Don’t get enough time to spend with family: Varun
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan says he gets upset when he doesn’t get enough time to spend with his family and friends that he grew up with.
During the promotions of “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”, Varun was asked the one factor that worried him the most about being a popular actor.
He said: “If people who are close to me doubt anything about me, that really hurts. For instance, due to my busy schedule for films, I do not get enough time to spend with my family.
“Even though I manage it (time) with my immediate family, I don’t (get to) meet my cousins whom I have grown up with. I missed so many close friends’ weddings.
“They must be thinking that I do not visit them, pick up their calls… They might just misunderstand me and that make me sad. My life revolves around films. But I would want to be with them.”
Starting his career with a multi-starrer film “Student Of The Year” in 2012, Varun, who is five years and seven films old in Bollywood, believes that though he has a long way to go and wants to experiment with different genres of films, there have been some projects that have changed him as an actor. He credits the directors for that.
“Though all films are different experiences, I must mention two films that changed me as an actor — ‘Badlapur’ and ‘ABCD 2’,” said Varun.
“‘Badlapur’ was one of the crucial films where I explored a very different character that I usually do not get to play. On the other hand, I think industry people took me seriously as a solo hero after the release of ‘ABCD 2’. Since it was a 3D film, shot in 3D cameras, that technology was very interesting to utilize in dance performance.
“The film got a big opening… So that year (2015) itself was crucial, where two very different films by two directors with different conviction, managed to make a mark in my career, as an actor and hero,” he added.
The actor, who is busy shooting his father-cum-veteran director David Dhawan’s directorial venture “Judwaa 2”, said his father was looking forward to watch his performance in “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”.
Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the movie, featuring Varun with Alia Bhatt, is slated to release on March 10.
