Actor Varun Dhawan, who was at Mehboob studio on Tuesday had his fan moment when he met Sachin Tendulkar, who was shooting for an ad at the same studio. Varun is a diehard fan of Sachin and wants to keep a special screening of ‘Badrinath ki Dulhania’ for Sachin.
Varun was in the Mehboob studios to promote ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ with his on-screen Dulhania Alia Bhatt was spotted posing outside the vanity van of Tendulkar.
Like any other starstruck fan, he happily posed in front of the van and got himself clicked.
Soon after the meeting, an elated Varun returned to speak to the media and told them that he is a huge fan of Tendulkar and couldn’t resist interacting with him.
The actor gushes, “I am so glad I got to meet Sachin, because I am a huge fan of his. I spent some time with him once before during a football match and I am happy that he knows me by my name at least.”
This time round, the conversation between the cricketing sensation and the actor led to their setting up a special appointment. “This time when I met him, he asked me what film I was doing and I told him about Badrinath Ki Dulhania. He told me that he’d seen the trailer. So I offered to hold a special screening for him if he would like to watch the film. I will do it any time, if he is in town,” Varun added.
This is not the first time that the actor has met the cricketer. Ahead of the release of Dishoom (2016) which starred John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez besides him, Varun had met Tendulkar. Varun then shared an image of himself with Tendulkar and captioned it, “When Junaid Ansari (his character in Dishoom) met the god of cricket Sachin Tendulkar. It’s part of the case Dishoom diaries (sic).”
