The trailer of Dinesh Vijan and Maddock Films’ horror comedy Bhediya is out. The eagerly awaited film stars Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in the lead role. The makers launched the trailer after unveiling first-look posters. In the trailer, Varun is seen restricting himself from turning into a wolf every night. The film is expected to be entertaining and may extend the legacy of Maddock Films’ horror comedy cinematic universe.
During the trailer launch event, Varun Dhawan revealed what Amar Kaushik asked him to do in the film. Well, the director instructed him not to comedy in the Bhediya despite the film being a horror comedy. The theme of the flick is horror and the dialogue holds a humor element. However, Varun who is known to do comedy films and add his humour to the script was restricted in this Dinesh Vijan film.
Varun said, “Jab hum readings kar rahe the, tab inhone mujhse kahan tha ki aap bilkul comedy nahi karenge. Main unse punchlines maangta rehta tha but unhone kahan tha ki kuch matt kijiye varna log aapko seriously nahi leyenge. (During the reading sessions, I was clearly instructed to not do any comedy onscreen in the film. I used to request filmmaker Amar to give me some punchlines but clearly refused adding that if I do comedy no one will take me seriously in my kind of role.)”
Well, now we know the reason why Amar Kaushik refused to give Varun punchlines. The director had some genuine reasons as his character runs the film. Varun constantly turns a werewolf and delivering punchlines would not suit his character. Kaushik believed people might not take Varun seriously as the character of a werewolf.
The actor further added, “He has a very high standard of performance. In the past, he has worked with Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana who are very very fine actors. Hopefully, I have lived up to his expectations.”
Bhediya is the third installment of Dinesh Vijan’s cinematic universe. After Stree and Roohi Maddock Films are now all set for Bhediya. Helmed by Amar Kaushik the film is produced by Dinesh Vijan under Maddock Films banner. Bhediya will be howling in theaters on 25 November 2022.
