‘Jugjugg Jeeyo’ a progressive interpretation of infidelity, divorce: Varun Dhawan

Actor Varun Dhawan says his aspiring family entertainer, “Jugjugg Jeeyo,” presents a new take on infidelity and divorce. The comedy-drama, supported by Dharma Productions, centers on a family where both father and son plan to divorce their partners.

Directed by Raj Mehta, the film also stars veteran actors Neetu Kapoor and Anil Kapoor, as well as Kiara Advani, Maniesh Paul and Prajakta Koli. Varun said the film may be loaded with all the tropes of a commercial pot boiler, but at its core it’s an emotional story about relationships. “The ending of this film is unpredictable. We are used to treating the topic of infidelity only superficially and then sweeping it under the rug. In this film it is treated in an interesting way. It’s progressive and a new attitude. Hopefully people will be happy with that,” the actor said at the film’s promotional event here. Mehta, who is best known for doing 2019’s box office hit Good News, said they raised the issue of divorce but had no intention of offering any solutions.

“We didn’t try to give answers, but presented them in an entertaining way. Hopefully these characters will lead the audience to some answers,” he added. Also present at the event were Neetu Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. The veteran stars said people need to look at both the positive and negative aspects of their partners. “Marriage is about thinking from your partner’s perspective. Both people involved must have this approach. I’m someone who looks for both pros and cons in a person,” said Anil Kapoor, who is married to Sunita Kapoor in real life. Neetu Kapoor, wife of the late actor Rishi Kapoor, said that only the two people involved in a relationship are responsible for taking care of it. When asked if she has any advice for her son Ranbir Kapoor, who recently tied the knot with Alia Bhatt, the actor said the two are smart enough to figure things out on their own.

“Children today are very smart, intelligent and aware. You don’t need anyone’s advice. They see their parents and learn from their relationship,” she added.

Presented by Viacom18 Studios and Dharma Productions, “Jugjugg Jeeyo” will be released on Friday.
