Stardom of Khans, Akshay, Ajay hard to achieve now: Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan is enjoying the success of his latest release Badrinath Ki Dulhania. He is one of the most popular young actors in Bollywood. But Varun Dhawan believes it is hard for the new generation to achieve the kind of stardom Aamir, Salman and Shah Rukh Khan enjoy.

“The kind of stardom Salman, Shah Rukh, Aamir or even Akshay and Ajay enjoy is hard to achieve now. I feel it is partly because of the social media. The mystery is not there anymore. There is a lot of exposure. Today people don’t have patience, they move on very fast,” Varun told PTI.

The star says these days the actors have to compete not only with their Bollywood contemporaries but also with Hollywood stars. “We are not only competing with people in Bollywood. The audience today is enjoying global cinema and it makes it more difficult to make a mark. I am also trying to work very hard. Things are going well as of now, but I don’t want to take success or failure too seriously and just keep working.”

“I find it difficult to judge my growth as an actor because every time I feel I have learned something, I try to relearn and go back to the basics. I don’t want to be ‘the know-it-all’. There is no fun in it as the fun is in discovering and being raw.”

Varun also has plans to direct in future but is currently happy with the amount of work he has as an actor. “I understand the filmmaking technically. I wouldn’t rule out directing someday. But right now, my hands are full with acting and it is a hands-on profession and very difficult. My passion for acting right now is too high to look at anything else,” he says.

Talking about Judwaa 2 the actor says, “We have shot for a week for ‘Judawaa 2’ and it was easy-breezy. But it is different to be with David Dhawan on the set than at home.

“He is my father and more than that he is a renowned filmmaker. He knows his game perfectly. He is tougher on the sets. I fully get my share of scoldings and probably the most than all other actors.”

  1. Bhai badlapur jaise movie kar..tu acting kar skta h par plzz yeh rom com wagera jyda matt kara kar..

  2. Aur waise bhi khans ki jagah koi le sakta hai toh sirf ranbir kapoor aur koi nahi.....

  3. without srk king khan of clash of box office overseas and india bollywood is failure or flop not like salman solo eid and amir christmas solo.
    look srk without eid and christmas 600 million dollars
    salman eid 300 + amir christmas 300 = $600 Million sharukhan hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  4. Comment:srk is selfmade superstar more than akki he struggled more being a superstar and 2nd richest actor in the world from poor family

  5. I agree in 90's an actor could give 10 flops and be still considered a star now if an actor gives 2 average grossers people say they finished

  6. Shut up @Makkiholic Jolly. Akki reinvented himself in2007 and 2016. In 90s according to box office he was ranked no 11 based on success ratio far behind Sunny Ajay Shah Sally and Aamir.
    WTF why did he not call Hrithik? Varun is a fool. He is jealous of Hritjik.

  7. Good boy at least he knows who is Baaps are. Someone say Akki Ajay are bigger than Khan in 90s very true. Ajay Akki combo in Suhaag trashed AAA. I remember that era Akshay was marvelous with his Urban songs and handsome look while Ajay was a mass favorite actor always termed by media and even Jaya B the Next Amitabh the Angry young man. His Hairstyle was fashion back then with his Martial art same with Superstar AKki . Comedy is more difficult than Action but who would have imagine the 2 biggest Action Superstars who no one could believe from being the most Natural Martial artists to be the current owners Of the 2 biggest and successful comedy Series in Bollywood cinema.
    Permit me to add this link in remembering the men that sent AAA starcasts back home with Suhaag. Old memories


  8. These Varun sucks. Calling Ajay and Akki and not calling Hrithik makes this article so boring!!

  9. :hrithik is nt a contemprory actor with khans and akki and ajay thats it,the r all ruling since 20-25 years hrithik came in 2000 after

  10. Aamir khaan ne khud ek interview me agree kiya h....
