Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma are busy promoting their upcoming Bollywood movie Sui Dhaaga-Made In India these days. When the actor visited the popular singing reality show Indian Idol 10, he compared contestant Salman Ali to Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.
Salman Ali, one of the top 11 contestants on the singing reality show, takes care of his large family single-handedly, and he strives to fulfil the wishes of his parents. Varun, who made an appearance on the show with his "Sui Dhaaga - Made In India" co-star Anushka Sharma, was mighty impressed by Salman Ali, as he was touched by his story of struggling to make ends meet, read a statement.
The actor then said: "Salman Ali is the Salman Khan of our music industry. His performance was absolutely incredible. I felt as if I was listening to a recording and not a live performance. It's said that when you do a film, you have to completely get into the character of the role.
"I have acted as a hero in multiple movies, but I would like to say that the real hero out here is Salman Ali who so lovingly takes care of his parents. I wish him all the happiness in the world and I am totally sure that he will reach the pinnacles of success. His parent's blessings and our good wishes are always with him."
Few days ago, the makers of Sui Dhaaga released a video telling how hard Varun Dhawan worked to step into the shoes of his character Mauji. In the video, Varun Dhawan is seen revealing how he used to work on the sewing machine for hours to get it right. He even joked that one can go blind but the thread will never enter the needle. Varun Dhawan reveals that he knew he had to master the art to convince people thathe is a real 'Masterji'. Darshan (the costume designer) and Noor bhai (the tailor on the sets) helped Varun Dhawan to learn the skill and transform into Mauji perfectly.
