The very charming Varun Dhawan has entertained us with his amazing comic timing & romantic roles in films like STUDENT OF THE YEAR, MAIN TERA HERO & HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA. But in his upcoming film BADLAPUR, he is going to be seen in a never-seen-before avatar displaying his violent side with the rough & rugged look.
The Indian cinema has gradually changed & become meaningful & more open to showing bold content too over time, but the audience is still not open-minded to seeing bold content on-screen. When asked Varun whether sex & violence is still looked down on in our country, he said, 'Yes, it is. I think it's looked down about because a lot of films sensationalise it. In a film like BADLAPUR, we are not sensationalising it actually. If there is a kiss with Yami (Gautam), it is because she plays my wife in the film. Now, if I don't kiss my wife, then whom am I supposed to kiss? And about the kiss with Divya Dutta, you have to see in which context it comes in the film; because it is a thriller, there are reasons behind it. Otherwise, my character, Raghu, is a faithful husband. He is a normal common man.'
'And more than the film being sexual in nature, it is very sexy because of the way it has been shot, it's very smooth. It is sexy in the way they have shot me walking in the rain and all. Otherwise, there is no vulgarity, titillating or much violence in the film. I's the theme that's probably hardcore.' he futher added.

When asked Varun how confident is he about the film he said, 'I am confident that it is a good film with a new subject and it is very cinematic. It is not a run-of-the-mill film where I am going out there and dancing and jumping. I can't do that with this film as I don't get the opportunity only. But, somewhere down the line, with the song 'Jee Karda' becoming popular, there is an emotional connect the audience has with the film. People are liking what they are seeing, so we are hopeful, fingers crossed.'
Also starring Yami Gautam, Huma Qureshi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Divya Dutta, Radhika Apte, Vinay Pathak & others, BADLAPUR is directed by Sriram Raghavan & produced by Dinesh Vijan & Sunil Lulla. The film will release on 20th February, 2015.
