Varun Dhawan On Family Entertainer: Actor Varun Dhawan believes that there has been a decline in the number of Hindi commercial films largely because Bollywood is “influenced” by Western cinema to a large extent. Rejoicing the success of his film, who was seen in ‘Jug Jug Jeeyo’, Varun said that the film industry is in a transition phase during the pandemic, where everyone is looking for films that have worked at the box office. Unsure about.
He said, “We have largely stopped making masala family entertainers because we are heavily influenced by the West… In the beginning, no one knows what kind of films will work. From the biggest producers to people doing business. Till now, no one does and yet every week we will come out and give the knowledge that it works, it works.”
Varun Dhawan said the production house and his co-stars Anil Kapoor and Kiara Advani have always been associated with family entertainment as they too believe in the genre. Advani’s other theatrical release, the horror comedy ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ has emerged as one of the biggest Bollywood hits of the year.
do what you believe in
He said, “The world has changed, no one knew that COVID-19 was coming. It hit us, everything went for a toss. So you have to do what you believe in. Dharma believes in family entertainment, Karan Johar believes in the genre, he always has. I believe in this genre, I have always done such films… my career is based on this. Anil Kapoor and Kiara also believe in it. It’s not like we’re doing it (for this).”
Varun has these projects
After Jugjug Jio, the 35-year-old actor has two films lined up – filmmaker Amar Kaushik’s monster comedy ‘Bhediya’ and Nitesh Tiwari’s love story ‘Bawal’. While ‘Bawal’ is still under construction, ‘Bhedia’ is slated for release in November. The pair will be back together with producer Dinesh Vijan after their 2015 thriller ‘Badlapur’.
“From the wolf, one should expect the unexpected. He said that Amar is coming back after ‘Stree’ and ‘Bala’, and I am coming back after ‘Badlapur’ with Dinesh. He is someone who only wants to work with me on totally different and deepest ideas. This is our passion project and we are all set with that film.
Without divulging any details about ‘Bawal’, the actor said he feels blessed to have got a chance to work with Tiwari. He said, “Phir Bawal Hai, one of my favorite directors, Nitesh Tiwari. I was very much looking forward to work with him but I didn’t know how I would get this opportunity. I feel very blessed that this has happened. I had an amazing time every day on the set, because he is such a nice person and such a funny person.”
Varun returned to the big screen after two years of ‘Street Dancer 3D’ with Dharma Productions’ ‘Jug Jug Jio’. The Raj Mehta-directed comedy, backed by Karan Johar, has collected over Rs 60 crore at the domestic box office and over Rs 100 crore worldwide since its release on June 24.
