Varun Dhawan. The name is enough to automatically think about evolution.
This actor took the unconventional route not once, but time and again, only to get noticed among all type of audiences.
Despite being a star kid to a star director David Dhawan, Varun chose his path – the one of risk and struggle.
After being an assistant director on the sets of ‘My Name Is Khan’, the actor bagged his debut movie with none other than Karan Johar’s directorial. That movie, ‘Student Of The Year’, went on to become a surprise hit in 2012, and it gave Varun a lot of girl fans, along with some strong friends in Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, and of course, KJo himself.
It was only then that Varun chose to work with his father in a comic role with ‘Main Tera Hero’, which is again where all the masses absolutely loved seeing his crazy side as Sheenu, something which reminded them of Govinda from the 90s.
The same year he was also seen in the role of a lover in Karan’s production ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, where his pairing with Alia Bhatt also garnered lots of praises.
When we all thought he would get stereotyped as a romantic lover boy who does comic roles at some point of time, he broke the norm and did a film like ‘Badlapur’ thus proving he can do any kind of roles.
Soon after, he proved that he can fit in with upcoming talents by doing Remo D’Souza’s ‘ABCD 2’, and then he just became a part of the franchise, as he is all set to do the third instalment of this movie.
Despite doing ‘Dilwale’, the actor did not see a single flop in his 6-year career, a benchmark which no actor has touched.
The actor once again picked up roles like ‘Dishoom’ (directed by his brother Rohit Dhawan), ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ (the second instalment of ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’) and ‘Judwaa 2’ (a remake of the original starring Salman Khan). All the 3 movies collected enough box office numbers and it was a film for the mass.
But then he again picked a soft, art type of film - Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’, where he played a character like his real life – who evolved from a young man to a mature adult, and thus the actor, attracting both mass and class audiences, is on his path to become a superstar who is all set to rule over all kind of people.
