Although none of the actor’s movies have done poorly at the box office, Varun was rejected for both the roles he auditioned for, prior to Student of the Year. The Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania star tried his luck for Academy Award winner Life of Pi and Aamir Khan Productions’ Dhobi Ghat.

Varun spilled the beans when he made an appearance at Jagran Cinema Summit. He also shared that his director father David Dhawan, at the time, felt that he was not ready to face the camera and therefore, decided against him working in Dhobi Ghat.

He may have lost out on two major roles however, among lead actors who have starred in four or more films, Varun is the only one within the Indian film industry to have a 100% success rate. As they say, all’s well that ends well.

Varun will next be seen in Judwaa 2 opposite Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu. Directed by his father, the film will hit the screens on September 29.
