Karan Johar is Varun Dhawan’s mentor and is launching him in showbiz with Student Of The Year. The newcomer is so confident about his ‘guru’ that he is ready to do anything for him.
“Karan is like a guru to me. Whatever I have learned is from him. I have a personal relationship with him. If he asks me to do something, I will do it. I trust him blindly,” said Varun.
Currently in the midst of promotions for SOTY, the 24-year-old worked as assistant director to Johar on My Name Is Khan.
The actor says he has received offers from outside Dharma Productions as well, but it was too early to talk about them at the moment.
“I have got offers but I am not allowed to talk about it. We have a contract of three films with Dharma,” he said.
Besides Varun, Alia – Mahesh Bhatt-Soni Razdan’s daughter – and model Sidharth Malhotra are making their debut in the film that also has names like Boman Irani’s son Kayoze Irani and actress Sana Saeed, who played Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter in “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”.
Co-produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, the film is slated to release in UK cinemas on 19th October 2012.
