“One thing that was life-changing for me was sugarcane juice. I started having sugarcane juice and I did it for a good 30 days non-stop”, Varun revealed, explaining that he loved having sugarcane juice not only because it worked wonders in boosting his energy but also because it helped improve his mood and stay upbeat through the shooting of October, which was had a rather morose plot.
Speaking about the pros of his second natural elixir, the actor said that the kokum sharbat worked as an excellent “natural fat-burner”.
