Varun Dhawan will pay a dancing tribute to father David Dhawan at the upcoming Indian International Film Awards. Varun revealed that he will be dancing to Oonchi Hai Building and Tan Tana Tan, both hit numbers from the original 1997 comedy and that will also feature in the remake.
Varun, in his debut act at IIFA, will perform the songs of his filmmaker father David’s movies. The highlight of the performance is expected to be a sneak peek into the father-son’s upcoming collaboration, ‘Judwaa 2,’ reports The Indian Express. “I will be dancing to songs from my father’s films right from Swarg to Main Tera Hero to songs from Judwaa 2,” the star said a recent IIFA press conference.
Later in a media interaction, Varun was asked if it will be an all-solo performance or if the star will be accompanied by any female star. He replied, “I don’t want to say it out right now. Karan (Johar) has been giving me suggestions so let’s see. There will be a lot of surprises for sure. I will be launching ‘Oonchi Hai Building’ and with ‘Tan Tana Tan’ we have a surprise.”
‘Judwaa,’ also directed by David, starred superstar Salman Khan in the lead role. Khan will also be performing at the IIFA, so the inevitable question was asked if he will make a guest appearance in his act. “I can’t say,” answered Varun almost with a blush on his face.
Also present for IIFA promotions were Saif Ali Khan and filmmaker Karan Johar, who are set to host the upcoming edition, which will take place in New York next month. Johar, whose personal and professional association with Varun goes back a long way, shared that he is always nervous when he sees the star performing. “Whenever he performs, I get worried. Because Varun has no sense of self-control while performing or doing something. He goes mad, but that’s also what’s great about him,” Johar said.
This year’s IIFA are scheduled to take place over three days, from 13th-16th July.
