Varun Dhawan is surely the flavour of this season! No wonder, the Bollywood actor is making noise everywhere – TV, Twitter, Stage and even on the streets. After all, he is busy promoting his upcoming film ABCD2 which also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhu Deva.
Besides, nowadays the actor is even being compared with the superstar Salman Khan. Shocked? Well, here we tell you why Varun is being compared with Salman Khan.
Recently, he was seen running on the crowded streets of Mumbai
Well, according to a report, Varun had to rush to the airport to catch a morning flight to Jaipur where he was supposed to promote his film. However, the actor got struck in the Mumbai Traffic on the Western Express Highway. Now since he was not so far away from the domestic airport, Varun decided to get off from his car and run towards the airport. What was interesting is the fact that some of the onlookers even offered Varun their umbrellas as it was raining.
With this quick run, Varun Dhawan could finally board his plane without getting late. However, this run in the busy Mumbai street reminded people of none other than our very own Salman Khan.
He Replaced Salman Khan in Karan Johar’s Next
Buzz was that Salman Khan will star in Karan Johar’s ambitious project Shuddhi. However, although Salman Khan was initially finalized for the role, it is Varun who will now play the role in Shuddhi along with his Student of the Year co-star Alia Bhatt. Karan Johar went on Twitter to clear the air.

But Father David Dhawan Says that Varun Can Never Replace Salman Khan
After the news that Varun Dhawan has replaced Salman Khan spread like a wildfire, and people started comparing Varun with Salman Khan, his father said that Varun can never ever replace Salman Khan.
While Varun is often compared with the Bollywood Superstar, his dad who has worked with Salman Khan in Partner and Biwi No. 1 finds no similarity between them at all. The father even said that, “Varun can never replace Salman. He is a great actor and a very big star. Varun is like his younger brother and that’s why he tweeted also. Salman loves him.” Source)
So Why Did Karan Johar Prefer Varun Dhawan Over Salman Khan?
Well, looks like the decision to replace the superstar Salman Khan with the newbie Varun Dhawan has everything to do with the uncertainty around the former”s two pending court cases in the Hit and Run case.
Other sources also reveal that Salman Khan himself walked out of the project since KJo asked Salman to give him 180 days. Salman who was uncomfortable with the schedule not just walked out of the project, but even said that he can do three films in the same time frame.
This is how Varun Dhawan replaced Salman Khan…..
