Personal Life/Family

Varun Dhawan was born to David Dhawan and Karuna Dhawan in Mumbai, Maharashtra. He wanted to become a wrestler and was a big fan of wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Douglas Johnson (known by his ring name 'Rock'). Varun has won the Best Debut Male Award at the 19th Lion's Gold Awards (2013). He had secured 82% in 10th standard but was a average student in school. He was called Pappu by his father when he was small. He has an elder brother named Rohit Dhawan. Rohit made his debut as a director with the film 'Desi Boyz'.

In Dilwale

Dilwale is an Indian comedy-drama movie, which was directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Shetty and Gauri Khan. The movie featured the lovely pair Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon in lead roles. The film has released on 18 December 2015.


Varun was seen in Remo D'Souza's film ABCD 2 (AnyBody Can Dance) along with beautiful actress Shraddha Kapoor. ABCD 2 is the sequel of 2013 film ABCD. Varun and Prabhu Deva played the main role as Suresh and Vishnu.


If latest reports are to be believed, Varun Dhawan is dating his childhood sweetheart Natasha Dalal. The couple is in a steady relationship but the actor refuses to acknowledge his equation. Recently, the couple was spotted together on a dinner date. He said, "I honestly feel that there is nothing much to talk about. I am only meeting her for dinner - we are not doing any stunt or something. There is nothing to confirm as yet. When there is something to confirm, I will."


Varun Dhawan wanted to start his career in acting but his parents David and Lali didn't want him to join showbiz until he was sound with his education and packed him off to Manchester and got him enrolled in a course of Business Management. But when your heart pounds for some instincts, it is difficult to be stopped. And, so he left his graduation in between and went off to assist Karan Johar for 'My Name Is Khan'. Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor both were a part of Barry John's acting school. They both have appeared in a five minute short film titled 'White Mountain'.

What's the one good thing and one bad thing about your co-stars Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor?
The one good thing about them is that they both want to work with me. Also they are both good singers. The bad thing is they think they're better singers than me.

Whom would you date, marry or kill between Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra?
I'd marry Shraddha because we gel well together. It would be fun to date Priyanka. And I'll kill Deepika. She's dating Ranveer so might as well kill her.

Whose dancing skills get you envious?
Prabhudheva. I just can't compete with him.

What would you like to change about the industry?
The financial aspect , the pay structure, the marketing structure. The censorship issues. Ticket pricing. Entertainment taxes. There are so many issues that need fixing.
