While Varun Dhawan has admirers across the globe, the Bollywood actor is a self-confessed fan of WWE star-turned-actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Apparently, Varun considers the American-Canadian star as his idol. A source says that to reach out to him, Varun recorded a video, in which he imitated the popular wrestler and The Rock appreciated Varun’s gesture online. From appreciating each other’s work to exchanging birthday wishes, the two actors now share a cordial equation on Twitter.

“I recently wished him when he became a father,” says Varun, adding that now he refrains from connecting with Johnson on social media, as he doesn’t want his posts to make headlines. “I’ve stopped wishing him on public platforms. I do it differently. I don’t want people to believe that I keep messaging him. As every time I message him, it becomes news here,” he adds. Varun further says, “I am a huge fan. He is a great role model, and a very sweet person. I have bonded with him recently. Let’s see how our relationship progresses from here.”
