Varun Dhawan is, without a doubt, one of the biggest stars in the current lot of actors today! He has always managed to deliver hits or give a critically appreciated performance. Be it Judwaa, Sui Dhaaga or October, he has won hearts all over. But, with his latest outing, Kalank, he failed in connecting with his fans and audiences. When asked about the film’s failure in an interaction with PTI, Varun revealed that it did affect him personally but he chose to learn from it.
It affected me. The film wasn’t liked by the audience. And it deserved not to do well. It is very clear if the audience likes a film it should do well and they did not like Kalank. It is learning for me. I have processed it and learnt what I had to from it and (I am taking it in stride). Sometimes something doesn’t work and then overall things go wrong. It is for the first time I went through failure and it had to affect me.
The multi-starrer period drama, Kalank, was directed by Abhishek Varman and co-produced by Karan Johar. It was received with negative reviews from both critics and audiences alike.
If it did not affect me, it would mean I don’t love my films. I love my films to death. I am glad it affected me. Now I am in a good space. And I am excited about my next film Street Dancer and looking forward to doing Coolie No 1.
We sure are excited to see him in these films soon! He is currently working hard to get his moves right in Remo D’Souza’s Street Dancer opposite Shraddha Kapoor which is slated to hit screens on January 24 next year. Varun will also begin work on the remake of the iconic Coolie No 1 opposite Sara Ali Khan which is to be directed by his father, David Dhawan. Good luck, Varun!
