It looks like Varun Dhawan has always been a hit with the ladies. Did you know that his ABCD 2 co-star Shraddha Kapoor used to have the biggest crush on him?
Their fathers, David Dhawan and Shakti Kapoor, have worked together in several hits including Raja Babu, Coolie No 1 and Judwaa. As children, Varun and Shraddha would often accompany their fathers on their outdoor shoots. It was during one such schedule that Shraddha decided to confess her feelings for Varun.
Shraddha revealed to a leading daily in 2015, “I was only eight, and I had a crush on Varun. So, I thought I should just tell him. I decided to say ‘I love you’ backwards. So, I told Varun that I am saying a sentence backwards, and he must listen carefully. Then I said ‘You – love – I’. I think it was too complicated for a little boy to understand because he gave me a stern ‘No’, and just ran away from there.”
Of course, Varun and Shraddha share a great camaraderie now, and this has become a running joke between them. In fact, Shraddha remembered this incident while filming a romantic song with Varun in the US and just could not stop laughing.
Recently, Varun and Shraddha collaborated once again for a special number, High-Rated Gabru, for Remo D’Souza’s production Nawabzaade.
