After our 2012 Wrap Up, Celeb in the Spotlight is back with a bang! This time around we present the well-rounded actor, assistant director, and dancer, Varun Dhawan!

Born on April 24th, 1987, Varun is the son of David and Karuna Dhawan, and the younger brother of Rohit Dhawan. He has a Business Management degree from Nottingham Trent University, UK. Being related to two Bollywood directors, many would think that Varun had an easy entry into Bollywood; however, very few know that he made his own path into Bollywood.

Working first as an assistant director on Karan Johar's My Name is Khan, Varun then went on to act in Karan Johar's recent successful film, Student of the Year, where he was greatly admired by the critics. Many of them mentioned that his dancing skills were beyond comparison to any actor. In fact, superstar Salman Khan praised Varun and said that he would be the next big sensation of Bollywood.

Varun's success didn't end with his first film. He has gone on to sign a film under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures. Rumors have it that David Dhawan will be the director of the movie, however, the details of the film and the star cast are yet to be finalized.

Did You Know?
  • Varun mentioned that he wanted to become a wrestler as a child.
  • Salman Khan recommended and praised Varun even before Student of the Year released
  • Varun is nothing like his on-screen character, Rohan, of Student of the Year. He once said that he was poles apart from Rohan and when he is treated like Rohan, he finds it weird.
BollyCurry wishes all the success to Varun in the future and is sure that he will continue to dazzle the audience and critics alike with his stellar acting and dancing skills.
