Bawaal promotions are on in full swing. The cast Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor along with director Nitesh Tiwari recently sat down with Bollywood Hungama to talk about the film taking the digital route, the importance of OTT platforms and their film as a whole. Varun Dhawan mentioned how he ended up re-watching Aamir Khan starrer Dangal and kind of scared himself about the transformation he had to undergo.EXCLUSIVE: Varun Dhawan psyched himself by re-watching Dangal after signing Bawaal: “I scared myself and then I would keep calling Nitesh Tiwari and ask, ‘What do I do?’”
Varun Dhawan said, “When I got on board eventually for Bawaal, I went back and I put on Dangal. I saw what Aamir sir has done. I scared myself and then I would keep calling sir (Nitesh Tiwari) and ask, ‘What do I do?’ He would be like ‘Ajju is little bigger and he should have muscles.’ He is a teacher but he's so much into his image that he carries that persona. So I really got into lifting heavy weights and all that time and I would keep sending him pictures till he said okay.”
He added, “But the thing was, I had psyched myself so much because like, I'd seen the transformation which Aamir sir did was wonderful. So I just kind of put that pressure on myself that I had to do it. You know, I don't know whether he was expecting.”
Then Nitesh Tiwari said, “I had to tell him at one point of time that this is good enough, because he's not really a bodybuilder. He just makes muscles just so that he can wear tight shirts, and impress people and that just shows up.”
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, and starring Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor, Bawaal is a timeless love story by Sajid Nadiadwala’s production banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment in collaboration with Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari’s Earthsky Pictures. The film will premiere on Prime Video India on July 21.
