Actor Varun Dhawan, enjoying success of his recently released ‘Sui Dhaaga,’ has said that people took some time to realize that he is a good actor.

Varun Dhawan was interacting with media at the success meet of ‘Sui Dhaaga’ along with his co-actors Anushka Sharma, Raghuveer Yadav, Yamini Das and Sawan Tank on Friday in Mumbai.

Varun has worked in critically acclaimed films such as ‘Badlapur’ and ‘October.’ Post-Sui Dhaaga, there is a talk of him becoming a strong contender for National Film Awards for his impressive performance in the film.

Talking about audience’s changing perspective towards him over the years, Varun said, “I don’t know how to react when people talk about my work. My career has been bit funny until now.”

He said when he started off, people would call him a ‘chocolate boy’ and they didn’t talk about his acting. “They would say he is there because of his body. Now, I have entered sixth year of my career, and this year, people have talked about my performances. So, it is very encouraging for me,” he said.

“I always felt that I am a good actor, but I think it took some time for people to realize that. I am genuinely thankful to the audience because that’s what matters to me,” said the actor.

‘Sui Dhaaga’ is based on ‘Make in India’ campaign launched by the government in 2014, which was aimed at promoting the country’s indigenous industries.

Since its release, ‘Sui Dhaaga’ has managed to collect Rs.62.50 crore in India and has crossed Rs 100 crore figure combining domestic and international markets.

On the success of ‘Sui Dhaaga’, Varun said, “It’s a mixture of content and commerce. So, it feels really nice when a common man appreciate your performance. This film is a tribute to a common man.”

Kangana Ranaut feels she only raises her voice to point out “what is wrong and to take attention towards what is right”. The actress says she is willing to raise her voice for the good of the country and contribute to the nation in a larger way.

“At the moment, I am committed to films and fashion. But if time permits, I would be keen to contribute to the country in a larger way,” Kangana told in an email interview when asked about her next challenge.

“My journey has begun with Aditya Birla already to educate India to be sensitive towards environment and wear eco-friendly clothes,” added the actress, who associated with Liva to support the launch of the eco-enhanced variant of the fabric called Livaeco.

Coming from a village near Manali, Kangana Ranaut entered tinsel town with no starry connection, and went ahead to make a place for herself in Bollywood. She proved her talent and versatility with films like “Gangster”, “Woh Lamhe”, “Life In A…Metro”, “Tanu Weds Manu” and “Fashion”.

The actress says she doesn’t like it when people start judging.

“Body shaming is one such subject matter, if you talk about fashion. So yes, my need to be vocal is only to voice what is wrong and take attention towards what is right,” said the National Award-winning star.

What has she gained during this journey?

“Experience to perform better, to let go, to be fearless and take each thing in your stride, skim through struggles and perform.”

Asked about the #MeToo movement and how it impacted Bollywood, the actress — known for her straightforwardness — declined to comment.

On her association with Liva, she said: “The brand was born with me, so I feel responsible for its journey. This association has become very personal, specially because the brand is graduating to meeting fashion needs, while being sensitive to the environment.”

She feels her fashion journey has been bold.

“It started with what the screen demanded and today, as you can see, six yards is my style statement in recent times, largely because I wish to start a movement to make Indians educated about sustainable fashion — we can’t waste gallons of water to make one pair of denims or T-shirt. Fast fashion will soon result is fast destruction.”
