Happy Birthday Varun Dhawan: Films That Show His Versatility As An Actor


Guwahati: Varun Dhawan has time and again shown that he is a versatile actor. He made his debut in 2012 with the film Student Of The Year and managed to grab the attention even when he was with Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra.

He has been the hero of the masses since then with films like Judwaa 2, ABCD 2, Street Dancer 3D, Humpty Ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Main Tera Hero. From his career graph so far, it would seem like Varun’s ambition is to be a mass hero. However, he has given some killer performances in Badlapur, October and Sui Dhaaga.

On Varun Dhawan’s birthday, let’s have a look at his best films that proved that as much as he is the hero of the masses, he knows how to floor his fans with a powerful and intense performance.

1. Varun Dhawan Films – Badlapur (2015)

This movie can clearly be declared as one of his best performances to date. He pulled off the rough and tough look with utmost perfection on the big screen. The storyline revolves around the protagonist Raghav Purohit which was played by Varun Dhawan. His journey of vengeance on losing his loved ones overnight and turning into a brooding and dark character was brought out very well on the big screen by the actor with a lot of finesse. Both the movie and Varun got critical acclaim for their contribution.

2. Varun Dhawan Films – Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017)

Rom-coms are totally Varun Dhawan’s forte. It resonates well with his real-life personality and he lets the character unfold itself easily on screen. Badrinath Ki Dulhania had him paired opposite Alia Bhatt and these two make one of the most loved couples on-screen. Varun played the role of a love-struck boy going to the ends of the world to win over the love of his life quite convincingly.

3. Varun Dhawan Films – Sui Dhaaga (2018)

Varun’s character in this film had a brilliant blend of humour, compassion, and struggle. Anushka Sharma played the role of his wife in this film. Varun played the role of Mauji in this film, who had a blissful married life and a supportive wife who motivated him to go ahead and set up his own enterprise. Varun’s innocent portrayal of his character got him a lot of fan following.

4. Varun Dhawan Films – Street Dancer 3D (2020)

Varun Dhawan is one of the best male dancers in the industry. Right from his debut film Student of the year, we have got glimpses of his insane moves. Probably it caught Remo D’Souza’s eyes too and that is why Varun was cast in both ABCD 2 and this film. It is a dance film that had some spellbinding dance performances by the cast. Varun stole the show with his extraordinary dancing skills.

5. Varun Dhawan Films – October (2018)

This Shoojit Sircar directorial made the audience take notice of another side of Varun Dhawan. He embodied the character of Danish Wadia, a slacker whose life gets meaning after one of his colleagues meets with an accident. It is a coming of an age love story that leads to a certain kind of awakening from within. This film also marked the debut of Banita Sandhu. Varun had received an international nomination at the Melbourne Film Festival for his performance in this film.

6. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

Varun Dhawan’s character Humpty Sharma is definitely the one people would love to go back to again and again. He was a darling onscreen and managed to win hearts with his vulnerability. The film is enjoyed by all generations equally.

The actor has recently made headlines with his intimate wedding in Alibaug with long-time girlfriend Natasha Dalal.
