Varun Dhawan on Kalank failure: It was a learning


“If it did not affect me, it would mean I don’t love my films. “Sometimes something doesn’t work and then overall things go wrong. And I am excited about my next film ‘Street Dancer’ and looking forward to doing ‘Coolie No 1’,” he added. Advertising

The 32-year-old actor, whose last two films October and Sui Dhaaga – Made In India received critical acclaim and did average business, said success and failure is a part of life.

Comment(s) Varun was also supposed to be a part of Shashank Khaitan’s Ranbhoomi, but he said he is completely immersed in Remo D’Souza’s Street Dancer that will hit screens on January 24. The film wasn’t liked by the audience. He will soon begin work on the remake version of Coolie No 1, to be directed by his father David Dhawan. “It affected me. It is very clear if the audience likes a film it should do well and they did not like ‘Kalank’. I am glad it affected me. And it deserved not to do well. It is a learning for me. The big budget multi-starrer, directed by Abhishek Varman, and co-produced by Karan Johar received negative reviews from both critics and audience. I have processed it and learnt what I had to from it and (I am taking it in stride),” Varun told PTI. Advertising

Ever since Varun made his debut with 2012’s Student of the Year, he has delivered 11 back-to-back hits until Kalank.
