varun dhawan and salman khan

Actor Varun Dhawan, who will be seen in the sequel of 1997 Salman Khan starrer ‘Judwaa’, shared an interesting incident from his childhood days.

During the making of the film, Varun was only 7-years-old and he addressed Salman Khan as “uncle” which angered Salman Khan and he actually wanted to slap him. Varun said to a leading daily, “I went for trial (show of ‘Judwaa’) and I called him Salman uncle he got very upset. He told me ‘I will slap you if you call me that, call me Salman bhai. I don’t care if you are David Dhawan’s son I won’t allow you inside theatre if you call me uncle.” (ALSO READ: ‘Judwaa 2’ First Look: Varun Dhawan is ready with the double dose of entertainment)

He also spoke about comparisons with the original ‘Judwaa’ actor, Salman Khan. He added, “I am not thinking about it you all keep reminding me. As an actor I do films for audience. When I do a film I don’t think about I will become this or that or my price will hike as an actor I will get ad I don’t think all this. Eventually audience should like your film.”
