Varun Dhawan always wanted to do gritty cinema made by Sriram Raghavan and Anurag Kashyap,he did not always plan to be launched in a commercial film.
Varun Dhawan did different kinds of roles since his debut in Student Of The Year. But, most of them have been on a lighter side with a comic element to them. Even though Varun has gone onto to do versatile roles in movies like Badlapur, October and Sui Dhaaga, he is one of the few actors who is excelling in all kinds of genres.
Speaking at the session of IFFI 2018, Varun Dhawan said, “Initially, my leaning was always towards the left side. I loved Anurag Kashyap’s Black Friday and all of Sriram Raghavan’s films. I was almost leaning towards there. I would have given my right hand at that time to be launched by Anurag Kashyap. I was excited to work there. Obviously, no one was taking me seriously then. I auditioned for Dhobi Ghat but didn’t get the part.”
