Varun Dhawan, who started off with doing roles that depicted the happy and humorous side of him has expanded his abilities by doing a film like Badlapur. The Student Of The Year star hopes that 2015 will be the year that will mark his name in the film industry.
In a recent interview the actor revealed his expectations from this year and that it is do or die for him now. He also stated that petty comparisons mean nothing to him as he is just concentrating on his own career. So being compared to his ex co-stars Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt doesn’t affect Varun.
“I don’t believe in rat race and try to keep away from it but somehow media keeps on comparing. I believe we all are working here for the betterment of Indian movies and taking the industry ahead,” says the 27-year-old actor.
The actor further stated, “It will be a make or break year for me. I know we are underdogs but if ‘Badlapur’ works then it will be entering to a Rs 100 crore club. I just want the audience to like the film.”
“People often compare me with Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and young Govinda. But I just want to be next me. While growing years I have seen these actors work and somehow they have an influence on me,” says Varun Dhawan who wants to create his own identity in the industry rather than staying in his father’s shadow.
Set to release on February 20, Badlapur is directed by Sriram Raghavan and produced by Sumil Lulla and Dinesh Vijan; the film stars Nawazddin Siddique, Huma Qureshi, Yami Gautam,Divya Dutta and Radhika Apte, other than Varun Dhawan.
