David Dhawan on directing son Varun Dhawan’s kissing scenes: ‘What is there to feel embarrassment about?’ – bollywood



Filmmaker David Dhawan has directed his son Varun Dhawan in three movies now — Main Tera Hero, Judwaa 2 and the most recent, Coolie No 1. David used to be among the preferred filmmakers of the 90s, churning out one rom-com hit after another such as Raja Babu, Saajan Chale Sasural, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan and more. On the other hand, in the new millennium, the definition of romance has changed dramatically and kissing scenes are an inescapable requirement. Thankfully for David, he doesn’t shy absent from including them in his films, despite the fact that it requires directing his own son for it.

In a recent interview, David used to be asked approximately the kissing scenes he had to movie with Varun. He said it not a difficult task as they had a professional attitude while filming it.


“There used to be nothing difficult approximately it because we are very professional people. When I am shooting with him, I don’t look at him or ask him if we must do this or not. I tell him that this is to be done. The script demands a kissing scene and so we need to do it. Virtually, there is nothing incorrect. Kissing scene is the lightest scene in the Indian films at the present time. It’s very reasonable if you find yourself doing it professionally, you don’t look left, correct, centre. ‘Arre yaar mera beta karra hai, sharam aarai hai. Kaae ki sharam aarai hai? (Oh no, my son is doing it, I feel so embarrassed. What are you embarrassed approximately?) There is not any such object. It’s all practical today. Now how the hero and the heroine do it is up to them,” he said in an interview to Bollywood Hungama.

In an earlier interview with Hindustan Times, David and Varun had talked approximately their equation as co-workers. David had said, “I treat Varun like I treat any other actor, relatively a little worse. I’ve never treated him like my son or like a hero. Whether he does a naughty shot, I reprimand him in front of everyone. But he’s so good with improvisations. In the first movie, he used to be a little nervous but he used to be still doing it polite, but in Judwaa 2, he used to be he used to be full on — a total commercial hero.” Varun had added, “And that’s the type of relationship I wish to share with each and every director. I’m very egocentric in terms of my films. My endeavour is to take a look at to push myself with the intention to entertain the audience. Working with dad is an extremely satisfying experience for me creatively. Also, he pushes me and makes me think.”
