Varun Dhawan secretly auditioned for this Aamir Khan production but his father came to know!


The debate around nepotism has been going around for quite some time now. It is a tricky question whether a star kid has it easy on terms of entering Bollywood. But once the journey begins, it becomes to each of his own. We have plenty of examples of actors who shaped their career upon own hard work and not the legacy they’ve inherited.

Varun Dhawan, who made his big Bollywood debut under Karan Johar‘s banner with ‘Student Of The Year’, is often considered ‘privileged’. However, many do not know that Varun had secretly auditioned for Aamir Khan‘s ‘Dhobi Ghat’.

A report in DNA states how Varun admitted to have auditioned for Kiran Rao’s directorial without letting anyone know. However, his father David Dhawan somehow got a hint of it and got him out of the project. He felt his son wasn’t ready to face the camera yet.

We are quite imagining how it would be like, if Varun chose to debut with a niche film like ‘Dhobi Ghat’ and not with an out-and-out commercial film like ‘Student Of The Year‘ .
