VARUN DHAWAN: PEOPLE ONLY WANT TO WATCH GOOD MOVIES
Varun Dhawan starrer October is ready to release on this Friday. The movie Banita Sandhu opposite Varun Dhawan and is directed by Shoojit Sircar.
While interacting with a leading daily, Varun talked about why he decided to do a film like October and said; “A movie like this doesn’t just come to you. Honestly, I chased it. I was trying to find a script like this for a long time. I went to Shoojit’s office and asked him if he had something for me. That time, he said he didn’t have anything. I think he wanted to cast a newcomer for this role. However, after a couple of meetings, I guess something in me convinced him. I knew from that day that when I enter his world, I have to abide by his rules. I’ve got to surrender and can’t do things that I only excel at.”
When he was asked if there is a shift in the kind of movies he is doing, he said; “No, there has been no shift. I have always been like that. I’m the same guy who did a Badlapur, a Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2. I like all kinds of cinema. There are people who watch everything. We are just so used to differentiating people saying ‘Yeh banda yeh dekhega’. It’s an outdated way of thinking. As the reviews are out faster today, you get to make up your mind whether you want to spend your money or not on a movie. If someone tells you, yeh bahut kharab film hai, even if it has your favourite star, you are not going to see it. No matter how big a star I am today, I know for a fact that whenever I do a bad film, no one is going to see it. People only want to watch good movies and they can be masala ones, too. If you don’t get it in Hindi, you have regional and English cinema. Then, there are digital platforms. There’s so much competition in terms of content and there are global stars today. October’s world premiere is happening in Dubai because of demand.”
