Earlier, while speaking about his character Hamza in Darlings, Vijay Varma told, “I remember, somebody had told me, when Shah Rukh sir read the script; he was like ‘Agar main young hota toh yeh role main hi karta’ which was kind of interesting for me to hear. That was also one of the reasons I felt that I could do this role, if Shah Rukh Khan thinks that he can do this role, being an absolute lover-boy and a sweetheart. Of course, I was scared to take up a role like this, but I’m very glad that it hit the nail in the right place.”
