Actor Varun Dhawan, who is
working in his father David Dhawan's next directorial venture,
says the latter is a taskmaster.
TV-film producer Ekta Kapoor has brought father-son
duo David and Varun together for a new project - the Hindi
remake of Telugu hit Kandireega
"It is kind of a family time. But dad is a task master
he forgets I am his son. All I can say is the film is a total
entertainer and I am hopeful audience will like it," Varun
told PTI here today.(Read: Saif Ali Khan to rope in Varun Dhawan for his next home production?
Varun has already started preparing for this film. For
the action sequences, he is learning mixed martial arts.
"I am not playing a musician, I am someone who has
musical traits. There will be some action in it. And I haven't
done anything like that before. I am looking forward to it. I
am taking mixed martial arts training for it. I am focusing
and giving my best," he said.
Varun made a successful debut with Karan Johar's
Student Of The Year
along with Siddharth Malhotra and Alia
Bhatt last year.
"One has to always do better work than their previous
film. It is essential to do something new every time. I think
everyone here motivates the other person in the industry. I do
get motivated seeing Parineeti Chopra," he said.
