Actors Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani are all set to be seen together for the first time in director Raj Mehta’s ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’. In a recent interview, Varun revealed that he and Kiara fought 2-3 times before shooting a fight scene, and it was so intense that Raj Mehta had to step in.

Recalling an intense fight scene from the movie, the actor opened up about getting into arguments with Kiara. He said, “I and Kiara got into 2-3 fights before we shot the scene genuinely. Because we were discussing the scene and she was like ‘I will say this.’ And I was like ‘but that’s not my point of view’. As a man that’s not my point of view. I have to earn for my family because that’s what I have been taught. She’s like ‘no you are chauvinistic’ How’s that chauvinistic? Your brother and father think the same way. Then why I am chauvinistic if I feel I need to earn for my family. That’s what I am taught by my parents in childhood.”

The actor added that he fought a lot with Kiara on the sets, so much so that Raj Mehta had to stop them. ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’ is a family entertainer that addresses relationships and complex emotions. It was released on June 24, and stars Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor in lead roles, besides Varun and Kiara. It also features Maneish Paul and marked the Bollywood debut of YouTube star Prajakta Koli.
