Varun Dhawan does a takeoff on Shah Rukh, Hrithik, Govinda & Prabhu Dheva
Not too many know this but Varun Dhawan is a terrific mimic. In ABCD 2 we will see this talent of Varun’s in most unexpected ways. He will be doing takeoffs on four of his idols in ABCD 2, and that too for a totally improvised scene.
Over to a very reliable source from the film’s team who says, “There is a sequence in ABCD 2 where Varun Dhawan is trying to impress his dance guru Prabhu Dheva. The scene was written as straightforward impress-the-teacher routine. But Varun decided to make it lively and exciting. He decided to dance like his favourite actors.”
Apparently, the whole improvisation started with Varun Dhawan suggesting to the choreographer – director Remo D’Souza that he would dance like Shah Rukh Khan.
Says the source, “Varun has been shooting with Shah Rukh for Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale and is deeply impressed by King Khan. Varun suggested he’d dance like SRK to impress his guru Prabhu Dheva. Then Varun decided to extend the scene to incorporate the dance styles of his other dancing idols Hrithik Roshan and Varun’s dad’s one-time favourite actor Govinda. Finally, Varun broke in a Prabhu Dheva jig right in front of Prabhu.”
Laughing over the crazy sequence Remo says, “It’s a nice homage scene in the film.”
Adds Varun Dhawan, “It was something that I did impromptu, on the spur of the moment. Remo sir just gave me the brief that I had to impress Prabhu Dheva’s character so I decided to try different styles of actors dancing; to impress him, including Prabhu sir’s style! Remo Sir loves improvisations so there are various small things like this that I have done in ABCD 2“.
