Varun Dhawan Praises Kantara, Says Bollywood Should Take Inspiration from South Films

Varun Dhawan is in full praise of Rishab Shetty’s Kantara and also expressed a desire to work in South Cinema

Varun Dhawan is gearing up for the release of his upcoming horror comedy Bhediya. The actor who always appeared in mainstream Bollywood films expressed his wish to work in South cinema. In a recent media event, the actor shared that he is keen to star in South India Cinema. He also said that Bollywood should take lessons from films like Kantara and KGF.

In the past year, South films have created a great impact on Indian cinema and audiences. Many south films have also defeated Bollywood films in terms of global box office collection. Movies such as Pushpa: The Rise, RRR, KGF Chapter 2, and Ponniyin Selvan 1, among others, have performed brilliantly not only in the regional or Hindi belts but worldwide. 

During India Today Conclave, Varun Dhawan said, “Indian films are doing really well… If Kantara is doing really well or KGF 2 or Vikram, we should seek inspiration from these films and try and work with each other. It’s the best thing for Indian films to grow right now. I know it sounds really easy right now because the Hindi films are getting their a** kicked right now. So maybe it’s a great time and easy answer for me to say that. I have always wanted to do films in Telugu, Tamil, and Bhediya is going to release in Telugu and Tamil as well.”

The Jug Jugg Jeeyo actor highlighted that not south films are evolving but it is Indian cinema. He mentioned Bollywood actors are also appearing in southern movies that are much loved by the audience. He said, “I don’t know why people forget that KGF 2 also had Raveena Tandon and Sanjay Dutt in it. Why do you forget that as well? They are also loved over there and we also love all the actors from there.”

He further added, “I just seek inspiration… I think Allu Arjun is amazing and Yash has done great with KGF. Even now, if you see, Kantara, the way the film has been written, directed and acted by the same person, Rishab Shetty. People can divide us, but we are one country and it is a good time to be collaborative because cinema, in general, we are going through a big transition all over.”

On the work front, Varun will be next seen as a werewolf in Bhediya. Next in the pipeline, he has Bawaal with Janhvi Kapoor and a web series Citadel with Samantha Ruth Prabhu. Bhediya helmed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan under the Maddock Films banner will be howling in theaters on 25 November 2022.
