Mumbai: Varun Dhawan’s ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ might be closing on 100-crores but the actor is still reeling in the flak he’s been subjected to courtesy the much talked about molestation scene in the film.

The actor who’s come in for a lot of appreciation for his commendable performance in the film, has finally taken a stand on the controversy.

 

"Out of 10, if two don't like something, that doesn't count as mass opinion. People who felt that way are entitled to their opinion, it's totally fine with me. It was supposed to be a funny scene and meant to portray how Badri's male ego is shattered. In 3 Idiots, there's a scene where a character confuses a Hindi word for `balatkar' (rape). People should have been offended by that as well. We didn't mean to hurt anyone's sentiments and if we did so unknowingly, we apologise,” Mumbai Mirror quoted him as saying.

 

The actor has also retracted on his stance on nepotism, which had also created quite a stir, when he categorically rubbished the existence of it in Bollywood.

Making his stand amply clear, Varun stated, "I definitely think if you're born into the industry you get easier access but that's about it. I have never denied that, but after that, only talent and hard work sustains you. Nobody is ready to burn money just because you have a filmi lineage. Superstars in every era have come from outside the industry and that will continue to happen because cinema is nobody's birthright."

 

The actor is currently working on father David Dhawan’s ‘Judwaa 2’ and will soon commence shoot of Shoojit Sircar’s untitled next.
