Recently the trailer of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Badrinath ki Dulhania’ was out and needless to mention, it garnered praises from audiences and all our excitement paid off well. This movie is the second installment of the 2014 hit movie ‘Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania‘ which saw the same lead pair and was an out and out entertainer. The trailer for the second installment of the franchise was launched on February 2, and at the trailer launch, producer Karan Johar confirmed that there will be a third installment of the ‘Dulhaniya’ series and like its prequels, it too will star the superhit pair of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt and will be directed by Shashank Khaitan.
At the film’s trailer launch in Mumbai, in the presence of their mentor Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s chemistry was on point as always. Alia Bhatt looked lovely in a traditional red number and Varun Dhawan looked dapper sporting a kurta and Nehru jacket. This is the duo’s third movie together after their debut in Student of the Year and Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania. At the film’s trailer launch, director Shashank Khaitan spoke to India.com and said that though he doesn’t have a script yet for the third film of the ‘Dulhania’ franchise, but it is surely going to happen.
Speaking about Alia as a bride, Varun Dhawan said, “I think Alia will make a good bahu as she is good with parents.” However, when Alia jokingly asked him if she will make for a good wife, Varun said, “I can’t say.”
Talking about his character, Varun said, “I’m very nervous. It feels like my first film. Badri is a very special character. I consumed a lot of alcohol during the film. This film has been more emotional than other films of mine.” Alia too talked about her character in the film, as she said, “Vaidehi (her character in the film) is not a shy girl at all. She’s domesticated, she’ll make for a good bahu, like Varun mentioned earlier, but she’s not shy at all – she’s very outspoken.” Of course, Alia had another important point to make as she added, “I’m the intelligent one in the film.”
On being asked why his character is named Badrinath, Varun revealed that he loved his on-screen name as it holds a significant place in his real life. Turns out, his best friend calls him ‘Badri’ as an abbreviation of ‘brother’.
