After his show-stealing turn as a new-age Govinda in his father David Dhawan's Main Tera Hero and a very Amol Palekar – like boy next-door character in his next film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, Varun Dhawan goes straight into Sriram Raghavan's untitled film where the actor would be required to play a character several decades older than his biological age.
Speaking of this daunting challenge that awaits him Varun says, "In Sriram Raghavan's film I've what may probably be the most challenging role that I'd ever do in my career. I know I've just started out. But Sriram's film gives me a very complex character to play. I can guarantee you this would be the toughest role I'd get to play for a very long time."
While the dedicated, utterly focused actor is not allowed to say any more about his role in Sriram Raghavan's film, one has come to know that Varun would require enormous prosthetic support to play the older version of his character.
Says a source, "Sriram is currently experimenting with various looks for Varun's character. The idea is to make him look convincing as a 60-year old without drastically revising his looks or body language."
