Actor Varun Dhawan says his upcoming romantic-comedy “Badrinath Ki Dulhania” is set in a world which is completely different from “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”.
The 2014 hit, starring Varun and Alia Bhatt, was a love story between a young feisty Ambala girl and a carefree Delhi boy.
The 29-year-old “Badlapur” actor says they are taking the movie ahead like a franchise but the characters are new.
“It’s a totally different world. Badrinath is a boy from Jhansi and it is about him and his ‘dulhania’ (bride) and the issues they go through. I can’t talk too much about it but its different (from Humpty). It is just the same cast, it’s a love story and we are taking it ahead,” Varun told PTI.
The actor also praised Alia and said “she has evolved tremendously as an actress.”
Meanwhile, the actor is excited for the sequel of David Dhawan’s hit comedy, “Judwaa”, which starred Salman Khan in a double role.
“It is still in the scripting stage, so by next year we should get going with that. All I will say now is ‘Judwaa 2’ is a big responsibility for me,” he said.
David, who directed the Salman-Karisma Kapoor starrer, will also direct the sequel. The father-son duo last worked together in 2014 romantic-comedy “Main Tera Hero”.
The actor will be next seen in “Dishoom”, releasing on July 29.
