They may be rivals on screen, but off screen Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor are best friends. They are childhood buddies and have seen each other grow through various stages in their life. In an upcoming episode of Yaaron Ki Baraat hosted by Sajid Khan and Riteish Deshmukh, they made their entry in their own quirky style both pretending to be janitors and doppelgangers of themselves.
Arjun Kapoor revealed that he was actually good friends with Varun’s elder brother, Rohit, and all three of them would hang out together. When the Half Girlfriend actor and Varun Dhawan joined Barry John’s film academy, not only did their bond become stronger, they even made their Bollywood debuts in the same year and have seven films each to their credit.
According to Arjun, Varun was the extrovert who would interact with everyone in class, especially the girls, while he was an introvert and would sit back and watch his friend charm his way into the girls’ hearts. Turns out, before the duo were propelled into stardom with leading man roles, the two jigri dosts played trees, animals and other props during their acting school days. Arjun also revealed that he had wanted to be a director and has even learnt editing while his 29-year-old friend was always the attention seeker.
