Social media has been boon for our celebrities. It has given them a platform that instantly connects them to viewers and gets all the love and admiration from them. But at the same time, they also have to face the wrath of trolls. The social media websites have given troublemakers and critical people the power to write anything to any celeb anytime.
This however has made all the emerging and younger stars thick-skinned. They have made peace with this arrangement and even take these things in their stride. This was evident last night, on September 16, 2019, when actor Varun Dhawan was having a lovely chat with his fans from his Instagram handle. This is when a user with the handle @krishbhandari140, wrote to Varun, “Neem ka patta kadva hai….Tu ek number ka b****a hai”. Varun was getting lot of questions every second but somehow, his eyes fell on this obscene message. He not only decided to respond to it, but also read it aloud. But he lowered his tone when reading the ‘b****a’ word. He smiled and exclaimed, “Krishna Bhandari! Teri mummy ko pata hai tu aisa baat karta hai? But I liked the line,” and then moved to other comments. Needless to say, this gesture by Varun Dhawan was loved by all those witnessing the chat and the respect for him went many notches higher!
The other wonderful moment of the live chat was when fellow emerging superstar Ranveer Singh messaged “Main toh bhel puri kha raha tha”, which is a song from the Govinda starrer comedy Coolie No 1, whose remake is being made with Varun in the lead along with Sara Ali Khan. Varun instantly had a wide smile on reading Ranveer’s comment and he revealed to fans that both of them used to go for sauna bath at Otters Club, located in Bandra, Mumbai, during their struggling days.
Besides Coolie No 1, Varun Dhawan’s other upcoming film is Street Dancer 3D. It reunites the actor with ABCD – Any Body Can Dance – 2 team, actress Shraddha Kapoor and director Remo Dsouza. It releases on Republic Day weekend, on January 24, 2020.
