Varun Dhawan: Finding ‘yaari’ in your father is special

Mumbai– Actor Varun Dhawan finds the bond between a father and a son unique.

The son of director David Dhawan said: “The bond between a father and a son is indeed unique and finding yaari (friendship) in your father is special.”

Varun was speaking ahead of the launch of a new show titled “Tera Yaar Hoon Main”, which highlights the dynamics of the new-age father-son relationship and a father’s effort in trying to become his son’s friend.

In a 60-second video to introduce the concept, Varun takes a stroll down memory lane, recounting the various instances when his father, instead of behaving like a conventional father, chose to be a friend and a guide.

“Tera Yaar Hoon Main” premieres on August 31 on Sony SAB.

Taking to Instagram on Friday, the actress wrote: “Revisiting books is like opening up a memory box. The nostalgia, emotion and joy of it all comes rushing back to you, like it’s your first time being immersed into the writer’s universe. Today, I’m sharing with you the two books that have impacted me in more ways than one.”

One of them is “A Suitable Boy” by Vikram Seth. “It takes us on Lata’s journey: how she navigates into finding her ‘suitable boy’ in a newly independent India on the behest of her domineering mother,” Sonam wrote.

The other book is “Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer”. She described the book as “a historical fantasy novel penned by German writer Patrick Suskind”, adding that it “is the perfect horror fiction read that you want to deep dive into on a lazy day”.

She also asked her 30 million followers what their favourite fiction reads are.

“I need to get my hands on some new recommendations. Leave them for me in the comments below!” she concluded her post.
