Actor Varun Dhawan is currently busy promoting his film ‘Bhediya,’ set to release on 25th November. He believes that the film is filled with epic cinematic adventure, that will enthrall the audience with its VFX.
In an interview with Times of India, Varun Dhawan talked about his journey of six months to up his fitness levels and the calm he felt while shooting in the forests of Arunachal Pradesh while shooting for his first creature comedy.
‘Bhediya’ is the third installment of producer Dinesh Vijan’s horror comedy universe, followed by ‘Stree’ (2018) and ‘Roohi’ (2021). It stars Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Deepak Dobriyal, Abhishek Banerjee, Paalin Kabak, Arnob Khan Akib, and others. ‘Stree’ star has a cameo in the film.
“I love comedy. I love it so much that I make sure every film of mine has comedy. This film has a lot of entertainment for the audience. I am not doing much comedy in it. The situation brings out the humour and makes it more exciting. I play a very different part. Like I said, I have almost two parts in the film — one of a man and the other of a wolf. I had my hands full with that, and my main job was to convince people that this transformation happens,” added Dhawan.
When asked about working with co-star Kriti Sanon and her evolution as an actor, he said, “She has had an amazing journey and has worked really hard. I think she is stepping into the best phase right now. I feel there’s a lot of good work ahead for her. Today, she’s in that position where she’s a star, and there are very few around, and she is one of them.”
“I enjoyed shooting in Arunachal Pradesh. We shot 95 percent of the film there amid all the greenery. The forest you see in the movie is real. It is such a big and important part of the film and makes the movie look authentic. When you shoot a film at a location like that, it does bring a certain sense of calm,” said Varun when asked about shooting amidst nature in Arunachal.
The music of ‘Bhediya’ is composed by Sachin-Jigar composed, while Jishnu Bhattacharjee is the director of photography. It is distributed by Jio Studios and its advance bookings are now open.
