Varun Dhawan pays tribute to his idol, Micheal Jackson, in his upcoming film 'Main Tera Hero'
Varun Dhawan is an ardent fan of Michael Jackson and feels that no dance routine is complete without some characteristic moves of the King of Pop.

Accordingly, the Student of the Year actor has copied MJ’s moves in his second Bollywood outing, Main Tera Hero. In fact, the actor has imitated the icon in all four tracks of the film, which is directed by his father David Dhawan.
A unit source says, “Varun requested choreographer duo Bosco-Ceasar to include Michael Jackson’s signature moves in all the songs. They readily agreed as they are big fans of MJ as well and they wanted to pay him a tribute. Like everyone else, Varun was heavily influenced by MJ, especially whe he was a student at Shiamak Davar’s dance class.”
The source adds, “Varun made sure that MJ’s famous moves such as the moonwalk, the pelvic thrusts, crotch grabs, side slides, the anti-gravity lean and the synchronised dance moves feature prominently in the film’s songs. He wants audiences to immediately relate to the dance moves.”
Matching MJ’s steps with Varun in the film are his co-stars Nargis Fakhri and Ileana D’Cruz.
