Varun Dhawan: People say I am more like a South Indian hero, I would love to do a South film because I have never seen a distinction

In recent times, South films including BaahubaliKGFRRR, and Pushpa among others have totally blurred the language barriers and have taken Indian cinema to a global level. Many actors in the recent past have expressed their desire to do a South film. Now Thodelu actor Varun Dhawan has joined the bandwagon. 

In a candid conversation with veteran film journalist Baradwaj Rangan at Galatta Plus roundtable, Varun revealed that he is keen on doing a South film, “We released Bhediya in Telugu as Thodelu. It was released by Geetha Arts. Even at the launch, they said you are more like a South Indian hero than a North Indian hero because of your energy level and the kind of films you do. I would love to do it because I have never seen a distinction. I grew up with my father (who) in the morning would show me Tamil and Telugu films.”

He added, “Given the opportunity, I would love to work there. There are brilliant filmmakers who are on my bucket list. I know it will happen. I don’t know how, but I know it will happen. It’s a plan.”

During the interaction, he heaped praises on Lokesh Kanagaraj’s directorial ‘Kaithi’ (Khaidi in Telugu) and also appreciated the lead actor Karthi for his mind-blowing performance. “When I saw Kaithi, I was so inspired by his (Karthi) work, which I told him in person… and by Lokesh sir’s work. I was blown away by the way the character was written, and the climax was conceived.”

Filmmaker Karan Johar who was also a part of the roundtable said that “Varun was dying to do a film in the south. He will go to Hyderabad or Chennai and live there.” PS1 actor Karthi, another participant in the roundtable, also concurred with the opinion and remarked, “He (Varun) has already mentioned his interest and work there.”

On the work front, the actor will be next seen in Raj and DK directorial ‘Citadel’ co-starring Samantha.
