Film-maker David Dhawan, who has come a long way in showbiz, says he is extremely proud of his son Varun Dhawan and it is now payback time with his entry into Bollywood.

“It is payback time, I would say, with Varun’s entry into showbiz. After working so hard in Bollywood, I am glad the industry has accepted my son too,” David said. “It’s the initial stage and the way they have welcomed him — there’s been nothing like it. I am extremely proud of Varun at the moment.”

Varun, who made his entry into Bollywood with Karan Johar’s movie Student Of The Year, was widely accepted by the audiences for his performance.

David is presently busy promoting his film Chashme Baddoor, a remake of the 1981 movie, and says he has not touched the soul of the film.

“Whatever I could, I have done and made some changes and kept the soul of the film. I haven’t removed the soul of the film and kept it entertaining,” David said.

Chashme Baddoor features actors Ali Zafar, Siddharth and Taapsee Pannu, among others. The original film, on the other hand, starred actors Farooq Sheikh and Deepti Naval.

David is a known film director in Bollywood and has specialised in comedy over the years. Most of his films have featured actors such as Govinda, Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor in lead roles. And now his son, Varun, is ready to make his place in the film industry.
