As reported by IndianExpress.com, when the actor was asked about the possibility of Hollywood taking over Bollywood, he said, “Hollywood will never take over Bollywood. Our Hindi film industry is original in its own sense and we have great talented people here. We will always survive. Artist will always have a voice in a country like India.
I don’t think they (Hollywood) will take over us.” When he was asked about the collections of ‘Jungle Book’ being greater than other recently-released Hindi films, he reportedly said, “‘Jungle book’ is more of an Indian story and audience connected well with it. Indian audience today wants better cinema and better visual effects. I recently saw ‘Fan’ and thought it had some amazing VFX.”
The report further stated that Varun was happy that he received accolades for his dubbed voice from Chris Evans. “I have been honest with my dubbing in Hindi. I have tried to keep the tone the same. And Chris Evans’ praise means the world to me,” the actor was quoted as saying in the report.
