Dad or brother, who’s Varun’s favourite?

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Prashant Singh

Ac­tor Varun Dhawan has worked with his fa­ther, David Dhawan (in Main Tera Hero; 2013 and is cur­rently shoot­ing for Jud­waa 2) and his el­der brother, Ro­hit Dhawan (in Dishoom; 2016). Ask him, if given an op­tion, who he would pre­fer to work with and he says, “I can’t choose. It will be very wrong for me to choose be­tween them. First of all, I think it’s wrong to compare Ro­hit with dad. But I feel, for any di­rec­tor who has made just two films, he is right up there among the best that any ac­tor can work with.”

The Badri­nakth Ki Dul­ha­nia ac­tor re­veals that he “had to ac­tu­ally beg Ro­hit” to be in his film be­cause “he re­fused to con­sider me for any of his films.” “I had to tell him that, ‘I re­ally want to work (with him) and I think we will do a good job,” says Varun, adding that the one sim­i­lar­ity that his fa­ther and brother have is that they “aren’t dif­fi­cult peo­ple” to please on the set.

“It’s just that you have to do a scene dif­fer­ently. If you do any­thing half-heart­edly, then they won’t be okay. I re­mem­ber, in Dishoom, he made me do 16 takes of an ac­tion scene wherein I had to jump over a car. Then, he also made me run mul­ti­ple times,” he says.

I can’t choose. It will be very wrong for me to choose be­tween dad and Ro­hit ... it’s wrong to compare the two VARUN DHAWAN, AC­TOR
