Vijay Varma is on the French Riviera for the 76th version of the Cannes Movie Pageant. The actor, who’s a part of the Indian delegation, has opened up about his Cannes debut, in 2013, and the way not one of the designers have been able to model him for the occasion. Vijay Varma’s movie Monsoon Shootout premiered on the prestigious movie competition a decade in the past. The actor, in an interplay with Film Companion, recalled these days and mentioned, “When I came here, I bought one jacket from Zara, which I could afford. But for the main event, for two events, they said you have to wear the whole suit. And I went to people, saying, ‘Can some designer come, can some stylist help me out?’ And they said, ‘Who’s Vijay Varma? We don’t want to dress anybody.’”

Vijay Varma added that one in every of his buddies gifted him a Zara go well with, which he wore for the morning picture name. He mentioned, “So, a friend of mine gifted me a Zara suit, which I wore for the morning photo call. And somebody stitched me a tuxedo for the red carpet. That’s how I went.” 

The actor added that he did not have the cash to purchase his footage. “After I noticed the images, they got here out on Getty Photos and all these locations, which I did not have cash to purchase from,” he added. The actor continued, “Now, that I have revisited the pictures after 10 years… I was like thora sa usmay a raha hai Marwari Johnny Depp”.  

When asked if he was confused or frustrated after being turned down by designers, Vijay Varma added, “I didn’t know any of it. Really. It was stupid of me…naive of me to ask. And, it was equally understandable why it didn’t come through.” 

Vijay Varma will be next seen in Devotion of Suspect X alongside Kareena Kapoor and Jaideep Ahlawat.
