He danced, laughed, romanced and kicked, all in quick succession in his recent release Main Tera Hero. Then Varun Dhawan traveled across the country to promote the film. Now, after a party held to celebrate the film’s success, there will be time just for a mini-break for Varun Dhawan who is going to almost immediately begin shooting for his next film.
Varun’s next is a dark thriller by Sriram Raghavan who will be stepping back into direction after Agent Vinod. Making a film of this genre comes naturally to this filmmaker as was seen in his earlier works — Johnny Gaddaar and Ek Haseena Thi.
Apparently, Varun is playing a twin role. He says, “For obvious reasons I can’t reveal too much about the film or the plot or the characterization. All I can say is that the film as well as my character is going to shock a lot of people out there. Expect the unexpected.”
Varun is mighty kicked about the movie; especially because it is a complete shift of genre from what he has done in Main Tera Hero or for that matter Student of the Year. From the feel good world of Karan Johar and David Dhawan films, he will be making a complete departure.
There is of course a price for success at a young age. Varun admits to being exhausted both physically and mentally after the hard work he had to go through for Main Tera Hero. But the young actor enthuses that that the concept of his yet-untitled film with Sriram is so powerful that he is raring to go.
“In fact, I started prepping for it even when the promotion of Main Tera Hero was on. I have to seep into this the character early as we go on floors this month itself,” says Varun.
