The much-anticipated family comedy-drama, Jugjugg Jeeyo, premiered on June 24. Ahead of the release, Varun Dhawan was in New Delhi with his co-stars Neetu Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Kiara Advani and Maniesh Paul to promote the film. During an exclusive interaction with IndiaToday.in, Varun talked about his close friends Arjun Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra’s wedding. While Arjun is currently in a relationship with Malaika Arora, Sidharth is rumoured to be dating Kiara Advani.
WHAT DID VARUN SAY ABOUT ARJUN AND SIDHARTH’S WEDDING?
Besides films, Arjun Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra have been the talk of the town due to their dating lives. During an exclusive interview with IndiaToday.in, Varun Dhawan opened up about his friends Arjun Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra’s nuptials. When Varun was asked about who between Arjun and Sidharth will get the JugJugg Jeeyo blessings first, he replied ”I think dono hi bahut hi ache ladke hain, bahut hi committed, honest aur ache vyavahar ke ladke hain. Toh main dono ko hi kahunga but both are ready I can say that (I think both are good, committed and honest guys. So, I will say both are ready, I can say that).”
Kiara Advani, who is said to be dating Sidharth, was quick to add, “Varun seems to know it all.” Neetu Kapoor, who is also starring in Jugjugg Jeeyo, too joined the conversation and asked Varun “Who is more ready to get married first – Arjun or Sidharth?”
While Varun tried to dodge the question, towards the end, he praised Sidharth in front of Kiara. “Mereko idhar se bhi maar pitni hain, udhar se bhi maar parni hain. (I will get beaten from this side and that side too.) I don’t know whether I should say it or not but I started my career with Sid and I feel he is a very mature person.. and I think he will be a very good husband so yeah.”
ARJUN OR SIDHARTH DATING LIVES
Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora have been dating each other for quite some time now. They are often vocal about their admiration for each other. Arjun has gone on to say how Malaika brings stability in his life, while Malaika has shared how he has been a rock. Malaika is 48 and Arjun is 36 currently. Malaika was previously married to Arbaaz Khan for over a decade. They continue to share a cordial relationship and co-parent their son, Arhaan.
On the other hand, Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani starred together in Shershaah and their romantic appearances during the promotions were enough to leave their fans gushing. They have not confirmed being in a relationship together but they are often spotted sharing sweet moments with each other.
JUGJUGG JEEYO REVIEW
India Today’s reviewer Tushar Joshi gave 3.5 stars to JugJugg Jeeyo. In his review, he wrote, “JugJugg Jeeyo’s biggest strength lies in the fact that it is able to showcase the strength of its entire star cast in the best way possible.” He also found the film, “A bit too long that has nothing new to offer when it comes to showcasing the fun side of a Punjabi wedding. Some of the scenes are shot in such a way that they could make their way into an Ekta Kapoor daily soap. The film has loud background music and dialogue that cross the normal decibel levels.”
Directed by Raj Mehta, JugJugg Jeeyo released in theatres on June 24. The film stars Varun Dhawan, Anil Kapoor, Kiara Advani and Neetu Kapoor.
