Varun Dhawan has come a long way with his popularity. He established himself as a versatile talent with back-to-back hits in both commercial and middle of the road projects. Now he is ready for a multi-starrer ‘Kalank’, produced by Karan Johar and directed by Abhishek Varman.
The actor who will be next seen in Kalank, says it also gives him the confidence to constantly swim against the tide in his film choices. He says, he feels this pressure with the release of his films and he is keeping his fingers crossed for the latest one, which hits the theatres next week.
In an interview, Varun told “It is difficult (to live up to the expectations) when you do something. And if it works, you have to keep defending that and live up to that name. ‘Kalank’ is a test… I feel responsible for this film. If it works, it will give me the confidence that I am on the right track,”
“I have always tried to swim against the tide like after ‘October’, I did ‘Judwaa 2’. I always try to do something that gives me thrill artistically. If I am not enjoying the character that I am playing, then it will reflect on the screen.
“Luckily, in my case, the stuff that I am enjoying as an actor, even the audience has loved it. I have always tried to put myself in their shoes. I was an audience before I became an actor. I am a fan of cinema,” says Varun.
He says, “It is more interesting to do multi-starrers. I believe actors should be cast for their acting capabilities and not for their stardom. All actors in the film suit the characters they are playing.”
Kalank also features Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt
