While Shamitabh, his first job was given a U/A Certificate, the next film on the row was the Varun Dhawan starrer Badlapur which has received an A Certificate.
Initially talks were on with the makes of Badlapur for giving the film a U/A Certificate but with a few major cuts. However, the director of the film, Sriram Raghavan, put his foot down and has decided to go ahead with the A Certification since he wasn’t ready to compromise on the content of the film.
“There was a love making scene between Varun Dhawan and his on screen wife Yaami Gautam, a passionate liplock scene with Huma Qureshi, some of the violent scenes between Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui and some scenes that have some bloodshed and gore were asked to be toned down. However Sriram Raghavan did not agree to the same and thus the film was five a adult certificate.” stated our source close to the director.
Baldpaur is all about Raghu (Varun Dhawan), who sets out on a journey of revenge against the man who destroyed his family.
Badlapur, stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi, Yami Gautam, Divya Dutta and Radhika Apte besides Varun Dhawan.
“It will be a make or break year for me. I know we are underdogs but if Badlapur works then it will be entering to a 100 crore club. I just want the audience to like the film.” states Varun.
He is civilly banking on this one and has not singled a film yet. “People often compare me with Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and young Govinda. But I just want to be next me. While growing yes I have seen these actors work and somehow they have an influence on me.” adds Varun.
It will hit theatres on February 20, 2015.
