Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan, who delivered a power-packed performance in his last release ‘Dishoom’, says actors can’t take stardom or success too seriously.

“As an actor, you cannot take the stardom or your success very seriously. Every Friday things change… All of this (stardom) is here because of cinema. Like I say, I am here to be an actor — whether it is doing comedy, dance or action roles — if I am able to evoke an emotion among the audience, then my work is done,” he said.


Varun, while attending an event on Saturday, said he was grateful for all the love his fans showered on him, and also promised to work harder.

Out of all the films that he has been a part of, ‘Dilwale’ starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, was probably the most star-studded film Varun appeared in. However, it did not receive great response. Was it a mistake to be a part of the film?

“I will never say that ‘Dilwale’ was a mistake. Rohit has entertained the audience for years and years, and it also starred Shah Rukh Khan who is a super duper star. Maybe a lot of people didn’t like the film, maybe I was also not at my best. I could have done way better,” answered Varun.

On the professional front, the actor is now working on ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’, the sequel to his romantic flick ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’.
