David Dhawan wants his children to take the "legacy" forward
The entire Dhawan family has decided to set aside its other commitments to focus on the younger Dhawan scion Varunís debut next month.
Never known to be exceedingly religious David and his wife flew to Rishikesh on Wednesday to pray for Varunís film.
Describing the trip David said, ďWe had gone to do aarti in Rishikesh. Iíve never prayed for my own career. But when it comes to oneís children oneís attitude to everything from God and destiny to luck and good fortune, changes.Ē
David also let out that he is next planning a post-launch film for his son. Though he is unwilling to reveal any details at the moment we understand that Davidís elder son Rohit Dawan will direct Varun in a home production which is currently being planned on a war footing and would be announced after the release of Varunís debut film Student Of The Year on 19 October.
All David wants to say on this subject at the moment is, ďWe are definitely doing something with Varun. My elder son is now a director and my younger son will hopefully make a mark as an actor when Karan Joharís film releases.Ē
Like any anxious parents, David Dhawan and his wife are eager to see what their son has done in his first job-venture. David, unfortunately, has not seen a single glimpse of his son Varunís camera-presence.
Trying to make light of it David shared, ďI made it a point never to visit Varun on the sets. Or to ask Karan to show me any portion of the film. Like everyone else all my wife and I have seen of our son is what has come in the first trailer. It was a very proud moment for us.Ē
David added that there is no possibility of his sonís film being shown to him before the first formal preview for family members of the cast and crew. ďAnd thatís the way it should be. Karan Johar is a very capable filmmaker. I donít want spoil Varunís debut by judging him like a father or a director. As far as Iím concerned weíre happy to just be there for him. For the next two months weíre all there for Varun in whatever capacity he needs us.Ē
David ruled out the possibility of directing Varunís post-debut project. ďI think itís time for me to take it easy for a while. Let my sons carry the legacy forward.Ē
