He flaunted rock-solid pecs and washboard abs in his debut film, Student Of The Year (2012). He also showed off some pretty impressive dance moves. Now, Varun Dhawan, who’s got a bit of a fan following among the youth, seems to be combining his two interests — fitness and dance.

The young actor will be seen in a five-minute YouTube video, where he will be dancing in attempt to motivate his fans and have them literally follow in his footsteps. The video, choreographed by actor-dancer Remo D’souza, has been created for a health and wellness firm.

A source says, “This firm has earlier tied up with other celebrities, and Yuvraj Singh’s cricket academy. The present campaign is to motivate today’s generation. They make excuses, saying they don’t have time, have stressful lives, etc, so this is an attempt to make health interesting for them.” Varun’s dance routine will apparently be a great form of exercise, impacting core muscles of the body. “Remo says these are some of the toughest dance moves he has done,” the source adds.

Varun says, “In today’s day and age, we are all running behind capital gain, and neglect our greatest wealth, which is our health. I feel extremely proud to be a part of an event which promotes health awareness. I don’t think that you have to be in your ’40s to be health-aware. Children too should be aware about what’s good and bad for their body, so that they lead fitter and more active lives as they grow older.”

The video goes online on August 12.
