Varun Dhawan wants to follow the Khans
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.
