Varun has been in the film industry for just four years, but none of the established award functions can overlook his talent. From a grieving, manipulative and revenge-driven man in Badlapur to the fun-loving boy-next-door in Main Tera Hero, Varun has shown the guts to experiment with his looks and characters.

He reminds us of Hero No 1 and Pyar Kiya To Darna Kiya in the same scene. His dancing is similar to Govinda while his handling of comic scenes is closer to Salman Khan. His swift moves, hilarious expressions and colourful dressing sense is a throwback to Salman and Govinda during mid ‘90s.
