Varun Dhawan on 'Kalank': It deserved not to do well

Varun Dhawan was a superstar right after his debut film Student of the Year got released in 2012. Since then he has delivered back-to-back hits like Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, ABCD 2, Dilwale and Judwaa 2.

However, his command over the box-office came to a halt with Kalank, his first commercial failure.

Opening up about it, he said, "it deserved not to do well."


"Film wasn't liked by the audience. It affected me"

Kalank's performance was indeed abysmal, as the period drama even failed to recover its own budget of Rs. 150 crore.

"It affected me. The film wasn't liked by the audience. And it deserved not to do well. It is very clear if the audience likes a film it should do well and they did not like Kalank," Varun said in an interview.


For the first time I went through a failure: Varun

"Sometimes something doesn't work and then overall things go wrong. It is for the first time I went through a failure and it had to affect me. If it did not affect me, it would mean I don't love my films. I love my films to death," Varun said.

For Varun, the film's failure could bring a major shift in his future projects.
