Varun Dhawan, an actor who is most known for his mainstream Bollywood films, stated in an interview that he is interested in acting in South Indian movies. The actor recommended that Bollywood look to movies like Kantara and KGF for inspiration and seek to elevate Indian cinema as a whole.
The actor will next be seen in the horror comedy Bhediya after appearing in the love drama JugJugg Jeeyo in the past. When Varun mentioned wanting to work in South cinema, he was speaking at the India Today Conclave.
“Indian films are doing incredibly well,” added Varun. If Vikram, KGF 2, or Kantara are performing well, we should take inspiration from them and strive to collaborate. Right now, it’s better for Indian cinema to expand. Given how badly Hindi movies are currently being treated, I know it sounds extremely simple right now. So perhaps this is a good moment and this is an easy response for me to say that. Bhediya will be released in both Telugu and Tamil, which is something I’ve always wanted to achieve for a movie.
Films from the Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada industries have recently performed well on both the critical and financial fronts. A number of box office records have been broken by films like Pushpa: The Rise, RRR, KGF Chapter 2, Ponniyin Selvan 1, and Vikram, among others, not just in their own states but also throughout the Hindi-speaking region.
Varun also brought up the fact that southern audiences like Bollywood performers. “I don’t see why people overlook the fact that KGF 2 also starred Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon. Why do you also overlook that? Both there and here, they are adored, as are all the actors from that country, remarked Varun.
While many individuals might split them, the actor claimed that the Indian film business operates as a single entity. “I just want to be inspired… I think Yash and KGF have done excellent things, and Allu Arjun is fantastic. You can still tell that Rishab Shetty, the film’s writer, director, and actor, is the same guy if you see Kantara.
