Varun Dhawan has been busy over the last two years. While the actor is currently promoting his upcoming film, which hits the theatres next week, he has his third release already lined up for December this year. At a time, when most actors like to take up limited number of films, Varun prefers to keep himself busy.

“I feel if an opportunity comes your way, you should not let it go. I’ve been blessed to get the kind of films I have done. I had Badlapur (it released earlier this year), and my next is a dance film. So, it’s as diverse as it can get,” says the actor, adding that he likes to experiment because he doesn’t want to “bore the audience”. “As an actor, overexposure can affect you negatively if you keep repeating yourself. But thankfully, my films are really different from each other,” adds Varun.

While the actor is enjoyinghis current phase professionally, he regrets not being able to spend enough time with his family. “My parents are my world. But with the amount of work I have right now, I have not been able to spend enough time with them. That does trouble me a bit. But all I’m looking at doing now is to ensure that my parents have a comfortable life, because they have worked very hard to give that kind of a life to my brother (Rohit Dhawan; director) and me,” says Varun.

The actor adds that he wishes to send his parents on a holiday, but he can’t. “My father never takes anything from us (both the sons). He refuses to take any gift, so it’s quite a task,” explains Varun, who also wants to take a break and go on a vacation, but apparently, “doesn’t have the time”.

While he is excited about his upcoming film, Varun says that Badlapur is closest to his heart. “It will always be the most special film for me, as it got me a lot of acclaim. Many people called it a game-changer for me,” says the actor, adding that unlike Badlapur, which was an A-rated movie, he would want his next to reach a wider audience.

“I like to see the audience’s face when they await my films. Over the last few days, I have seen how excited people are about my next. Sadly, Badlapur was an A-rated film, so it had a very limited reach. But, I want to make sure that my next reaches everyone, even people in smaller cities,” says Varun.
