Renowned filmmaker David Dhawan is celebrating his birthday today. The director’s actor-son Varun Dhawan shared a very touching video for him. The ‘Kalank’ actor shared how his father has always been his friend. He even recalled the valuable lessons taught by his father.

Sharing a video message, Varun took to his Instagram, and alongside the video, he wrote, “Happy birthday Papa!! 🎂 Thank u for teaching me to handle success and failure. Thank You for not only being my dad… but also my friend!”

In the video, Varun flipping through the family’s photo album says, “My Dad. He never fulfilled the duties of a father. When I returned home after losing a cricket match, he never slapped me. Instead, he patted me on the back and said, ‘If you don’t lose, how will you learn?”

The actor further shares, “I wanted to grow up quickly. He never tried to rein me in, but instead, sat me down and explained things to me as an equal. When I fell down, he laughed his heart out. He told me that when I fall again, the world will laugh at me, so it is time I had some practice. He never fulfilled the duties of a father…because when it came to fulfilling the responsibilities of a friend, he turned out to be my father.”

Varun even promoted Sab TV’s new show ‘Tera Yaar Hoon Main’ via his birthday post for his father.

Celebs like Dia Mirza, Nushrat Bharucha and Karisma Kapoor wished David in the comment section. Karisma who has frequently collaborated with the filmmaker, wrote, “Happy birthday to David ji”.

Whereas Dia Mirza wished the director by commenting, “Happy birthday David Uncle.”

On the work front, Varun will be next seen in his father’s directorial ‘Coolie No 1’. Sara Ali Khan will be starring opposite Varun in this reboot.
