Priyanka and Deepika are making us proud- Varun Dhawan

Sanjukta Sen | August, 02 2016

Actor Varun Dhawan spoke about Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone who have ventured into Hollywood as lead actors.
 
“I think Priyanka and Deepika are really big actresses, they are good actors. And they are making us proud” he said at the launch of Filmfare cover.
 
Talking about the Indian stars often seen doing blink-and-miss roles in Hollywood, Varun said, "I think if an actor is really big over here, somewhere we have a responsibility to our fans, so we should do films where we could impact that film more, and the role has more meat as a performer.”
 
Asked Varun whether he is obsessed with Oscars which is another widely-discussed topic every year, replies the actor, "I am not really obsessed with Oscars. I watched it because they do the shows really well, they make it entertaining to watch. Actually I don't like it when people say that Filmfare is the Indian Oscars; I don't think it is needed."
 
"Filmfare doesn't need to have any affiliation to the Oscars, Filmfare is the Filmfare of India. That's the standard we should lay," Varun expressed.
 
The ‘Badlapur’ actor thinks Hindi Film Industry should not ape Hollywood, but retain our culture, "I don't think it should be a benchmark; it's wrong. We are Indians, we have our own culture, and we have our own standard. Obviously, there are so many things they do better than us; there are lot of things that we do better than them as well."
 
"We have our own style. Technology-wise and VFX-wise, they are quite ahead and we should get inspired. But I don't think we need to ape them. We have our own storytelling styles and methods and where song and dance is concerned, that is a part of Indian culture, part of Indian movies and I believe that should stay," the actor added.
