I am ‘little’ dramatic – Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan at India Today Youth Summit

New Delhi, 17th September 2016: 

Varun Dhawan entered to a rapturous applause. People are screaming in abandon, the women louder than the men, and for a moment, it becomes evident why there’s so much security standing at the front of the stage. “I can see a lot of schoolchildren in here,” he says as he enters “so clearly I’m in the right place.”


Here is what Varun has to say on his first kiss:

“I’m not going to tell you her name… a gentleman doesn’t kiss and tell. Anyway, I was 13 years old, she was a year younger than me. It was at the back of her building. I don’t know why, but I thought I knew what I was going to be doing. I’d seen Titanic and all. After a few minutes of my fumbling around, she got impatient, caught me, said ‘what are you doing?’ and then just went for it…”


On relationships:

“I don’t think this generation is as ‘fast’ as people say. I mean, the 70’s had their flower-power generation. It’s just a phase that they went thorough, and now we’re going through.”

“Relationships are awesome, I think we need them. There’s lots of kinds; friendship, family… but you have to work on them, invest in your relationships,  in people.”


On his first relationship:

“I was in college at the time… it was the first serious, long term relationship I’d been in. I think it had lasted four months… but then she cheated with me. I think I dealt with it okay; I’m a little dramatic – I’m an actor, after all – so I think I somewhere wanted to experience heartbreak anyway. There are supposed to be nine emotions, and you need to go through all of them to learn.”


While transitioning to the next part of the session – Fitness – the moderator suggested that Varun offer the room a look at his six pack. Smoothly distracting the room, Varun instead reminded the room that it was also Narendra Modi’s birthday. Getting everyone to pull their phones out and put on their flashlights, Varun led the room in a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday, Mr Modi’.

There was also a fitness section, that featured, among other things, a quick lesson on pushups. The crowd goes wild as he pulls off his jacket, then gets into position on the carpeted stage. “When you’re doing a pushup,” he said, as people screamed in delight, “make sure your arm bends backwards, not sticking out.” This was rounded off with a quick John Abraham impression: “Ya, that’s the posture, yeah, yeah, yeah!” (While Varun pretends to be doing bicep curls.)

Old or New.. Whats your pick?

Old or new? Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut

Experts say that fresh pairs and hit jodis will keep Bollywood’s cash register ringing this season

A flurry of Bollywood films with never-seen-before lead pairs will release in the next two months, while the festive season will see a bunch of big-budget films with tried and tested pairs on screen.

And experts feel that the mix will help the box office garner big revenue.

The fresh pairs include Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif, who will be seen in Kabir Khan’s next, Kangana Ranaut and Imran Khan as well as John Abraham and Shruti Haasan in the sequel of the hit film Welcome (2007).

Among the existing hit jodis, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in Tamasha, Ranveer Singh and Deepika in Bajirao Mastani and Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in Dilwale, will be back on celluloid to recreate magic.

Talking about how a fresh pair helps a film, trade analyst Atul Mohan says, “The audience today wants everything to be new – be it scripts, storyline or the actors. A new pair creates extra interest that translates into more business.”

Trade analyst Komal Nahta adds, “The audience wants an entire package, only the hero and heroine can’t pull off a film. However, during the festive season when big budget films release, a tried and tested pair works better.”

Filmmaker Sabbir Khan, who has worked with both newcomers and hit pairs, says: “Obviously, both have their pros and cons but I get excited when a film with a fresh pair releases. However, I don’t mind watching SRK and Kajol together.”

Shashank Khaitan, who directed Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014), cast actors Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan after their first hit Student of the Year (2012), says, “If a hit pair doesn’t suit the script, it can backfire. Actors are moving out of their comfort zones and there will only be more experiments now.”
