Varun Dhawan was most recently seen in Dharma Productions’ Jug jugg Jeeyo, which featured Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor and Kiara Advani. There was a wave of projects he did with the production following his debut in KJo’s Student Of The Year. Following the debacle of Kalank, Jugjugg Jeeyo marked their first project together. But, after five years, Karan Johar is returning as a director with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles.
During the course of the conversation, when asked how he felt when he signed Ranveer Singh for a film over him. He said, “It definitely made me think, am I slipping in my game? Have I not created that right body of work or image as an actor for Karan to consider me in his films? Sometimes it was also along the lines of why Karan thinks I can’t do these roles. For me, it is more in terms of introspection of my competencies. It never leads to me feeling envious or defeated by your selection. I take it as an opportunity to analyze where I can possibly improve.”
On the work front, Varun Dhawan has Bhediya, Bawaal and a few more projects in the pipeline.
