Wow! Varun Dhawan to don the director’s hat

Varun Dhawan is an amazing actor and has often garnered praises for his performance in films like ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, ‘Badlapur’ and many more. But now, the actor is planning to explore the genre of film-making and is looking forward to turning a director soon.

While speaking to a daily, Varun revealed how he had also written two screenplays and showed it to his filmmaker father David Dhawan and brother Rohit Dhawan, but they both weren’t impressed. (Also Read: WATCH: Varun Dhawan’s method acting while playing Badrinath will leave you in splits!)

Varun said, “I have two directors at home and take their honest opinions really seriously. Maybe these screenplays did not measure up. But I also feel that the storylines were not to their taste and style of film-making. Now I am working towards writing something far darker, the kind of film I’ve always wanted to do and I want to produce it too, maybe act in it as well.”

Varun has studied film-making and acting and also has an experience of directing and acting in about eight short films, one of which also included his good friend, Arjun Kapoor. Talking about the experience, Varun said, “I was often shooting these films on my cell phone but I don’t want to go back to doing that because I’m a 70-mm actor now and I don’t know how a short film from me will be received. Instead, I’d want to focus on a full-length feature which will work commercially and enable me to do many more films.”

Well, given his genes, we are definitely excited for his directorial venture, whenever it shapes up.
