Coolie No 1: ‘I Am Uncool And I Don't Care,’ Says Varun Dhawan On Being Criticised For Doing A Massy Film

·2-min read

December 25, actors Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan starrer Coolie No. 1 was released on Amazon Prime Video. Soon after the release, movie buffs started reviewing the movie on social media and it was seen that they were in two minds. Some really found it entertaining and pretty massy while some criticised and trolled the film. Amidst all this, in a recent interview, the actor was asked if he aims to be a massy hero, to which he replied that the reaction of people is the most important thing for him and it is the masses that he works for.

Talking about the same, Varun told IANS that he enjoys doing mass films, "It's difficult to do and it is larger than life, and you need to have immense conviction while doing them. I enjoy it. For me, making a film is about trying to please everyone but obviously, the kind of reaction that you get from the common man is the most important thing." Varun even said that as he grew up in Juhu, opposite the beach, for him, that is his audience.

Varun further added, “I can be fake and try and be cool now because my film is on OTT. But that (the masses) is my audience and that is who I work for. Anyone who says, 'oh you are uncool because you are doing a massy film', (my reaction would be) 'Okay, I am uncool and I don't care'."
