Director Vivek Agnihotri recently revealed that Varun Dhawan backed him up when he needed it the most. The filmmaker, who made his Bollywood debut with the murder thriller Chocolate in 2005, told a leading daily that he did not anticipate anyone to come to his aid during those trying times. “I love Varun. I owe a lot to Varun.”
‘I don’t want to speak on camera, it’s between me and him. He helped me at a time when nobody in this world was helping me, and quietly. He is a great soul. I wish for him, I don’t know about stardom and all, I wish he always remains happy and very successful. He is a great boy, I love him. I am not saying this because I want to do a film with him. My eyes are also getting moist, because he had helped me at a time when I couldn’t have expected at all that a person like him would help me’, concluded Vivek.
Vivek’s comment come days after Varun Dhawan shared a review on The Kashmir Files and gave a huge thumbs up to the entire cast and crew including the director. He wrote on Instagram Stories, “One of the most hard-hitting films ever made with incredible performances. Every technician has excelled. Anupam Kher deserves all the awards. @DarshanKumaar #pallavijoshi, #mithun sir and the director @vivekagnihotri,” adding a hands-folded emoji and a bunch of thumbs-up emojis.
