The recently held Filmfare Awards 2015 was all about celebrating the excellent cinematic talent. The evening also served as a platform to the actors’ fraternity to get together to let their hair down and party! Apart from tickling the funny bones of audiences, the celebs too had their own fun.
Young actors Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor and Varun Dhawan were seen sitting together in the front row and going by talks of our khabri, looks like they were really enjoying each other’s company. From getting goofy pictures clicked to catching up about life and stuff, these three made the most of it from getting a break from hectic work schedules and enjoying it with the people from their fraternity.
The Fault In Our Stars was originally a best-selling book written by John Green in 2012 that was adapted into an English film by the same name in 2014.
The English film went on to becoming a big grosser at the box office. The original film is about a young girl who is a cancer patient, who is forced by her parents to attend a support group, where she subsequently meets and falls in love with a young boy, who has also suffered from cancer. We were the first to tell you that a Hindi adaptation of this film was being made and that Homi Adajania would be directing it.
We have now exclusively learnt that Varun Dhawan and Deepika Padukone have given their consent to be a part of the film. We also learnt that while the story will remain of two youngsters, who are terminally ill patients of cancer who fall in love, the USP of the Hindi adaptation will be the humour with which this heavy subject will be dealt with. Both the actors would need to drop a few years of age in terms of their looks and will start shooting it in March 2015.
Well, all we can say is, that we eagerly await this collision of love with cancer with this interesting casting.
Tonight’s episode of The Anupam Kher Show – Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai, which airs at 8pm on Colors, will see David Dhawan and Varun Dhawan talking about what makes their bond truly special.
Most people don’t know that David had dreamed of being an actor. However, after seeing actors like Satish Shah and Rakesh Bedi at the Film and Television Institute, he decided to take up editing. He says, “I had a lot of fun editing, it helped me become a director. Editor matlab kuch bhi ho sakta hai – kidhar se bhi kaat sakte ho with no rules involved. I thought it would be easier to direct movies.”
David says he shares the tales of his struggles with his son to keep him rooted. Varun agrees, saying, “Dad’s stories inspire me a lot, and I believe every word he says, because he is a man of principle.”
Varun reveals how his father has never raised a hand on him. “He has threatened (to slap) me, but has never done it. I remember when we got a new computer, I removed the spacebar button in excitement. My mother started yelling, while my brother hit me. My father got up to slap me, and then he stopped,” the young actor reveals.
Varun Dhawan considers his father David Dhawan, who directed the young actor in “Main Tera Hero”, as his true “hero”.
“Happy bday dad u are my #hero. Also, as a gift to my father I shall be shaving of my beard #followthebeard,” the “Student Of The Year” actor posted on Twitter on his father’s 59th birthday Saturday.
The movie will have SRK in the lead, but he denies media reports saying Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan will also be a part of it. He states, “I may need two boys on board with SRK. However, I’m still writing the film and I have not given a narration to either Arjun or Varun, so it is unfair to use their names.”
Rohit adds, “Arjun and Varun are my boys. I knew Arjun’s mother, Monaji, personally. Also, I have high regard for David Dhawan, Varun’s dad. I will definitely work with these boys and hopefully, they will agree to work with me (laughs), but I have not finalised them for my film with Shah Rukh. Once my final draft is ready, Shah Rukh and I will take a call on the remaining cast. Till then, everything you hear is mere speculation.”
