David Dhawan asks son Varun to imitate Salman
Varun Dhawan who's working with dad David Dhawan on Balaji Motion Pictures' upcoming Main Tera Hero has been asked to emulate Salman Khan in his mannerisms and acting style. David has apparently asked his son to interpret the character in his own way, just like Salman does with all his roles.
David Dhawan and Salman Khan scored many blockbuster hits including Judwaa, Biwi No.1 and Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and in those films the director always gave Salman freedom and breathing space to add his own inputs to the character he was playing. Varun has been given similar instructions for Main Tera Hero.
David admits that his son will assume the spontaneous stance for the movie.
"I'm looking forward to directing Varun. But I won't over-direct him. I'm giving Varun a free hand to interpret his role how he wants. If you see Salman in my films, you'll find a lot of 'Salmanisms' in the characters. I want Varun to strive for the same kind of unrehearsed performance," said David.
David will start shooting with Varun in July. They will shoot in Ooty, Bangalore, Mumbai and then in Bangkok.
The movie has two actresses - Nargis Fakhri and Ileana D'Cruz.
"I expect them to create great chemistry with Varun," said the proud father.
Main Tera Hero is a remake of the Telugu blockbuster Kandireega, and releases next April.
