Varun insists he holds star in high regard despite his issues with daddy Dhawan
In an interview with hitlist (David didn't stand by me, February 11), Govinda had alleged his former bestie, filmmaker David Dhawan turned his back on him when his chips were down. The inevitable topic popped up when we caught up with Varun Dhawan during the promotions of his next, Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
Ask him if he felt hurt by Govinda's remarks, he says, "This isn't really my place to talk. My father is currently in London, recceing for Judwaa 2 and he should respond to this. Govinda sir is years senior to me. I hold him in high regard. [But] To each his own. I won't comment if he was wrong. I won't let my true feelings on the issue come out."
The actor admits he has grown up watching his father's films starring Govinda and Salman Khan. "It (his comments) doesn't affect the fact that I like his work. I am a fanboy forever."
The actor, who plans to take a month off after Badrinath's release, says he's being careful to not imitate Salman Khan in the sequel to Judwaa (1997). "I will do it differently," he says.
