Kriti Sanon and Varun
Dhawan – in conversation with Team Box Office
India




Box Office India (BOI): Varun, are you ready for
your sixth film?
Kriti Sanon (KS): Hit machine! Hit machine!! Hit
machine!!!
Varun Dhawan (VD): I am all set for my sixth
release but it is not about how much money these
films make but how much people genuinely like
these films. And that is the attempt with every
film.
BOI: With this film, will you be knocking it out of
the park?
VD: I hope so. After Main Tera Hero, I am getting
into comedy and along with that, there is a lot of
drama and emotion in this film. But I primarily
signed this film for the type of role I was getting to
play and the emotional connect my character has
with his elder brother. After Main Tera Hero, I have
got an opportunity to do mainstream comedy. All
of it is in Dilwale and it is full-on!
KS: It is very difficult to do comedy and it is very
difficult to make people laugh. Among the younger
generation of actors, I don’t think anyone else can
pull it off better than Varun.
VD: Honestly, it is not what I can do. Technically, I
have worked with two directors who are baaps of
this genre.
KS: Your dad… I am sure you must have learnt
something from him.
VD: I give him full credit. My dad and even Rohit
(Shetty) sir. Look at his track record in comedy .
KS: Yes, but not everyone can attempt a Govinda-
style film. I think there are very few people who
look good doing that. And Varun does.
BOI: Kriti, did you realise this after the shoot or
while shooting?
KS: I have been telling him this throughout the
shoot.
VD: Initially, she was unsure and would keep
asking me, ‘Tu aisa hi hai ya character ke liye aisa
hua?’ She finally said, ‘Nahi, tu aisa hi hai.’
KS: His character Veer is a little more cracked
than Varun is in real life. There is so much of
Varun in the character.
VD: Are you crazy? Do you really think I behave
like that in real life?
KS: Of course, you do!
VD: No, when the camera is not rolling, and I am
home alone, I don’t do this sort of thing.
KS: I have not seen you home alone.
BOI: What about you, Kriti, what was your
reaction when you were approached for this film?
KS: I was obviously very excited. First, there was
no audition. I had just one meeting and everything
was finalised. It was very exciting because I have
grown up watching Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol’s films,
and I couldn’t believe that I was getting a chance
to work with them in my second film, and that too,
a film directed by Rohit Shetty. I was also excited
to work with Varun. This film has so many
experienced and talented actors. Just watching
them performing live is a learning experience.
BOI: Varun, what was your reaction when you got
a call from Rohit sir?
VD: First, I received a call from Yunus (Sajawal)
bhai. I know him very well and he has also written
a lot of my dad’s films. So, in his typical sweet
and low-pitched voice, he said, ‘Varun, tu aisa kar
tu aaja office, apan baith lete hai ek baar aur sun
lete hai par kisi ko mat bolna.’ I told my brother
(Rohit Dhawan) about it as he is also a big Rohit
Shetty fan. He said I should go but shouldn’t tell
anyone. So I didn’t tell Karan (Johar) and I didn’t
even tell my dad. These are the two people I
usually tell first.
I loved the story and then, straightaway, I went to
Karan’s house. Karan knows just how big a fan I
am of Rohit Shetty. He is supposed to make a film
with Rohit sir after this one, and I wanted to be
cast in it. I would say, ‘Le lo, le lo, le lo,’ and he
would make fun of me. He would always say, ‘Why
should I cast you? You have to become a big star,
only then will Rohit will cast you.’ So I met Karan
and I said, ‘See, I got the film and I got it on my
own!’ So, Karan being Karan, said, ‘Do it, it is a
huge opportunity for you but be sure that you are
able to pull it off.’ I told him it was in my zone and
it was my kind of film. When I came home and told
my dad, poor Yunus bhai who talks so sweetly in a
low-pitched voice was like, ‘Haan haan haan David
ji.’ His voice rose so high as he was not supposed
to tell anyone!

BOI: Tell us about the action in the film.
VD: Kriti is the golden gun. Ask her…
BOI: What is the golden gun?
KS: There is this gun which Shah Rukh sir has in
the flashback.
VD: (Cuts in) This story you should ask Rohit sir.
KS: Please yaar…
VD: Rohit sir was showing us some action scenes
which they shot in Bulgaria. Everything was so big.
It was an outstanding sequence. The cars were
flying, there was a chase, a Mustang, a Bimmer…
all kinds of cars were getting blown up. And after
the whole sequence was over and people had
clapped and everything, Kriti says to Shah Rukh
Khan, ‘Sir, aapka woh golden gun mujhe bahut
pasand aaya’. And Shah Rukh sir looks at her and
says, ‘Tujhe aur kuch nahi aaya pasand, bas wahi
golden gun dikha?’
KS: But it was cute. I was seeing it for the first
time, the gun. So I liked it and complimented him.
In fact I told him while watching it but then there
was this eagerness inside me to tell sir (SRK). So
once it got over I told him.
VD: But Kriti has this thing which is actually a very
good quality too, perhaps, in this business; if she
feels something, she will genuinely let you know.
KS: Now let’s talk about the action. Why are you
talking about the golden gun?
VD: As for the action, I have to say it’s not
gimmicky. You will actually feel that the person
sitting in the car has actually been blown up. In the
hand-to-hand combat, you will actually think
people were hurt, because people actually were.
And people have been thrown from pillar to post,
and fallen. Hats off to Rohit sir and his entire team
for how they pulled off the action scenes. I am
very proud actually to be part of a film that has
action scenes of this caliber.
KS: What I really like about the action is that his
action is very different from Shah Rukh sir’s
action. It’s not like two people are fighting in the
same manner. There is one sequence which is my
favourite bit in the film, which is an action scene of
Shah Rukh sir’s. In the trailer you see…
VD: (Cuts In) Mill Action
KS: Yes, we call it mill action.
VD: It is outstanding.
KS: It is OUTSTANDING! It is so raw and so real,
not like he is fighting 10 goons alone and with one
punch they all are down… it’s really raw.
VD: You will see that the attitude is like Darr ka
Shah Rukh Khan. He is that gruesome in that
action. You can say it
is such serious action that you will be amazed that
the film has taken such a hardcore approach.

BOI: What was the experience like in London?
KS: Very good. I loved it. For me it was a totally
different kind of experience because it was my first
promotion in London. We went to Cineworld
Feltham…
VD: (Cuts In) BBC Studios.
KS: BBC Studios was also very good, but for me
Cineworld Feltham was the moment, because there
were so many people and so much excitement.
They had brought printouts, photographs and stuff.
They had been waiting since 10 am, which was a
long time, and in that cold weather. They were
screaming their lungs out and singing the songs
with us. They were shouting our names.
VD: For me what was shocking was that for the
first time ever, we got invited to Sky News, which
is the leading channel there, and we were
interviewed by the prime-time reporter who is like
an Arnab there. On Sky News they played Dilwale’s
trailer on prime time too, so for me not only as an
actor but also as an Indian, that was such a proud
feeling, because often our news channels play
trailers of James Bond and Mission Impossible
movies.
For our trailer to play there, and for them to wake
up and acknowledge that Shah Rukh Khan is
probably one of the biggest stars in the world… and
for that guy to introduce me as the ‘rising star of
the Indian film fraternity’. I couldn’t believe it. It
was what I had always dreamt of. To actually see it
happen was seeing proof of Shah Rukh sir’s
stardom worldwide
