Varun-Sidharth in 'Student of the Year'

Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra have maintained that they are genuinely close friends. Dhawan has recently gone on record to say that he picked up words and mannerisms from Malhotra to incorporate into his character while shooting for Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania۪.

Yes, a lot of slang words for my character Humpty are what I۪ve picked up from Sidharth. He is a Dilli ka ladka. He may come across as too sophisticated to use colloquial lingo but when he is with close friends, he lets himself go. That۪s when the Delhi side of his personality emerges. I۪ve spent a lot of time with him and I۪ve seen that side of him. So I was able to use it for my character,۝ Dhawan told Absolute India.

In an industry where friendships do not always seem to last, this duo have been spotted hanging out together on many instances.

Both actors, who made their debut with Karan Johar۪s Student Of The Year۪ (2012), have now become strong stars in the industry, with their respective recent releases making a lot of money at the box office.
