Varun Dhawan on Remo D'Souza's Street Dancer: It is India's biggest dance musical film
Apart from Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor, Street Dancer 3D also stars Prabhudheva, Raghav Juyal, Dharmesh Yelande, Shakti Mohan, Punit Pathak, Nora Fatehi.
Varun Dhawan has managed to strike a right balance between commerce and art but the actor says he does not believe in making long-term plans about his career.
"I want to take each day as it comes. For me, the next challenge is to try and excel in everything that I do. My whole idea is that take each day as it comes and to try and win that battle.
"I don't want to try and make a five-year plan. There are certain directors I want to work with and god willing if they feel (I'm) worthy enough, I can showcase some other things as an actor," Varun told Press Trust of India.
The 32-year-old actor is currently looking forward to Street Dancer 3D, which reunites him with his ABCD 2 director Remo D'Souza.
"We wanted to do ABCD 3 but then it took time. Street Dancer is subconsciously that brand only it is about dance. It is India's biggest dance musical film. And it deals with a lot of teams. There are different teams in the film, I have my team, Shraddha Kapoor has her team, there are international teams as well. And then you see who will win at the end."
The film will introduce a number of new faces, something that Varun believes is important.
"In Street Dancer 3D there will be 20 new dancers. My idea is to introduce new talent to every film. If you are a star, you have to take the onus of introducing new talent."
The coming-of-age dance drama also stars Prabhudheva, Raghav Juyal, Dharmesh Yelande, Shakti Mohan, Punit Pathak, Nora Fatehi and others. Produced by Bhushan Kumar under T-Series, the film is slated to release on 24 January 2020.
Varun was speaking on the sidelines of season three of Breezer Vivid Shuffle, touted as India's hip-hop dance competition. The actor on Wednesday launched the hip-hop dance festival that will take place across the country along with an international qualifier over the next three months.
He said the idea is to give a platform to underground artiste to showcase their talent, "When we had this festival for the first time two years ago we had Divine with us, Raftaar was there for the second year and this year we have Naezy, Altaf, etc.
"We have got a lot of poppers, lockers, graffiti artiste, rappers, dancers, it is all about bringing the hip-hop culture together, which is a big part of Mumbai. The idea is to get these underground artiste and giving them mainstream coverage. The street culture is massive in India today. Anywhere you go on the streets of India, there is some uniqueness."
