‘An actor can't evolve if he limits himself as a performer’

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

His filmography consists of both, commercial pot-boilers and content-driven films and Varun Dhawan says he has always tried to strike a balance between the two spaces as he does not believe in limiting himself as an actor. Varun, who will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar's romantic drama "October", says he does not follow any rule book for success and his aim is to stay as diverse as possible in his choice of roles.

"There is no rule. You should not limit yourself as an actor. I sometimes feel like doing this or that or sometimes nothing. We have moods, feelings and I am trying to live life. I am a cinema lover, I love watching different kinds of films. It is not a conscious decision, I have been like this forever. There is no growth, if you do not try out different things. You will not evolve," Varun told PTI.

The first teaser of the film was released recently and the 30-year-old actor says the fact that the film is not a "cliched love story" excited him about the offer. "We are not trying to break any stereotypes. Our film is not a cliched love story, it is done to an extent. Now we are trying to show something new. The story is close to Shoojit's heart. The writing is so beautiful that I jumped in.''

The actor says the experience of working on the project was so enriching for him that he wishes to reunite with Sircar soon. "The beautiful thing even after doing this film is that he is still on my wish-list. I want to work with him again and again. There is always a message in his films. This film too has one, which Subconsciously I wanted to say to people, but never knew how to. Sometimes, things are right in front of you and we never learn from it," Varun says. "October" is set to release on April 13.
