- Varun Dhawan danced to Hawa Hawa, a song from Arjun Kapoor's Mubarakan
- You dance like Govinda sir, said one Instagram user
- Earlier this year, Govinda said Varun Dhawan 'cannot be like him'
Earlier in March, Govinda made startling allegations against Varun's father David Dhawan, who has directed Govinda in several films in the Nineties like Hero No 1, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Coolie No. 1 and Haseena Maan jayegi. Govinda alleged that David Dhawan took his idea for Chashme Baddoor and cast actor Rishi Kapoor in the role he wanted to play.
Of Varun Dhawan being compared to him, Govinda told news agency IANS: " How can he be like me? To become Govinda, he needs to be innocent, uneducated and a poor village boy. Varun is already a son of a director. In the last six years, he hasn't done more than two films with his father, whereas I did 17 films with his father."
Govinda's last film Aa Gaya Hero, which tanked at the box office released one after Varun Dhawan's Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. At that time, Govinda also alleged that Karan Johar (Varun's mentor and the film's producer) fixed the release date on purpose to harm his film's business.
Amid all the libeling and allegations, Varun Dhawan maintained that he was and will always be Govinda's fan. "I hold him in high regard. To each his own. I won't comment if he was wrong. I won't let my true feelings on the issue come out. (His comments) doesn't affect the fact that I like his work. I am a fanboy forever," Varun told mid-day.
