I had to visit psychiatrist after working on Badlapur: Varun Dhawan
Actor Varun Dhawan on Sunday said that there was a time when he was leaning towards gritty cinema and would have done anything in his power to be launched by Anurag Kashyap. The actor was speaking at an in-conversation session Dha-One, moderated by writer Rumi Jaffery, with his father, filmmaker David Dhawan, at the ongoing International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here. His Badlapur director Sriram Raghavan and IFFI Indian Panorama chairperson Rahul Rawail were part of the audience.
“Initially my leaning was always towards the left side. I had loved Black Friday, Sriram’s films… I was leaning over there. I would have probably given my right hand at that time to be launched by Anurag Kashyap. Honestly,” Varun said. To this David said, Thank God. Varun said when he told his father that he was doing Badlapur, the veteran filmmaker received the news negatively.
