For getting into a character, you have to live the character.

Sometimes, it is difficult to make a great film, as not every actor can do full justice to the script and put it in the right emotions needed for the same.
Recently, Varun Dhawan is shooting for his upcoming film 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania' with his co-actress, Alia Bhatt in Jaipur and Kota (Rajasthan). The film is directed by Shashank Khaitan, produced under Dharma Productions. This 29-year-old actor prefers to stay away from alcohol unless it is a party. But, he asked for an emotional shot with Alia Bhatt, he gulped down neat pegs of whiskey. His performance impressed the director and he praised him for the shot. Varun knew that he could not give his best without having those pegs.
Varun quoted that, "I had a few drinks as the scene required that kind of an effect. I was high for a while, but everything was okay."
Varun and Alia, who were seen together in "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania" in 2014 have now reunited for Shashank Khaitan's new film 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania'.
The different photographs from the shoot locations and the motion posters gave us a glance of their new apotheosis in the movie.
For an emotional scene, he decided to get intoxicated with neat pegs of whiskey.
To pull out a natural performance out of him and to act as a drunkard, it was necessary for him to have those pegs. He knew this would help him to give his best shot.
The director praised him for the shot, and he did full justice to the scene.
It is not the first time that Varun was drunk on the sets, but while shooting for an emotional scene in "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania", he did the same. He being a fitness freak is an occasional drinker and usually, avoids drinking.
After completing the emotional scene, Varun felt the effects and slept for an hour or two before finishing the remaining shots for the day.
Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt will also shoot for "Shiddat" which is an Abhishek Varman's film, later in the year.
Fans have a lot of expectations from the film. We loved Alia's and Varun's chemistry in 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania', and we are hoping for the similar magical spell with 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania'.
The release date for the movie is out and it is 10th March 2017. I hope you all are as excited as I am!
