Varun Dhawan, who is winning applause for his character in Sriram Raghavan's 'Badlapur', revealed to a leading daily that his character is inspired from Bollywood bhai Salman Khan.
According to a leading daily, Salman Khan's character of Radhe in 'Tere Naam' inspired Varun. As far as his look is concerned, Varun has taken his brother Rohit Dhawan as the reference point.
â€œSalman Khan's character Radhe in 'Tere Naam' was an inspiration. As far as my look in Badlapur is concerned, my elder brother Rohit was a reference point. I thought to myself that when I age, I may end up looking like him. So the bearded look actually came from Rohit,â€ quoted Varun to the leading daily.
Interestingly, Salman was also impressed with Varun's acting and look in 'Badlapur' and he even tweeted about the same. Sallu praised Varun for his performance and the latter was all excited to receive compliments from our 'Dabangg Khan'!
