Trying to do different films, roles: Varun Dhawan
About his journey in the industry till now, Varun said: “I still feel it is very soon, I just want to try and do things I believe in, I’ve never taken a decision thinking that a film will make so much money at the box-office.
“My decisions have always been about what the audience will enjoy, that’s why I’m trying to do different roles, films that look a little different from regular films, the music could be different, the background, the way it is shot.
“I’m trying to offer the audience something new because in today’s digital day and age, it’s very easy for people to get bored, because we’re exposed to so much global cinema. So it’s very important as an artist, that I keep expanding and exploring new avenues.”
He was interacting with media at an event for Skybags, for which he is a brand ambassador.
While Varun has featured in mostly commercial entertainers, his “Badlapur” act was something different, which got him nominated for almost all the award shows this year.
His journey in the industry has started on a positive note, with all his films making substantial money at the box office. Though his last film “Dilwale” failed to live up to the massive expectations it had, it still did good business overseas. His debut film “Student Of The Year” co-stars Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, though they have had films with average to poor response recently.
Asked if he had left behind Sidharth in the race, Varun said: “I don’t see things that way, I see that we are an industry together… film industry is a very democratic unit and it has to function that way for the industry to thrive.
“Year on year if the industry does well, that is when every artist will do well. How many films we are producing and how many are doing well and not doing well, it has to be looked at in totality. It happens that someone’s films work and sometimes it doesn’t, that’s life. I think Sidharth is a very good actor, very capable and in the coming years, he is really going to show it a lot.”
Varun will next be seen in “Dishoom”.– (IANS)
