I have only survived over here because of friendship. Like a friend said, ‘I believe in you, but I don’t have a budget’. So, people have really stood by me as I have stood by them.”

Jammwal said, “I remember when we were sitting I told him, ‘tu bahut badha star banega, ladke (you’ll become a very big star, boy)’, and he started laughing. After ‘Yaara’, he shot for ‘Gully Boy’. And the day I was proud for him, I had not been proud like this for anybody in a long time. This is the kind of friendship I have with Vijay, Amit Sadh, and Kenny Basumatry.”

Helmed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, Yaara is a Bollywood remake of the French film Gang Story. The film will release on the occasion of Friendship Day, July 30, on Zee5.
