It has been a running joke for a while, that Varun Dhawan is still a kid. The actor just turned 31 earlier this week, and had a small celebration on the sets of his upcoming film Kalank. While co-star Alia Bhatt called him a ‘3 years old’ while wishing him on Twitter, the actor himself said that he just feels like he’s 16, albeit in jest. Recently the actor shared a meme which included Taimur Ali Khan.
The meme shows the two talking about Varun’s age. When Varun tells Taimur that he just turned 31, Taimur say that he thought they were the same age.
Well, it’s nice to see that the actor is so cool about the jokes, rather than getting offended by them.
Taimur, son to Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan, has already become an internet sensation, with the paparazzi following his every move. In an interview with Aaj Tak about star kids and whether they receive special treatment, the actor talked at length about the media’s obsession with Taimur. “It’s 100% unfair, I agree. But it’s not only the industry’s fault. It is the media’s fault as well. In our country, at the moment, even Taimur Ali Khan is more famous than actors. Not just media, people also share his photos on social media.”
About his birthday, he had told Hindustan Times, “To be honest, I’m absolutely cool about my birthdays, but yes, they do make me happy. I remember when I was a kid, my school friends used to come over and we’d play cricket in our building. Today, if I get time, I will play on the sets (Kalank) as well.”
Varun is currently shooting for his upcoming period drama Kalank. He will next be seen sharing the silver screen with Anushka Sharma in Sharat Katariya’s Sui Dhaaga.
