Salman Bhai pulled down my pants and asked his fans to ‘Sign it’: Varun Dhawan. Since Varun Dhawan’s filmmaker father David Dhawan has made many blockbusters with Govinda and Salman Khan, the young actor, too, shares a great rapport with these two senior actors. While Govinda would often tell Varun to get into movies when he was growing up, Salman never told him so but nevertheless Varun definitely drew inspiration from the superstar known for his stardom and his crazy fan following. “Salman Bhai has hugely inspired me to become an actor although he never told me to become one,” said Varun during an interaction with him at the Mumbai Academy of Moving Images (MAMI) Movie Mela held recently.
And as Salman is known for his mischievous nature and off-screen shenanigans, Varun narrated an incident which happened when he was very young, “He would often come home and our families would get together. Girls surrounding Salman Bhai for autographs was a very common sight, we were so used to it. One day, he was narrating his experience about his fan following abroad. He was telling me that how girls ask him for autographs when he goes for his trips abroad which could be on any part of their body (Varun places his hand on various parts of his body to show that). I remember that once Bhai was as usual surrounded by many girls for autograph and I was watching him do that. All of a sudden, he just pulled my pants down and told them, ‘Sign it’. I was very young at that time,” said Varun while laughing uproariously.
