Varun, who was in Ludhiana for the first time to launch a cinema chain, stated that Ludhiana holds a particular place in his and his family's hearts. My father stayed in Ludhiana for his three-year graduation many years back. He became really excited and sentimental as soon as I told him I would be spending the day in this city. Even some of his college memories came back to him," added Varun, who also snapped some impressive images of the city from his car for his father.

When asked if he had seen any Punjabi movies, he mentioned that he had seen "Jatt James Bond" and "Carry on Jatta" by Gippy Grewal. He continued by saying that in addition to Punjabi movies, he also enjoys Punjabi music.
