Speaking to news agency IANS, Varun Dhawan praised Ganesh Acharya and said that he has played an important role in his life.
"Masterji (Ganesh) has been biggest part of my life. I know him since my childhood. I have grown up in front of him, so I am a bit emotional launching his film's song. Many choreographers choreograph songs from their mind, but he is the only person who choreographs songs from his heart," IANS quoted the Badlapur actor as saying.
"In this song as well, I could see each artiste dancing in the song with full passion and not for promotion of the film as it was all coming from within them. He has massive faith on Ganapati and that is the reason I know his film and his team will be successful," he added.
Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan have worked with Ganesh Acharya in Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
The Udta Punjab actress told IANS that Ganesh Acharya is a 'master of his craft.'
"Masterji (Ganesh) is definitely a master of his craft as he is a master of expression, dance and heart. I have just started knowing him... Varun and I have both worked with him in 'Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya' and at that moment, I just thought that I should absorb and grab his talent in terms of expression, dance and everything," IANS quoted Alia as saying.
Ganesh Acharya told IANS that he is 'happy' that Varun and Alia agreed to launch the Ganpati song from his film.
"I am really happy that my Ganapati song has been launched by Varun and Alia. We have worked very hard for the film. We are not looking this film as Hindi or Marathi as we have tried to raise the bar and scale of the film," IANS quoted Ganesh Acharya as saying.
Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan have co-starred in Student Of The Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. The duo will reportedly collaborate once again with Abhishek Varman's next film, titled Shiddat.
Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan is currently busy shooting for Judwaa 2, co-starring Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu. Alia Bhatt will soon begin shooting for Meghna Gulzar's Raazi along with Vicky Kaushal.
