Heavily pregnant and yet on the job, Kareena kapoor Khan is relentless in her pursuit of excellence.Her popular talkshow What Women Want invited Varun Dhawan recently and he was as expected, full of himself, going as far as to say that in the absence of a Covid vaccine he was offering us, his ever-grateful viewership, “laughter vaccine” in Coolie No.1
Yaar, promotion ki bhi hadd hoti hai! Next the enthusiastic Dhawan may say Covid happened only so that he can entertain us with his latest film.
It was very clear that Varun loves three people the most: I me and myself. He did remember to make a passing reference to Govinda who played Coolie No 1 long before Varun, and Karisma Kapoor who happens to be the hostess’ elder sister. Both Varun and Mrs Khan wondered how Govinda and Karisma managed to do all their work so effortlessly.
That’s because they didn’t have to give 500 promotional interviews back then,nor did they have to worry about their social-media image and how to project themselves as sexy singletons even while talking about a life partner.It’s a feat, I admit.To be in a relationship and still seem single.
Varun told his hostess he would have liked to share a live-in with his lady-love. But Dad didn’t approve. Knowing David Dhawan , he would probably throw a fit to hear this . I remember him telling me that today’s generation of children don’t listen to what their parents say and do exactly what they want to do.
Watching Varun in conversation with Kareena Kapoor Khan I remembered David’s words. Varun came across as stubbornly self-willed . He even asked his hostess how many of his films she had seen. Poor Kareena! She seems to have missed Varun’s masterpieces like Main Tera Hero, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and ABCD2.
Never mind. I am sure Mrs Khan will watch Coolie No 1. As she reminded Varun on her show, it is her sister’s movie and it does star her stepdaughter Sara. Saif, I can assure you will skip Coolie No 1. He doesn’t watch Hindi films and specially not the ones that star his daughter.
