For the first time in his entire career, David Dhawan has decided to go serious as a filmmaker. In what could possibly be a radical career turn-around, David now plans to do a serious (read: non-comedy) film with his son in the lead.

This change in heart came after the director saw his son Varun Dhawan’s work in Shoojit Sircar’s October.

Says David, admiringly, “I can’t believe the work that my son is doing. When I look at the work he’s doing right now, I forget about everything I’ve done so far. Varun is not afraid of failure. He doesn’t follow any formula, nor does he adhere to any set pattern. I need to also move away from the set formula, find an adventurous route. He tells me it’s very liberating. I must try it.”

David promises to get together with Varun to do something “entirely unexpected, even shocking.”

Says the prolific director, “If Varun can fall so comfortably into my formula in Judwaa 2, I can just as easily move away from the formula to create something completely unexpected with Varun.”
