It couldn't have been easy to portray the toxic Hamza with conviction. He is a bullied ticket collector by day who violently abuses his wife at night just to make reformation promises the next morning. But in Darlings, Vijay Varma shines brilliantly with Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah without ever hitting a false note. Days after the movie's Netflix release, the actor claims his character is inundated with hateful comments online, a surefire indication that he embodied the part well.
Varma told Mid-Day that all the hatred is directed at Hamza. People are saying that the actor wants to murder him, punch him, and do other such things. But he is getting a lot of attention for his acting side. That gives Varma comfort when he takes risks like this. Additionally, some women support him for playing a role that called out the demons in their lives.
Director Jasmeet K. Reen revealed in a recent interview with mid-day that the writers spent months developing and humanising Hamza. When Varma assumed the position, he dove even farther into the procedure. He quizzed about why he raises his hand to Badru, who is Bhatt's character, and some other questions he had. Khan also asked why he was yelling at her and Jasmeet and he spoke about it. However, the actor refrained from judging the character while he was portraying it since doing so would be unfair.
After Gully Boy, Darlings is his second project with Bhatt. Her capacity to understand the subtleties of her character during preparation astounds him. The actor said that she is nearly possessed by the amount of math she does about the job in her head. The actor is always planning how her character would act, and she won't leave that area until she has solved the problem. With her, Varma had the nicest time working.
