Even as Badrinath ki Dulhaniya is on its way to the 100 crore club, the movie’s lead actor, Varun Dhawan is rushing into his next movie. “I wish there was time to celebrate, but I’m off to London for the  Judwaa 2 shoot. The celebrations will have to wait. I just want my colleagues and friends to feel happy for us.” Varun says that the Badrinath team ended up making the film it wanted. “We had no expectations as to how successful it would be. We just enjoyed doing the film. But the one person who really believed in this film was Karan Johar, our producer. He kept saying it would be a roaring hit. We wondered how he was so sure.”

Speaking of roars, Varun laughs when he’s told his entry was welcomed with many. “They like Badri, that’s why they like me. I’ve been lucky with my films and the characters I’ve played have connected with the movie goers.” Varun admits he searches for relatable characters. “Whether it’s the guy grieving for his dead wife and child in Badlapur, or the small-town guy in Badrinath, who falls head-over-heels in love, these are the people we all know.”

 

He credits his amazing chemistry with Alia Bhatt and director Shashank Khaitan for the success.  “It’s Shashank’s vision that makes the audiences fall in love with our characters. Like I said, audiences aren’t cheering me and Alia , they are cheering for our characters —  Badri and Vaidehi. If you feel Alia and my chemistry is special then it’s because of the way Shashank projected our characters. All the actors have contributed so much to the film.”
