Varun on Monday treated his fans to a question and answer session, where a user asked him to describe Salman.
“Bhai (Salman) is the best and most helpful human being,” Varun said.
When a fan complimented Varun’s work, he said he does not want to limit himself.
“Trust me I’m still me. I just won’t limit myself just because some people think that I can only do a certain type of cinema,” commented the actor, who has featured in films like Student of the Year, Badlapur and Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
Varun currently awaits the release of his latest project October, directed by Shoojit Sircar.
Asked how different October is from his other films, he said, “It’s very different. Everything was real. I was living Dan rather than playing him. If he was sad, I became sad.”
Co-produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, October celebrates love, nature and the autumn season.
Varun plays a hotel’s housekeeper who is in love with the idea of love. The girl whom he follows into the ICU of a hospital barely acknowledges him at their workplace. Yet he clings to the idea of love.
