Here We Are Some Answering Questioning About Varun Dhawan Movies
After Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, you’re back with the same team for Badrinath ki Dulhania (BKD). What’s special this time?
Call it destiny but it’s really weird. A friend in college used to call me Badri. I guess, I was meant to play Badri someday. When Shashank Khaitan narrated the story about this boy from Jhansi, who falls in love, the problems he undergoes and his relationship with his parents, it interested me. For an urban boy like me to play a boy form Jhansi, a place I haven’t even visited was challenging.
Was Playing a Small-town guy tough?
I saw videos of and interacted with people form Uttar Pradesh. Shashank conducted a workshop with me for a good two months. I worked on the accent, the dialect, the body language…. even the way Badri Spoke on the mobile. After all the research and practise, I began thinking like him,feeling like Badri. I forged an emotional connect with the character. It doesn’t happen with every character. I’ve connected more with Badri than I had with Humpty.
Was It fun working With Alia Bhatt Again?
It’s amazing! She’s my first co-star(Student Of The Year -SOTY) so there’s always a special place for her in my heart. It’s a connection, you can’t explain. We’ve been through so many things together… performing on stage, promoting films, doing advertisements… Cinematically and creatively it’s been a long association between us.
How much has she changed since SOTY?
I’m actually the wrong person to ask this because she can’t change with me. What will she change? If she does anything that upsets me, I’II tell her to shut up. If I like something I’ll pat her back. As actors we also challenges each other. We’re competitive when we perform together.
What would you say about her growth as an actress?
It’s tremendous. I could scene that growth during Humpty. She actually helped me better my performance and it’s been the same in Badri. Her greatest strength is that she helps her co-actor. This is our third film together and we keep discovering things about each other. But it’s difficult to be vain in front of her.And it’s difficult for her to be vain in front of me. As performers, we know each other’s souls. If she says something , I know where it’s coming from. She knows me inside out as well.
Alia bhatt Can’t Change with me. What will she change? If she does anything that upsets me I’ll tell her to shut up. If I like something I’ll pat her back. As actor we also challenge each other. We’re competitive when we perform together.
What hasn’t changed about Alia?
Our chemistry. The connection, when we look at each other and start a scene, that’s the same.
You are popular director David Dhawan’s son.Your were backed by the celebrated Karan Johar in SOTY. was there immense pressure to prove your mettle?
I want through a lot during that time. Honestly, I didn’t enjoy the release of SOTY. I was too stressed out. I knew the film would do well. It had the master director Karan Johar who knew exactly what he was making. But I had angst within me to prove something to the world that I’m not here just because of my father. That dulled the enjoyment of seeing myself on screen I began enjoying that process Humpty onwards. I loved the phase when Badlapur released. I’ve learned to smile and be happy through a release I Seem to have made a small connection with the audience. And that gibes me a sense of reassurance.
How does It feels Stepping into Salman Khan’s shoes in Judwaa 2?
Judwaa 2 is a new story about two brothers. I don’t want to try and match impact that Salman bhai, Sajid Sir(Nadiadwala) and my dad created in the first one. I just want to give audience a new experiences. It’s funny that on the first day of shooting a couple of youngsters had come on the set.I asked them if they had seen Judwaa and some replied, “Yes on TV.” Those who haven’t watched it, it will be a brand-new film for them.
I’m trying to create newar nuances. Obviously, there are going to be references to the earlier film, to Salman bhai an the characters. Raja and prem But we’re trying to do new stuff as well. We’ve retained to two hit songs – Oonchi hai building and Tan Tana Tan Tan tara… from the original film
