When we saw the promo of Main Tera Hero, Varun’s ‘herogiri’ act felt like it was on the lines of Salman Khan. Reason being that Varun is demonstrating a similar boyish charm that was Salman Khan’s forte, especially in his earlier years in Bollywood. When one takes a look at the promos, it becomes very obvious that the youngster has studied Salman Khan quite carefully and adopted his body language at more than just one place.
However, there is also a different line of argument which actually involves Varun’s dad and director of MAIN TERA HERO – David Dhawan.
‘Won’t it be just fair to actually give Davidji some good credit for all the appreciation that Varun is garnering,’ questions another senior filmmaker, ‘What you say as an inspired act for Varun could rather be attributed to Davidji. After all, Salman too brought his bratty side to the fore in films like JUDWAA, BIWI NO. 1, PARTNER, MAINE PYAAR KYUN KIYA and DULHAN HUM LE JAYENGE amongst others. Isn’t it natural for Davidji to make Varun do something that he has extracted so very well out of Salman in last 15-20 years?’
