Vijay Varma confessed his “one-sided love” for his Jaane Jaan co-star Kareena Kapoor.

Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Jaane Jaan is centred on a single mother caught up in a murder.

Premiering on Netflix, Vijay’s performance was praised.

He is now set to share the screen with Kareena’s sister Karisma in Murder Mubarak.

Detailing his experience of working with the sisters, Vijay admitted having “one-sided love” for Kareena, while also forming a strong friendship with Karisma.

Speaking to Siddharth Kannan, Vijay said: “People saw the affection I had for Kareena in the film Jaane Jaan.

“That’s a fatal attraction, one-sided love for Kareena.

“The kind of love where you admire the person from a distance.

“With Karisma, on the other hand, I got to hang out with her very closely and we became very good friends.

“There is a good friendship between us, a lot of love and I have been her fan.”

Jaane Jaan marked Kareena’s first on-screen collaboration with Vijay Varma and Jaideep Ahlawat.

It broke the record for the biggest opening weekend viewership for an Indian film on Netflix.

During the promotion of Jaane Jaan, Kareena Kapoor mentioned how her husband Saif Ali Khan had warned her to be prepared before shooting with them, indicating their dedication to their craft.

She explained: “Saif was like, ‘You need to be a little more prepared as they are going to be very well-prepared’.”

As for Murder Mubarak, Vijay Varma and Karisma Kapoor will share the screen with Sara Ali Khan, Sanjay Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Tripathi.

Directed by Homi Adajania, the film is based on Anuja Chauhan’s book Club You To Death.

It is set to premiere on Netflix on March 15, 2024.

The buzz around Murder Mubarak has been skyrocketing as the makers have been unveiling various promotional assets from the film.

On March 8, the first track ‘Yaad Aave’ was released and showcased Vijay Varma and Sara Ali Khan’s strong on-screen chemistry.

The song narrates unconditional love and a safe space that Sara and Vijay’s characters feel for each other despite the odds.

‘Bhola Bhola Baby’ was soon released and its catchy tune was a complete contrast to the first track.

With an intriguing mystery-thriller narrative and a stellar cast, the film promises to be an entertaining watch for audiences.
