My film choices are erratic: Varun Dhawan

Mumbai: Impressing masses as well as critics with a mix bag of serious and light-hearted roles, actor Varun Dhawan says he is erratic when it comes to his movie choices.

“I am quite erratic in my decisions. I did a ‘Main Tera Hero’ then ‘Badlapur’ and then suddenly a dance film, followed by a Rohit Shetty film. I would want to dabble through genres because it is exciting for me. If I keep repeating the same genre I would be bored,” Varun told PTI.

The 29-year-old actor will next be seen in brother Rohit Dhawan’s buddy-cop movie “Dishoom”, alongside John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez, which is set to release this Friday.

It will mark Varun’s first brush with the action genre and the actor considers the film a huge responsibility.

“‘Dishoom’ is a big responsibility, a big challenge for me. In terms of both, being a good film and a box office success. Even if you don’t want to feel (the pressure) some people make you. I want to just think if it is a good film or a bad film. Terming it in various numbers is the producer’s job. I am on the creative side,” he said.

The “ABCD 2” star shared that he and his brother did not bring their personal relationship to the sets and Rohit treated him just like any other actor.

“On set I am always hyper, coming with ideas but Rohit is very well planned… He doesn’t like to break away from it. When we were shooting in Abu Dhabi, our relationship was only from the set to the end of the day. He was clear he wanted me to be Junaid and not his brother on set.”

With both father and sibling filmmakers, one would expect career discussions on the dinner table, and though Varun agreed he speaks to his family about his films the last call is always his.

“There are talks but I always take my own decision and that’s why they are so erratic. I don’t follow any set path. I am quite like the pokemons. I am always on the run,” he adds.
