Actor Varun Dhawan says that he hasn't been approached for Zoya Akhtar's next film "Gully Boy".

According to reports, actor Ranveer Singh, who was first approached for the film, has opted out due to date clash, and now
Varun has stepped in.

"That's not true at all. I am not doing that film," Varun said at the Star Screen Awards on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the "Dishoom" actor has completed "Badrinath Ki Dulhania", which also stars Alia Bhatt.

Speaking about the film, Varun said: "'Badrinath Ki Dulhania' is a very special film for me. I am very passionate about this
project and the film delivers a special message also, which is very important."

Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the romantic comedy is set to release on March 10.

Asked about his much-awaited film "Judwaa 2", which will also star Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu, Varun said: "I
always wanted to work with Jacqueline and Taapsee. I have worked with Jacqueline, and Tapsee is a very dear friend. I am very
excited to work with them. Taapsee was outstanding in 'Pink'. Both are very talented."

Varun also thinks that "Judwaa 2", a sequel to the 1997 Salman Khan starrer "Judwaa" is a "big responsibility" for him.

The film is directed by his father, David Dhawan.
