Three best roles of Varun Dhawan 

Raghav from Badlapur 

Varun Dhawan's fans often compare him to yesteryear actor Govinda, because of his film choices and the infectious energy he portrays on the big screen. Reportedly, in the initial days of his career, Varun was stereotyped as a Mass Hero. A movie that helped him break the mould was Sriram Raghavan's Badlapur. The movie, starring Varun Dhawan, Yami Gautam, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Huma Qureshi in the lead is still considered to be Dhawan's best performance from his filmography.
