Varun Dhawan wants to fol­low the Khans

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

He may be few films old but ac­tor Varun Dhawan(above) al­ready has his eyes set on the kind of films that the Khans do and he says that just like them, he wants to star in the projects, which ap­peal to the au­di­ences pan-In­dia. The 29-year-old has so far been part of Bol­ly­wood pot­boil­ers bar­ring Bad­la­pur and this, he says has been a con­scious de­ci­sion. “We need our films to do well. And com­mer­cial films don’t only mean masala. Com­mer­cial films also mean that films that ev­ery­one in the coun­try can watch—peo­ple in Bi­har can watch it, peo­ple in Ma­ha­rash­tra can watch it, peo­ple all over the coun­try can watch it,” ex­plains Varun. “Some­times we for­get that in our coun­try, there are so many other peo­ple who are liv­ing and might have dif­fer­ent pref­er­ences. I’m just try­ing to make that at­tempt, which I think the Khans do won­der­fully. They make films for the en­tire coun­try. Same goes for Ak­shay Ku­mar and Hrithik Roshan. My at­tempt is to make a film which ev­ery­one can en­joy.” His fourth film Bad­la­pur(2015), a thriller, was a far cry from what Varun did in his ear­lier films, though it was a de­par­ture from his happy-golucky on-screen im­age, his dark and ma­ture per­for­mance was ap­pre­ci­ated.
