Is Varun Dhawan the biggest copycat in Bollywood?

Varun seems to have taken a lot of “inspiration” from not one but three actors for his upcoming film, Main Tera Hero

Varun Dhawan, who made a fantastic debut in Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year, is all set for his second film, Main Tera Hero (MTH), which will hit the theatres on April 4. However, after watching the trailer, songs and all the dialogue promos of the film, it won’t be wrong to say that the Dhawan boy is imitating not one, but three Bollywood stars which includes Govinda, Ranbir Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan.

You might be impressed with Varun’s herogiri in the promos of Main Tera Hero, but it so reminds us of Govinda. Right from the dance steps to all the nautanki he does to woo his co-stars, Nargis Fakhri and Ileana D’Cruz, we certainly see a lot of Govinda in Varun. However, it will be wrong to blame only Varun for that. After all, his father David Dhawan who has directed MTH has worked with Govinda so many times. We think that even if it would have been someone else other than Varun in the film, we would see some traits of ChiChi in him.

But then the makers of the film didn’t just stop at Govinda. One of the songs from the film titled Palat has become really popular amongst the masses. The tune of the song however bears a very familiar taste to it, and has made the audiences wonder, where the familiarity came from. The tune of Palat has quite been influenced by RD Burman’s track Jahan Teri yeh nazar hain starring the legend Amitabh Bachchan. Ah, well!

And last but not the least, the Dhawan boy has also spoofed Katrina Kaif’s alleged boyfriend, Ranbir. The makers of the film released a song titled Bhajan on the dance floor some days back is a parody of Ranboo’s popular song Badtameez Dil from his blockbuster film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

Well, all of this makes us wonder if we will get to see something original from Varun in Main Tera Hero, or will he just turn out to be a mimic. What do you think, BollywoodLifers?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    The English language is difficult. But using strong language such as ” it won’t be wrong to say that the Dhawan boy…” There are so many grammatical and contextual errors with this sentence. Here are a few: Always spell the words out rather than using hyphens, do not use the word ‘that’ as it is futile, referring to someone as ‘boy’ is completely incorrect, and, finally, using the word ‘wrong’ makes it sound as though you are attempting to make a very strong statement but you are using colloquial language which automatically makes your sentence sound unconvincing and indicates a lack of mastery over the English language. My point: The next time you decide to criticize someone, make sure your delivery is without errors or you will just come across as comic relief, at your own expense. Also, I hope the word ‘even’ is no longer used to start a sentence because no one in North America nor any other Anglo-Saxon country would ever start a sentence that way. It is improper.

    Not sure why Varun is being singled out here; i can still understand if this article was about his Dad. Besides, Bollywood & originality anyways do not go hand-in-hand (very few exceptions).
