“Some people wanted Badlapur to fail,” says Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan is riding high with the success of ‘Badlapur’. And why not, the film has become the second highest grosser of 2015.

And with this current success, Varun got in to a candid conversation and as per a Bollywood Hungama report, he said, “There was a lot of pressure that I felt right through the making of Badlapur. As a matter of fact ever since I signed the film, there was a lot of baggage that I was carrying with me. There was some level of negativity for sure. A lot of people wanted me to fail as well. However, there were well-wishers too who believed that I would be successful.”

About showing the grim reality of the world, this revenge plot clicked with the audience. And Varun suddenly seems all excited as he said, “I am glad it has because now we would be able to experiment more in films, just like the way we did with ‘Badlapur’. Why should one show fantasy on screen all the time? It is important that audience see a different side of life as well. I have done three happy films already but then boss, life mein aur bhi bahaut kuch hota hai, ya phir ho sakta hai. One needs to be prepared mentally as well as emotionally.”

While Nawazuddin and he were shown opposites in the film, both had a shadow of negativity in them. About their characters been rolled into a one, Varun says, “It was never about this role being dark or bright; I don’t agree with such classification. This is life, people live and die, a child is born and eventually everyone has to die. You have to leave the world. You may not want to accept it but then that is the reality.”
