EXCLUSIVE: “There were people who were trying to put down the film from day one”- Varun Dhawan on Coolie No. 1

The year 2020 was not kind to the film industry which had to shut business for months. Apart from that there was a general resentment against the industry after it was muddled in various controversies. Talking about the negativity around the film and the industry, Varun said, “We knew we were fighting an uphill battle because there is negativity. No one can deny that conversation and there was a certain negativity we were fighting. There were people who were trying to put the film down from day one. But there are a few mass entertainers which survive all of this. People just watch this for its fun and frolic and that's what they are and you cannot discuss it more than that.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Varun Dhawan recently wrapped up the first schedule of his upcoming film Jug Jugg Jeeyo directed by Raj Mehta. The film also stars Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Kiara Advani, and Prajakta Koli.
