Varun Dhawan has donned the 'Massy Hero' tag proudly since the beginning of his career, and it has worked wonders for him. The pandemic has altered his state of mind, but not his preferences or passion for cinema. The actor recently shone on screens with another massy film, JugJugg Jeeyo, and wowed his fans with his captivating aura.
In a recent interview with a leading portal, Varun Dhawan opened up about his preference for films as an actor and exploring uncomfortable zones.
Talking about how he used to dub himself as a massy entertainer, Varun quoted to Times Of India,
"My current release has given me a lot of confidence. Now, I just want to do crowd-entertainers and massy films. I feel that working with good directors like Shoojit Sarkar, Nitesh Tiwari, and Sriram Raghavan has helped me grow. Sometimes, you get to do a large-scale entertainer like Bhediya, where you also get to perform."
Varun says that even after films like October and Badlapur, which earned him widespread acclaim, he still feels more at ease doing massy entertainers. He also says that every time he steps into a set to perform a character that is very different from what he has played in the past, it gives him jitters and makes him nervous which is good because it often brings the best in him.
He also stated that collaborating with good filmmakers such as Shoojit Sarkar, Nitesh Tiwari, and Sriram Raghavan has helped him evolve. The actor also stated that he has always wanted to accomplish something similar to Amar Kaushik's Bhediya, which has not done in recent years.
Varun Dhawan has a slew of films in his kitty. He will next be seen in Nitesh Tiwar's Bawaal alongside Janhvi Kapoor and Bhediya costarring Kriti Sanon.
