It’s that year when our three biggest Khans of Bollywood- Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir are going to turn 50 years old (Aamir already has turned 50!). And that’s when the light of realization strikes- WHO NEXT? Who would take up their mantle? Who would be able to make the girls swoon with his charm, and would capture the hearts of the masses and classes alike? Even though they say the “superstar” era comes to an end with these three Khans, we have found one actor who has been proving his worth in this industry and may end up being the next big thing in the next 10- 15 years! And it looks like his journey to become the next big thing has already started…
He made his debut exactly 3 years back, with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’; and within such a less time the young actor has managed to become a household name! With big brands and directors running behind him, to the girls running behind him to get selfies clicked…he truly has been making it large.
And one of the biggest years in his career has been 2015. Yes, this year undoubtedly belongs to Varun Dhawan; and here’s why…
1. Proved his acting mettle with ‘Badlapur’:
With ‘Badlapur’, he proved that he just isn’t a cute and young face who can dance well and do comedy and romantic roles with ease. His matured, angry and powerful Raghu is a role that would be remembered for years to come…
2. First 100 Crore Movie – ‘ABCD 2’:
Dhawan gave the dance film a face- his face! His splendid and energetic performance along with power-packed dancing skills ensured that the young actor makes his entry into the 100 Crore Club!
3. First 200 Crore Movie – ‘Dilwale’:
It is his talent to entertain the audiences that gave him the ticket to work in ‘Dilwale’ which is being made by the biggest director Rohit Shetty and also has the biggest superstar Shah Rukh Khan! And given the huge star-cast apart from the stardom of Dhawan, it is a much-known fact that the movie is a sure-shot 200 Crore Club movie!
4. Fresh Pairings:
It is his charm and persona that makes him look good with every woman! Be it the matured romance with Divya Dutta or the energetic and adorable pairing with Shraddha Kapoor. And if the pictures from the sets of ‘Dilwale’ are to be believed, then his pairing with Kriti would be a delight to watch.
5. Shooting for his first action flick:
‘Dishoom’ marks his venture into an out-and-out action flick, where one hears that his chemistry with John Abraham would be worth-watching.
And yeh toh bas shuruaat hai…after all this Punjabi munda, who has been proving to everyone that he is a kukkad kamaal da, has a long way to go!
Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, we even love you and are curiously waiting for you to rock an entire year, just the way Varun did!
