Varun Dhawan gets drunk on ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ sets

Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt have teamed up for the third time for upcoming film ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ which is a sequel to their 2014 film ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhani’. The actors are currently shooting the movie in Kota, Rajasthan.

Recently, the actor got drunk on the sets of the film to shoot for an emotional scene. It is hard enough for actors to pull off an emotional scene with conviction, so Varun decided to get slightly drunk for real and in the process downed a few neat whisky pegs.

The ‘Dishoom’ actor resorted to method acting, getting into the skin of the character and gave a good performance that was appreciated by his director, Shashank Khaitan, as well.

"Varun had a few drinks, that too neat, to prepare for the scene. The idea worked, as the scene went off well. Even the director praised his performance. Varun knew that he could not have managed such a natural performance without those drinks," Hindustan Times quoted a source as saying.

Varun is an occasional drinker and he took an hour-long nap before resuming the shoot as he was feeling tipsy after giving the emotional shot. Confirming the incident, Varun told the daily, "I had a few drinks as the scene required that kind of an effect. I was high for a while, but everything was okay."

Apparently, Varun had got drunk for shooting a similar emotional scene in the original film as well. The romantic comedy ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ was much liked by the fans and Varun and Alia shared a superb chemistry in the film. The audience are expecting to see the ‘Student of the Year’ co-stars create similar magic on the screen in ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’.

As of now, the film being produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions is slated to release on March 10, 2017.
