Actor Varun Dhawan has so-far been known as the chocolate hero among the newer actors of B-town. However, Dhawan will next be seen in a very different role in Sriram Raghavan۪s Badlapur۪. The actor says the experience shooting for the film was quite intense and he had slipped into depression at one point.
It drained me. I had slipped into depression as after a point it no longer felt like I was acting in a film. The experience was that terrifying. Sriram really made me suffer. Even when the camera was off, he was shooting me. It was a reality check of a different kind because till then I had been leading a rather insulated life, both in real life and reel, the 27-year-old told Mumbai Mirror.
Directed by Sriram Raghavan, Badlapur۪ stars Dhawan alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi and Yami Gautam. The film is slated to release 20th February 2015.
