Mumbai, Feb 8 (IANS) Actor Varun Dhawan has rubbished rumours that he has been offered a role in Rohit Shetty’s remake of “Ram Lakhan”.
“For the record, I have never been offered ‘Ram Lakhan’. Rohit Shetty has always been one of my favourite director… I had such a good time doing ‘Dilwale’ with Rohit sir and sincerely hope I get a chance to work with again,” Varun posted on Twitter.
There were rumours that Varun rejected the “Ram Lakhan” remake because “Dilwale” didn’t do well. But clearly as per Varun, that’s not the case.
When Shabana Azmi felt like a ‘worm’
