Log kehte hai apne dushman ko maaf kar dena chaiiye....
Main Bhi yehi Maanta Hun....
Lekin unhe tadpa tadpa ke maarne ke baad!
When the protagonist Raghav aka Varun Dhawan utters this dynamic dialogue in BADLAPUR, the audience goes bananas and the theater echoes with whistles and thunderous applause.
April 24, marks the birthday of Varun Dhawan; Raaga.Com wishes him many happy returns of the day and explores how the happy go lucky actor transformed in to the complex character of Raghav, a serial killer with such panache!
According to papa David Dhawan, the brilliant filmmaker and master of comedies, Varun Dhawan since birth has been a spoil brat and no amount of training and teaching could instill disciple in him hence when he saw Varun in BADLAPUR he was taken aback and had tears of joy in praise of his son.
Like David Dhawan even the critics had raised eye brows when filmmaker Sriram Raghavan has signed Varun Dhawan to play the intricate character of Raghav, which has multiple shades of emotions. Many hardcore critics wondered how Varun Dhawan could play the rugged and violent character of Raghav when he had been identified as an actor apt for comedies and romance. But filmmaker Sriram Raghavan was confident; he knew he could extract the actor in Varun and kudos he really did with critics rating 4 out 5 for his movie and going gaga over Varun Dhawan’s versatile performance!
So how did Sriram achieved this magic? Well Sriram in interview said, “I had tightened screws on Varun by avoiding him to stop partying and experience the trauma of isolation.”
He added, “Secondly I shared with him the anguish and the despair that I went through when my father died. Incidentally during the shooting of MAIN TERA HERO, Varun had almost lost his father hence he reminisced the same twinge and ordeal while portraying the emotionally broken Raghav in BADLAPUR.”
