When he made his acting debut with Student Of The Year (SOTY, 2012), among other things, one facet stood out prominently – his dancing skills. Yet, Varun Dhawan was a bundle of nerves on the day of his first-ever stage performance at the Zee Cine Awards. However, he wouldn’t have thought that the person to calm his nerves would be dancing guru Prabhudeva.
Varun Dhawan is director David Dhawan's son.
Varun was very nervous while he was sitting in his room before the show. That’s when Prabhu sir walked in and wished him good luck. He told Varun about how he still gets nervous during stage performances. He even mentioned that he really liked Varun’s work in SOTY, says an eyewitness.
Of course, Varun was excited after hearing such encouraging words from a senior actor, filmmaker and dancer. The eyewitness adds, Before leaving the room, he told Varun to put all his energy into the performance and just give it his best. He also told him that he was looking forward to watching him dance on stage.
That’s not all. After the show got over, Prabhudeva even sent a message to the young actor, saying that he was thrilled by what he had seen. What’s also interesting is that a couple of days ago, Varun had presented Prabhu sir with the Best Choreographer award at another award function, says the eyewitness.
When contacted, Varun only said, It was a very sweet gesture on his (Prabhudeva’s) part. The actor has just started preparing for his next film, Main Tera Hero, which is a remake of the Telugu hit, Kandireega (2011). Produced by Ekta Kapoor and directed by his father, David Dhawan, it will go on floors by mid-year.
