Happy Birthday Varun Dhawan: 8 Unknown Facts About Birthday Boy That Are Not Widely Known
While Varun Dhawan rings in his 34th birthday today, millions of his fans are pouring in their love and wishes for their Main Tera Hero star. Though his fans know a lot about him, here are 8 facts you might have not known about him. Read on! 

Varun Dhawan loves attention on his birthday. But pretends it doesn’t matter. Woe is on to anyone close to him who forgets his birthday. Or even PRETENDS to forget this historic day. Varun will not let the offender hear the end of it.

Speaking of those close to Varun, who are they? Well, he is very close to his mother Lali Dhawan. But not that close to his father David Dhawan. That’s because papa Dhawan was shooting all the time while Varun was growing up. Ghar Ghar ki Baat. Ask Ranbir. 

 Varun is also very close to his brother (filmmaker) Rohit. In fact, Varun takes no decisions, personal or professional, without consulting Bhaiyya. They teamed up for Dishoom. Rohit may again direct  Chotu Dhawan in a remake of their father David’s Shola Aur Shabnam.

Varun is no longer pals with either Arjun Kapoor or Siddharth Malhotra. The three started their careers at around the same time and would hang around together. But then professional clash of interests…etc. Today they are as fiercely competitive as Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha and Dharmendra used to be in the 1970s.  

On the personal front, Varun’s wife  Natasha Dalal remains away from the public eye. He shares a  swanky home with her which is a hop and a skip away from his parental residence.   In fact, one reason why Varun shifted home was to get private space for his marriage.   

Varun is a  big Salman Khan fan. Everyone knows Varun got to play Salman in Judwaa 2. Not many know the two have shared screen space. In David Dhawan’s Main Tera Hero Salman played the voice of Lord Hanuman with whom Varun has an ongoing dialogue. Jai ho Bajrangi Bhaijaan ki!

Though he gets along with all of them Varun’s favourite co-star is Alia Bhatt. Alia’s favourite is also Varun (much to the chagrin of a certain Mr Malhotra). Varun-Alia has done two hits films together and will be teaming up for a third shortly. 

Varun’s dream co-star is Amitabh Bachchan. Papa David Dhawan is searching for a script that would accommodate the Bachchan with Dhawan. Wait and watch.
