell like hand sanitiser. Photos and moral support by @hindujasunny." One of the pictures was a meme about how he no longer needs to avail cab services and featured actor Ali Fazal, "Me to Uber: bas yahin tak tha jo tha (our journey was till here)."+
Taking to the comments section, celebs as well as fans congratulated him and also praised his wit. Ali, who made an appearance in the post as a meme, wrote, "Hahahahahah ... congratsss." Sunny wrote, "Congratulations again Last pic is killer." Actor Jaideep Ahlawat said, "Vaaaahhhh Vaaahhhh Bade Babu ... Chalo drive pe (Wow, let's go on a drive)." Actor Pratik Gandhi said, "Congratulations buddy....have a happy and successful drive always..." Ishaan Khatter wrote, "Congrats bhai!!!"
A fan wrote, "Congratulations @itsvijayvarma you are truly inspiring." Another said, "Congratulations sir you have earned it." A third wrote, "Just the beginning @itsvijayvarma soon you will be having RR too."
The car is a Jeep Compass, priced at over ₹22 lakh, and is in the Grigio Magnesio Grey colour. It has Uconnect™ with a 25.6 cm (10.1-inch) touchscreen display and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (wireless). It features rain-sensing front wipers, dual-pane panoramic sunroof and a power liftgate, with a dual-tone steel grey and brown interior.
Vijay has been critically acclaimed for his performances in movies and shows such as Pink, Gully Boy, Mirzapur and A Suitable Boy.
Earlier in March, PTI had quoted him saying, "I want to keep putting myself in uncomfortable spots and in pursuit of newer performances. I want to have a long-lasting and impactful presence as an artist on the screen and keep surprising myself. I feel blessed to be finally at a place where I have a choice. But it's not easy because sometimes, when you have two or three decent options, then it gets a little difficult to make the choice. Also, sometimes personal equations come into the picture and people might not like my choices. So it comes with baggage, but I'm happy to carry it as long I get to do the stuff that I want to."
Vijay hails from Hyderabad and is a graduate of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII). He started his journey with the 2012 movie Chittagong which he followed up with films such as Rangrezz and Gang of Ghosts.
