- Varun shared a story about his stage fright
- "I started talking too fast," he said
- "I just froze," he added
Carrying on which his story, the October actor said: "You come on stage and you see people like Rekha ji, Sridevi ji, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan... (You don't attend too many award shows. So, I don't think I saw you there) and I got so nervous." Seeing a bevy of Bollywood A-listers in the front row for the first time was a bit too overwhelming for Varun: "The celebrities freaked me out," he added.
So, how did Varun Dhawan deal with his stage fright? He took ideas from Elvis Presley and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, said Varun. "When I went out there next time, and I saw a lot of celebrities in front of me, I saw myself as Elvis Presley. 'Okay I'm here. I'm going to own this and this is my life and this is my identity.' And I messed that up too," said Varun. "But I messed up that also," he added as a side-note.
