I want to meet Gulzar saab and ask him about Angoor: Varun Dhawan
It’s no secret that Varun Dhawan will soon be seen playing a double role in his father David Dhawan’s next, Judwaa 2, a sequel to his 1997 hit Judwaa, which starred Salman Khan.
The actor says that his father “encouraged” him to watch films that had actors playing double roles, and while doing that, he saw director-writer Gulzar’s classic, Angoor (1982). Apparently, Varun was so impressed with the movie that he wants to meet Gulzar soon.
“I have been watching films that have double roles, and so, I recently saw Angoor. In fact, I have seen it twice. Now, I want to meet Gulzar saab and ask him about the film and what it was like to direct Sanjeev Kumar and Deven Varma. I want to ask him about the whole set-up, and what they were thinking of when they were making it. It’d be interesting to know the thought behind every great scene in the film,” says Varun.
Varun also feels there are many “small things” in the film that make it “extremely funny”. He says, “It would be very interesting to know how they gave birth to those ideas, and, more interestingly, how they got those ideas in the first place,” says the actor.
Varun’s last film, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, made it to the Rs 100-crore club. Ask him if he is competitive by nature, and the actor says, “There is nothing wrong with that. I am very interested to see what good films are coming up. This year, too, some really nice and entertaining films are up for release. So, I am looking forward to them.”
Varun, says that “as the audience”, he is looking forward to watch Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, Salman Khan’s Tubelight, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, as well as Hindi Medium, Meri Pyaari Bindu and Half Girlfriend. “These films are looking really cool,” he says.
