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!
Oh yes, it is none other than Varun Dhawan! Let us look at the reasons why we think he is going to be the next big superstar of Bollywood!
1. 5 Films- 5 Hits!
Varun has been a part of 5 films till now- ‘Student Of The Year’, ‘Main Tera Hero’, ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, ‘Badlapur’ and ‘ABCD 2’; and all 5 of them have been hits and well-accepted by the audiences! Well, even Hrithik Roshan couldn’t achieve that feat after making the most thunderous debut ever made by anyone in Bollywood. While the success of ‘Student Of The Year’ can be credited to the director and the hype around the movie, one cannot deny Dhawan’s contribution and the impact he has made in such a little time upon the audience for the success of the other four flicks; and with a big movie like ‘Dilwale’ being his next release we are sure Dhawan Jr. enters the 200-Crore club and makes it ‘6 Films-6 Hits’ by the end of the year!
The 28 year old actor has done a variety of roles in his three-year old career so far!
In ‘Student Of The Year’, he stole the show with his acting chops despite having two more debutantes with him!
He proved one doesn’t need to be a Govinda or Salman Khan to entertain the audiences in ‘Main Tera Hero’. He was romantic and convincing enough in “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ and then, the movie with which Dhawan proved he is here to stay- ‘Badlapur’. He showed us a different side to him altogether as the aged man filled with anger and seeking revenge.
What else does one need from an actor? Entertaining, romantic, intense and ability to play any kind of roles.
We don’t say his is the best, but he is just new at the game. We are sure with more years, experience and better roles, his acting skills would get polished and would emerge as another acting gem in the industry!
3. Daddy David Dhawan:
Having a super-hit director father is always a plus point! And no actor has always had a steady run throughout his career; even megastars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have been through low career phases! And who knows, like Hrithik Roshan got a second innings at Bollywood after his father’s ‘Koi Mil Gaya’, Varun too might have a helping hand if he goes down at some point!
4. Fan Following:
With that chiseled body, young boy charm and cute Punjabi-munda looks, Varun has managed to get a great fan following, especially girls, in just three years! He is well-in-touch with the youngsters and their trends, be it going to colleges to promote his films or clicking quirky selfies with them. And going by his upcoming movies, we are sure it would keep getting bigger and better!
One of the biggest reasons why ‘ABCD2’ has got a big opening this year is because of the presence of Varun Dhawan. And the reason why Dhawan stars in the movie is because he is a great dancer. His hard work and practice for the dance sequences and his ability to convey his feelings through dance is clearly visible throughout the movie! Being a great dancer surely earns him brownie points.
In an industry where many rise with great promises and fall flat never to be seen again, it would be interesting to see if Varun actually manages to reach at the top and maintain his position! But we really wish he makes it, along with giving the audiences great movies to cherish!
