Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan, who is gearing up for his latest release Bhediya, admits Hindi films are getting their a**es kicked right now.
Hindi films in trouble
Notable Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan is gearing up for his latest release Bhediya, which is directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan. Varun, who was last seen in the family drama Jugjugg Jeeyo, is all set to appear in a never seen before avatar of a werewolf and is quite excited about the film’s performance in theaters. As the promotional activity is in full swing, the actor recently opened up about the comparison of Hindi and South films.
While speaking to the media, Varun Dhawan admitted that Hindi films are facing a difficult time as South films are becoming blockbusters. He said, “I know it sounds really easy right now because the Hindi films are getting their a**es kicked right now. So maybe it’s a great time and easy answer for me to say that. I have always wanted to do films in Telugu, and Tamil. And now Bhediya is going to release in Telugu and Tamil as well. It’s a great time for all filmmakers, technicians, and actors, everyone to come together.”
Bollywood vs South films
The 35-year-old actor also said that instead of seeing it as Bollywood vs South films, we should celebrate the fact that Indian films are doing wonders across the world comparing the same to India’s campaign at the ongoing T20 World Cup.
“Indian films are doing really well. When Team India plays, right now they are playing for the World Cup, everyone’s an Indian playing over there, whether he is from South or North of India. If Kantara is doing really well or KGF 2 or Vikram, we should seek inspiration from these films and try and work with each other. It’s the best thing for Indian films to grow right now,” Varun Dhawan said.
The actor further expressed his desire to work with top south directors like SS Rajamouli, S Shankar, and Lokesh Kanagaraj. “If Lokesh Kanagraj offered me a role, that’s the director of Vikram and Kaithi, then 100 percent I would love to do a Tamil film with him. If Rajamouli or Shankar offers you why will you not,” said the star.
