This is not a news to anyone that Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are very close friends but here is the proof that their friendship is genuine.
Varun Dhawan is currently promoting his upcoming movie, ‘Sui Dhaaga’ along with Anushka Sharma. Recently their interview on Film Companion came out and the actors were talking about the pay parity in the industry. While discussing about the struggles and the issues, varun spoke about how Alia should take more risks in terms of her fees. Dhawan also jokingly said how out of his 10 films, 4 are with Alia only. It is amazing to see their camaraderie both on and off screen.
Varun Dhawan really cares about the letting the actors get their due and in attempt to address the issue of pay disparity, the actor said, “Why has it taken the trade and the industry as a whole until a Raazi to realise that Alia Bhatt is a big star. Be it Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and even 2 States were all hits and Alia Bhatt was just as responsible for it’s success as I was or Arjun was (Arjun Kapoor was the male lead in 2 States).”
He then went on to say that, “I would always tell Alia, what are you doing? You take very little money. Are you stupid? Increase your price.”
Mr. Dhawan, Kudos to your awareness and kudos to the way you think. Though this should be a normal thought process but since not many stars acknowledge other counterparts. Thus, Applause for you!
On the work front, Varun Dhawan is coming out with his next movie ‘Sui Dhaaga: Made in India’ along with Anushka Sharma. Directed by Sharat Katariya, the film will release on September 28, 2018.
