Having made significant contributions to Bollywood with his iconic comedy films and being called the King of comedy, David Dhawan was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution over years in the industry.

Karisma Kapoor along with Varun Dhawan gave him a memorable and heartwarming tribute, by performing on some of Davidji's iconic numbers. 

In his acceptance speech, on receiving the award, while reflecting on this directorial journey, Davidji spoke about his partnership with Karisma Kapoor, which was a poignant moment, highlighting the impact they've had on the industry together.

He said, "Karisma is the only actress that I have worked with for 12 films in my career and all turned out to be blockbusters. Its been the longest association I have had with any actor". 

David Dhawan's collaboration with Karisma Kapoor has certainly been one of the highlights of his career. Together, they have delivered numerous hit films that have become synonymous with Bollywood comedy. Their partnership has produced unforgettable movies like 'Coolie No. 1,' 'Hero No. 1,' and 'Biwi No. 1,' among many others.  Their work has left an indelible mark on Bollywood and continues to be cherished by fans even today.

Meanwhile on the work front, rumours are rife that Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor are planning to join hands for a David Dhawan film. According to reports from India Today, the director of 'Main Tera Hero' is 'putting together a project for the duo.'

The official confirmation for the same is yet to come. If these reports of their collaboration are true, it will mark the fourth professional collaboration between the father-son duo after 'Main Tera Hero,' 'Judwaa 2,' and 'Coolie No. 1.' It was earlier reported by Pinkvilla that the two are planning a film that will go on floors in April 2024.

As per the reports in Pinkvilla, a source told them that "the film will have two leading ladies alongside Dhawan. Much like David Dhawan’s world of comedies, this one too will see Varun Dhawan alongside two leading ladies. The humour of this yet untitled comic caper is a result of confusion in the love life of the protagonist. Varun is very excited too to revisit the comic space after a while."
