Varun Dhawan Admits South Films Are Overtaking Bollywood, Says, ‘Hindi Films Are Getting Their A*es Kicked Right Now’
Actor Varun Dhawan, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film ‘Bhediya’, admits that South films are overtaking Bollywood movies at the box office. He even feels that Hindi films should take inspiration from pan-India blockbusters like Rishab Shetty's Kantara, Yash’s KGF Chapter 2, and Kamal Haasan’s Vikram to name a few. Varun also pointed out that now audiences have reached a level where they won't accept any mediocre content.

The 35-year-old actor shared his views on the recent India Today conclave. He was quoted saying, “I know it sounds really easy right now because the Hindi films are getting their a**es 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. It's a great time for all filmmakers, technicians, and actors, everyone to come together.” ALSO READ: WHAT?

Varun, however, also asserted that Indian movies are doing really well across the world and that it's the “best thing for Indian films to grow.” On the concluding note, the Student of the Year actor stated, “The audience is not going to take any bulls**t. They are not settling for anything mediocre. So, we have to pull up our socks and give them top-of-the-line stuff and according to me, that’s the only thing that’s going to work.”

Directed by Amar Kaushik, ‘Bhediya’ also stars Kriti Sanon, Deepak Dobriyal, and Abhishek Banerjee. Varun has left no stone unturned to get into the skin of his role of 'icchhadhaari bhediya' in the horror-comedy. The film will hit theatres on November 25, 2022.
