Essaying a rugged looking and aggresive character in 'Badlapur' didn't come easy to Varun Dhawan, who has earlier featured in comical and romantic roles.
Watch the much-anticipated teaser of 'Badlapur' here:
His demeanour in the first look of 'Badlapur' is being appreciated by one and all, but Varun admits it was not easy for him to get into the skin of the character.
"I suffered a lot while doing this film. I can't say that I enjoyed doing the film," Varun, who has a dark character in the film, said at its teaser launch on Tuesday.
However, looking at the teaser is a comforting experience for the 27-year-old actor, who has in the past featured in films like 'Student Of The Year', 'Main Tera Hero' and 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania'.
"Whenever I see the film's teaser and I realise that I got to work with wonderful actor like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, I get emotional. It's a very emotional experience for me," added Varun, who is sharing the screen for the first time with Nawazuddin and Huma Qureshi in the film.
'Badlapur' is a revenge drama and also features Divya Dutta, Yami Gautam, Radhika Apte and Vinay Pathak. It will release early next year.
