In an interview to PTI, the actor confessed that working with Tigmanshu Dhulia as assistant director in his early films Haasil and Charas has helped him in a better understanding of the craft.
"I must confess I was in very good hands when I was working with Tigmanshu Dhulia. They have inbuilt that particular 'writing ka keeda' in me which is prevailing within me till today. I would like to credit them for all the good work that I have been appreciated for," Varun said in a statement.
The actor further added, “I have written more concepts which are under process now but that have become my backend work as I am involved full time with Mere Dad ki Dulhan. But direction will happen soon."

He had decided to take a break from directing to do some acting when he was offered the television serial Astitva..Ek Prem Kahani. He shot to fame when he played the role of a mentally disabled person on the television show Koshish which proved to be a super-hit. He has directed and written the script for the show Aek Chabhi Hai Padoss Mein.
