The 36-year old is currently playing a rich and powerful man, Thakoor Vikram Singh, in "Phir Subah Hogi" on Zee TV.
"When you are working in a daily soap, there is no fixed working hours. I am lucky that Raj (Rajeshwari) is from the same profession and understands it completely. There are no cat fights between us when I come late from shoot or can't give time to family," Varun told IANS. The couple has an year old son, Devagya.
After working as an assistant director with Tigmanshu Dhulia, Varun made his acting debut in 1994 in the TV show "Banegi Apni Baat", but became popular after Ekta Kapoor's "Koshish Ek Aashaa" and later did shows like "Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand", "Astitva...Ek Prem Kahani" and "Aek Chabhi Hai Padoss Mein".
Varun, who was seen with wife in dance reality series, "Nach Baliye", says it's an uphill task to work with your real life partner on reel.
"I always feel it is easier to work with someone else's wife instead of your own. Everyone expects you to have an amazing chemistry, which puts unnecessary pressure on me. If we ever work together, then I think our performances will be the last thing that people would judge. We would be judged for our chemistry," he said.
