Varun Dhawan says ‘Humpty Sharma….’ is a tribute to ‘Dilwale Dulhania..’


Kolkata, July 1 :

After two back-to-back hits, Varun Dhawan is looking forward to his forthcoming “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” and says the movie is a modern-day version of the 1995 cult film “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge” (DDLJ).humpty-sharma ki dulhaniya

He explained that the film showcases contemporary Indian family and is devoid of melodrama that used to dominate the screen earlier.

“It is a modern-day tribute to DDLJ… it is a modern 2014 version of DDLJ… so there’s no melodrama… today’s youth reacts very differently to authority. So, it’s not a copy… it’s a humble, small tribute,” Varun told reporters Tuesday while promoting the film here.

“This is a 2014 family film. India has progressed a lot…almost a revolution happened… the youth brought about a big change…there’s a lot of fire…lots of angst… so we are bringing out that part. So we are trying to show what a modern-day family film is…” he said.

Produced by Karan Johar, and directed by Shashank Khaitan, “Humpty Sharma…” hits theatres July 11.  (IANS)
