Kolkata: 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).
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.
