Actor Varun Dhawan who is shooting in Jaipur for ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’, recently showed up on the sets after gulping down a few pegs. The actor did this so that he could bring in more authenticity to his performance.
Varun, was apparently asked to act intoxicated for an emotional shot, for which he drank ‘neat’ pegs of whiskey. This method acting job by Varun says a lot about his seriousness.
Revealing more details about the scene, an insider reportedly told a leading daily that the way Varun enacted this scene impressed the director Shashank Khaitan. Since Varun knew that he could give his best only after he got drunk, he did this.

The 29-year old actor is known to be an occasional drinker, staying away from alcohol if it is not for parties. After giving his shot, a ‘high’ Varun slept for around an hour.
When Varun was contacted by the daily to learn if this report is true, he confirmed the news. He said that he had a few drinks because the script demanded it.
“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 was quoted by the daily.
‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’ is currently being shot in Jaipur and Kota (Rajasthan). The movie features Alia Bhatt opposite Varun. Produced under Dharma Productions, this is the second instalment of the franchisee which began with the 2014 release ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’.
Interestingly, for an emotional scene in ‘Humpty Sharma KI Dulhaniya’, Varun had got drunk before also.
The movie will release on 10th March 2017.
