Popular television actor Abhishek Bajaj says he drew inspiration from the character of Badri, played by Varun Dhawan in the film "Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya", for a show.
Abhishek will play Mahi in &TV's latest offering "Bitti Businesswali".
"My look and the character are quite similar to Varun's Badri image that he played in the movie. Our show is based out of Allahabad and I deck up in kurtas with jeans and a waistcoat.
"The look will somewhat remind you of Badri. Both the characters are from Uttar Pradesh and have a certain accent which is very relatable," Abhishek said in a statement.
The actor spoke to his friends who hail from UP to get the body language right.
On the work front, Varun Dhawan is working on Karan Johar’s dream project ‘Kalank’ alongside Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt. He is also training day and night in the gym to get in shape for the character in his film
