Mumbai: His father David Dhawan is known for making comedies and he himself is making his debut with candyfloss romance, but Varun Dhwawan relates more with darker cinema and would love to be part of scripts like ‘Dev D’ and ‘Shaitaan’.

"I would like to do more darker, edgier and realistic films. I liked `Kahaani`, `Dev D`, and `Shaitan`. It`s an art to do romantic films also, but given a chance I would love to do darker films. I want to do something different and not what everyone is doing," said Varun. He is making his foray in showbiz with Karan Johar`s ‘Student Of The Year’ that will also introduce Alia Bhatt and model Siddharth Malhotra to filmdom.

This youngster is well aware of the problems plaguing the nation and advocates that burning issues should get prominence in film scripts.

"I like dark cinema. I feel issues like naxalism and terrorism should be seen in cinema. I feel that it will be great if cinema can give solutions to this. Even if a film gives a moral message, I will definitely do it," he added.

‘Student of the Year’ will release Oct 19.
