Mahesh Bhatt is Pure Magic and All Strength: Varun Mitra

Actor Varun Mitra has the best things to say about filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. Mitra will be seen in the directors’s banner Vishesh Films’ upcoming flick, Jalebi and Mahesh left a lasting impression on the actor. He believes that Bhatt is ‘pure magic and all strength.’ "Bhatt saab (Mahesh) is pure magic, and Mukeshji is all strength. While he interacts with your mind and makes sure everything is going fine, Bhatt saab, speaks to your heart and introduces you to a version of yourself that was buried deep down somewhere," Varun revealed.

Recalling one of his experiences while on set with the director, he said: "On day 23, we were shooting a heavy scene and I wasn't able to get into it. Bhatt saab noticed my vulnerabilities and pulled me off the set.

"As we sat down, he held my hand in silence. We didn't speak. It was that day and in that moment when I really opened up to him. My vulnerabilities found their way out of my body through my eyes. This gesture made shooting the scene a complete cakewalk."

He went on to say, "What has made it so easy to work with them is that they know what you are thinking of at all times. They read the discomfort behind your smile. As a newcomer, there have been times where I would hesitate to say and ask some things. But for Mukeshji and Bhatt saab, they already knew it."

Helmed by Pushpdeep Bhardwaj, Jalebi- The Everlasting Taste of Love is an upcoming romantic drama which also stars Rhea Chakraborty and Digangana Suryavanshi, the movie is presented by Vishesh Films in association with Mahesh Bhatt. Also produced by Mukesh Bhatt, the film is set to release on October 12.
