I am the only actor who is doing something new: Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan has mostly worked in masala films in his career so far. The actor has claimed that only he is doing something new in Bollywood. In an interview to a Times of India, he said,

“Frankly, I sometimes feel I am the only person who is doing something new. Tell me, who else is doing comedy? Akshay Kumar is the only actor, who is actually doing comedy today. I don’t think we can think of one young actor who is doing it. I am not saying that is good or bad, they are doing great things that they think is right and I am drawn to the kind of films I like doing. But making people laugh is a gift and getting it right is tough. Yes, I am very nervous about Judwaa 2 as there’s so much hype around it already. Somewhere, there’s a tapori hidden in me. I have certain characteristics and that’s probably because of the films that I grew up watching.”

He also revealed that he does films keeping the box office perspective in his mind. “I have to do films that get offered to me, I can’t say I want to do this or that. I have heard a lot of scripts and somewhere, I thought those films won’t work; it might work for 10 people, but I don’t want to do films for just 10 people. Very often, people tell me how I should do films like ‘Badlapur’, but Sriram Raghavan (director) had that script at that time and it just fell into place. I obviously have to set a certain benchmark in my career to go all out and do just what I want to do.”

“I don’t want to burn people’s money for the sake of experimenting. I have a responsibility towards the audience and the producers who are putting their money in my film. And even if I want to do something very different, my responsibility is to make that film work at the box office. Yes, I agree that I can’t settle in one genre. I like different genres, like I would love to do an animated film at some point, but then again, I should be confident that it will work.”

Varun Dhawan is gearing up for his next release Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Also starring Alia Bhatt in the lead, the film is set to hit the screens this Friday. It is a sequel to 2014’s release Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.

  1. Absolutely false . Honestly he is the only actor who has not done anything new except Badlapur . Ranbir has done Rocket Singh, Wake Up Sid, Raajneeti, Rockstar and Barfi ! . Ranveer has done Lootera and BM . Sushant has done Kai Po Che, DBB and MSD . I honestly feel Bad is living in a fools world . Yes he has a 100 % success ratio but he is only doing commercial Potboilers . I don’t have any problem with him doing commercial films but this statement does not makes any sense . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bacche ko attitude AAA gaya hai
    Badri flop hone ke baad shaant ho jaayega

  3. Lol.
    Copying Govinda & Salman Khan cant be called new. All his filmography is filled up with similar / alike roles apart from Badlapur.

  4. Only actor at this time who is taking risk and doing challenging roles is undoubtedly Akshay Kumar.

  5. Something new = Crap
    After what he says now, i am not going to watch his *new movie* who has *new things* , He is the next salman they said, He’s going to be a Criminal they never said!

    lol ! the actors doing new things are hrithik roshan , amir khan ! akki n srk sometimes do experimental roles!

  10. Varun is future superstar. He will rock. Rest all new actors are craps and king of flopbusters. Ranveer(Befikre,Lootera,Kill Dil)
    Siddharth(Baar baar dekho, Brothers), Shahid(Rangoon and so many others), Ranbir(Velvet, Besharam),Arjun(Tevar, Finding Fanny).
    Siddharth does not even knows how to do acting.
    Varun is yet to dissapoint at box office.
