Making his acting debut in what looks like a typical Bollywood confection, the Student Of The Year newbie Varun Dhawan says he’s eying darker, edgier cinema.
His father David Dhawan is known for making comedies and he himself is making his debut with candyfloss romance, but Varun Dhawan relates more with darker cinema and would love to be part of scripts like Dev D and Shaitaan.
"I would like to do more darker, edgier and realistic films. I liked 'Kahaani', 'Dev D', and 'Shaitan'. It's an art to do romantic films also, but given a chance I would love to do darker films. I want to do something different and not what everyone is doing," said Varun Dhawan. He is making his foray in showbiz with Karan Johar's Student Of The Year that will also introduce Alia Bhatt and model Siddharth Malhotra to filmdom.
This youngster is well aware of the problems plaguing the nation and advocates that burning issues should get prominence in film scripts.
"I like dark cinema. I feel issues like naxalism and terrorism should be seen in cinema. I feel that it will be great if cinema can give solutions to this. Even if a film gives a moral message, I will definitely do it," he added.
