Actor Varun Dhawan says that Hollywood should not be a benchmark for success in the Indian film industry, and that our industry should not ape them, but retain our culture.

At the launch of the Filmfare cover featuring him, here on Monday, Varun said, “I don’t think it should be a benchmark; it’s wrong. We are Indians, we have our own culture, we have our own standard. Obviously, there are so many things they do better than us, there are lot of things that we do better than them as well.”

“We have our own style. Technology-wise and VFX-wise, they are quite ahead and we should get inspired. But I don’t think we need to ape them. We have our own storytelling styles and methods and where song and dance is concerned, that is a part of Indian culture, part of Indian movies and I believe that should stay,” the actor added.

About Indian stars doing blink-and-miss roles in Hollywood, Varun said, “I think if an actor is really big over here, somewhere we have a responsibility to our fans, so we should do films where we could impact that film more, and the role has more meat as a performer and I think Priyanka and Deepika are really big, actresses, brilliant actors and they are really making us proud.
