Vijay Varma on being dropped from a project: Astrologer didn't like my pictures


Vijay Varma is one of the most sought-after actors in the Indian film industry at present. He has some of the most exciting projects in the pipeline and fans cannot wait to see his magic on screen. However, his journey hasn't been smooth. In an interview with News18, Vijay revealed he was dropped from a film just because the astrologer associated with the project didn't like his pictures. 

Vijay shared, "I once learned that I was selected for a part and was then asked to send some pictures. I won’t name, who asked me. After that, I was dropped from the film and I believe the reason was that a jyotish (astrologer) did not like my pictures. He did not approve of the prospect of casting me. The astrologer did not believe in me."

Crediting Naseeruddin Shah for making him stronger, the actor added, "I never lost sight or hope. I think that Naseer (Naseeruddin Shah) Sahab told us when we were students, he said, ‘If you want to become an actor but you also have a Plan B, then just take that Plan B because if you want to be an actor, you have to go through a lot of tough times. It may not be easy for you.’ So, I was prepared to have just this one path and wait till my time comes."

Vijay had a successful year with back-to-back hits. He was seen in Dahaad, Lust Stories 2, Kaalkoot and Jaane Jaan.
