Varun Dhawan: I should not be compared with Hrithik
Varun Dhawan, known for his brilliant dance moves, says he is too "new" to fall into the league of Bollywood's best dancers.

Varun, 28, who will be next seen in Remo D'Souza's 'ABCD 2', said Hrithik Roshan has been his inspiration behind taking up dance seriously.
"I am new. I don't even think my name should be mentioned in the league of Bollywood's best dancers like Mithun Chakraborty, Govinda and Hrithik Roshan.
"In terms of dancing, Hrithik is an inspiration to our generation. He is brilliant at what he does. That's his style.
My style is different too. So, we should carry on with our own style and don't compare," Varun told reporters during the promotion of 'ABCD 2' here.
The 'Badlapur' star feels it is good that people are comparing the upcoming film, a sequel to the 2013 film 'ABCD', with Hollywood's 'Step Up'.
"'Step Up' is 'ABCD 2' of America. Honestly, the comparison even happened with the first film. But let the audience decide what it feels. It's flattering that you are comparing us to one of the best dance films," he said.
'ABCD 2' is the story about real life struggles of couple of choreographers, who went on to win the World Hip-Hop dance championship.
"Dance is the real star of the film. We rehearsed six months for the dance in the movie. At least physically, thishas been the toughest film for me because I had to get in the best shape to play a dancer. We play Indias's finest dancers in the film," he said.
Also starring Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhudheva, Dharmesh Yelande, Punit Pathak and Lauren Gottlieb, "ABCD 2" will hit theatres this Friday.
