Varun Dhawan has always appreciated veteran actor Govinda and even imitated his style. However, recently Govinda made quite rude comments on Varun and also lashed out at David Dhawan and Karan Johar.
Govinda and David shared a good relationship in the past and have delivered a total of 17 commercially successful films together. The director-actor duo was admired for their comedy movies in the 90s.
However, the relationship between them has soured with time and veteran actor lashed out at David’s son Varun.
How can he (Varun) be like me? To become Govinda, he needs to be innocent, uneducated and a poor village boy. Varun is already a son of a director. In the last six years, he hasn’t done more than two films with his father, whereas I did 17 films with his father”, said Govinda in a recent interview with a daily.
Varun who was mum on Govinda’s comment has now finally opened up and has something to say. The “Badrinath Ki Dulhania” actor didn’t bash Govinda and in fact had something nice to say.
“There should be criticism. I learn a lot from criticism. He says there is no similarity between him and me which is right. There cannot be similarities. He is a senior actor and I respect him. I will never be able to match up to him”, Varun said.
Well, isn’t that just sweet of Varun. More respect to you junior Dhawan!
On a related note, Varun will be be seen next opooste Alia Bhatt in ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’, which is the second film in the ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ franchise, produced by Karan Johar.
