Birthday special: Varun Dhawan’s rare and unseen pictures
Birthday boy Varun Dhawan grew up in a filmy family with father David directing blockbuster films right through his childhood, and his uncle Anil Dhawan acting in his films as well. The young turk hobnobbed with other star kids and made his way into Bollywood by assisting Karan Johar on ‘My Name Is Khan’. As Varun turns 30 today, let’s have a look at some of the actor’s unseen pictures.
Varun and his elder brother Rohit can be seen cuddling up to their mother for a perfect picture. Rohit can be seen peeping above his mother Karuna’s shoulder, while their mother happily poses for the camera with Varun clutched in her arms.
The two brothers, who have grown up to make a mark for themselves in the film industry, have always shared a close bond with each other. Rohit can be seen holding a baby Varun as the latter bears a toothless grin. In the other picture, Rohit puts an arm around an adorable little Varun at the beach. The two brothers later went on to work together in Rohit’s directorial ‘Dishoom’, with John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez and Varun headlining the cast.
Varun acted in a few product endorsements as a child actor, most prominently for a chocolate malt product. He faced the camera dressed up in a school uniform and was seen participating in an elocution contest. Varun also acted in a few more ads, thus paving the way for his future aspirations of making it big on the screen in Bollywood.
Varun Dhawan looks like an absolute nerd in this one with his huge reading glasses on and a neatly tucked-in shirt. The ‘ABCD 2’ actor looks absolutely pleased to be holding a pet pug sitting atop his lap.
Clad in nothing but a striped towel, Varun seems to be passionately showing off what he’s got at hand – a perfectly chiselled body. The ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ star proves that he’s always been a fitness enthusiast with washboard abs like that. Whether Varun’s about to do the Ranbir Kapoor act from ‘Saawariya’ with his towel, your guess is as good as ours.
