Mumbai, Young actor Varun Dhawan, whose fan following seems to have increased following his latest release "Main Tera Hero", wants to avoid calling himself a "star". He says that establishing a connect with the audience will always be of importance for him.
"I wouldn't call myself a star. Not now, not ever," said Varun, who made his debut with "Student Of The Year".
Excerpts from the interview:
Q. "Main Tera Hero" (MTH) is a success and you now seem to have fans in all age groups?
A. Very honestly, the hero in this film is my father David Dhawan. We promoted the film like crazy. Nowadays, the pressure's on an actor on how to market a film is excruciating. There wasn't so much pressure to promote my first film "Student Of The Year". Dharma Productions was the hero of that film and Karan Johar was there with the three of us - Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and me to promote the film. Karan made sure everything went right. With MTH, the pressure was fully on me to sell the film to the audience.
