'I cannot stay on one movie for very long'
......says Varun Dhawan, talking about his mixed choice of roles in films
Varun Dhawan, who made his Bollywood debut with a commercial film Student of the Year and has experimented with a serious avatar in Badlapur and in the upcoming October, says he is not open to the idea of being typecast.
"I do not want to be typecast, whether it's going to be a commercial film, an art film, or whatever... The role I do should entertain people. As a person, I cannot stay on one movie for very long and if I do a very serious film, I need to do a comedy film," says Varun.
The actor is currently in New Delhi to shoot for his new film Sui Dhaaga. On Wednesday, he took time out of his shooting schedule to launch Tab bhi tu for October, which is directed by Shoojit Sircar and also stars newcomer Banita Sandhu.
Varun's last few films, including Judwaa 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, did good business at the box office. Asked how he maintains his calm when a film becomes a hit or a flop, he says "Once the film releases, I am the happiest. I am the happiest even while shooting for the film and promoting it. When the film releases, people talk about it and put you on a high and you enjoy that phase, but it's not only about that."
"It is not about receiving a place. I mean I obviously want people to like it and enjoy the film and I hope that the filmmaker's dream and his vision and message can reach people," adds Varun.
Varun Dhawan is currently awaiting the release of his film October, which will hit the screens on April 13.
