  • Varun Dhawan with his parents David Dhawan and Karuna Chopra

    Talking about his family, Varun Dhawan had told mid-day, "I feel lucky to be born and brought up in a family associated with films. As a child, I remember always wanting to entertain everyone around me, I loved being the centre of attention. Since then, it was a secret desire to be a part of the entertainment industry, as an actor, singer or dance. So it makes me happy to be accepted as a part of the fraternity. I also feel happy for those who make it big in films without a filmy background or connections. We all have to work hard to get our due success."
