Talented actors are a dime a dozen in B-town these days. They can dance, occasionally act and some of them can even sing. But ever so often a star comes along who seems to have arrived with a special favour from Lady Luck herself. Yes, we are talking about the very handsome, very versatile and very successful Varun Dhawan.
Born into a filmy family, Varun had a dream debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year. But it soon became clear that KJo actually saw something inside this young lag besides his pretty face. His second film itself turned out to be a solo blockbuster affair that only the Khans seem able to pull off these days. But Varun managed to carry Main Tera Hero solely on his capable shoulders and delivered a rousing hit.
Notice how different his second film was as compared to the first? Doesn’t matter, because Varun followed it up with something totally unexpected – a sweet charming little romantic flick with Alia Bhatt, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, which again performed admirably at the box office.
But 2015 was the year when the rest of the industry really sat up and took notice of Varun Dhawan. Badlapur presented us with a stronger, fiercer and much more matured Varun Dhawan. Not only was Varun showered with praises for his performance but the film went on to become one of the top ten grossers of the year. And as if we needed any further proof of his stardom, Varun danced his way to the bank with his next feature ABCD 2 that recently crossed the 100 Crore mark!
Phew! So here we have a star who is five films old with not a single flop to his credit, and every film as radically different from the last as possible. If that’s not a powerful display of potential, we don’t know what is.
With so many big films in the offing, we have a feeling Varun will soon be joining the ranks of the Khans who Khan do no wrong!
