David Dhawan has given some of the hit movies like Coolie No.1, Hero No.1, Judwaa, Raja Babu among others in his career. His son, Varun Dhawan worked with him in three films-Main Tera Hero, Judwaa 2 and Coolie No.1. Earlier, at an event, while recalling his early days of being directed by his father, Varun said, “There was a stand kept with a ball and he said: ‘this is Anupam Kher, now act’. And I was wondering if this was for real. Then he shouted, ‘Do it!’. I said, ‘Anupam is a human being, why have you put the tennis ball here?’ He said, ‘if you can’t act with a tennis ball, you cannot act’. I was scared and wondered which method of acting this is. Then I realised that it’s the David Dhawan method of acting.”

Karisma Kapoor who has worked in so many blockbuster movies with David Dhawan also wished him on social media. She posted a throwback picture of herself with him and Salman Khan and wrote, “Happy Birthday Davidji”.

On the work front, Varun Dhawan will be seen in Bhediya and Jug Jugg Jeeyo.
