Varun Dhawan may have managed to maintain a balance between commercial and off-beat films, but the Bollywood actor says trying something new still scares him.

The actor, who is gearing up for the release of October, says desire to become a better performer makes him overcome his fears.
“Performing on heights and do something new is always a bit scary but then I just go back to why I wanted to be an actor and I overcome it,” Varun said.
The 30-year-old actor had two major hits -- Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa in 2017 and before the year ends he is planning to make some difficult career choices.

“It’s been great really wonderful with the success been trying to make some tough decisions before the year ends,” he said.
Varun Dhawan, who made his Bollywood debut with an out-and-out commercial film Student of the Year and has experimented with a serious avatar in Badlapur and in the upcoming October, says he is not open to the idea of being typecast.“I do not want to be typecast,” Varun told IANS.

“Whether it’s going to be a Hindi film, a commercial film, an art film, or whatever... Whatever role I do should entertain people and that’s what I set out to do. As a person, I cannot stay on one movie for very long and if I do a very serious film, I need to do a comedy film. So I get into another film which is like October, offering a different tone and talking about different kind of love,” the 30-year-old added in an email interview.

Varun’s last few films, including Judwaa 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania did good business at the box office. How does he maintain his calm when a film either becomes a hit or a flop.

“Once the film releases, I am the happiest. I am the happiest while shooting the films and even during the marketing of the film. When the film releases, people talk about it and put you on a high and you enjoy that phase, but it’s not only about that.

“It is not about receiving a place. I mean I obviously want people to like it and enjoy the film and I hope that the filmmaker’s dream and his vision and message can reach people,” said Varun, who is the youngest Bollywood celebrity to have a wax figure at Hong Kong’s Madame Tussauds. October will hit the screens on April 13.
