Varun Dhawan is touted as one of the most popular young actors in Bollywood. Dhawan attended an event in the Delhi wherein he got candid about the concept of relationships, Judwaa 2 and his upcoming projects.
Talking about the concept of relationships, he said, “If you love someone, you cannot be scared of it. It’s a very old school that if an actor is dating someone, it will take away from his fan following.”
On Judwaa 2, he said, “Both the looks in Judwaa 2 are different. One is an orphan from Mumbai, the other one is from Britain. It’s about twins, and it’s special because it is coming back after 20 years. My homework for this film was Angoor. Judwaa 2 is the 2017 version of Judwaa 2. It is a rebooted version.
It was really hard to do Judwaa 2. It was mentally and physically taxing to play two roles at one time. And since it’s a David Dhawan film, making everyone laugh is important.”
Talking about his upcoming films, he said, “You need to make a few choices, even if people don’t like you in it. But I am trying to do different roles. I will be doing a different film with Shoojit Sircar.
And then a film with Anushka Sharma called Sui Dhaga. People love you and make a star. And media perception helps to make it bigger. It’s all them. I am not doing anything.”
Dhawan was also asked about nepotism, to which he said, “It is definitely true that your entry will be easier. You will get a chance to say hi-hello to a lot more people. You have to get the box office returns. It could be true for one or two early films, but in the long run, you have to deliver. No one has money to burn. It’s super important to make you own name. No one accepts mediocrity. Content is the star today, and they want to see that. As an artist, you have to make quality stuff.”
