On Twitter, Varun was rebuked by some followers for apparently having said he voted in 'Rajya Sabha elections' last year. He was quick to acknowledge the mistake, explaining it away as a 'slip of the tongue':
I was wrong I meant lok sabha. My bad sorry. https://t.co/2Mm9mAEMLx— Varun Badri Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) February 21, 2017
Hahah I don't it was a slip of the tongue I meant the lok sabha elections for which I voted in 2014. https://t.co/oOkrYN8ypV— Varun Badri Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) February 21, 2017
Varun and Alia will resume publicity duties for Badrinath Ki Dulhania, which releases on March 10 and which they are promoting around the country. The film, directed by Shashank Khaitan, is a sequel to their 2014 film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and follows a similar binary of enthusiastic but gauche swain in pursuit of a reluctant love interest. Varun plays Badrinath, an unsophisticated young man who wants to marry Vaidehi, played by Alia, a feisty and confident young woman who is offended by his wedding proposal.
Varun Dhawan, star of films such as ABCD 2 and Badlapur, was last seen in the 2016 film Dishoom and is currently working on Judwaa 2, a sequel to the Nineties hit starring Salman Khan.
