Director David Dhawan has teamed up with his actor son Varun for the first time in Main Tera Hero.
He says that the film has not only strengthened their bond, but Varun also saved his life during a shoot in Bangkok, Thailand.
“Directing Varun has brought us closer. During a schedule in Bangkok when I was ill, I could sense Varun’s panic,” said the director. “I had taken a fall in Bangkok and was taking medicine for the injuries. I made the mistake of having the medicines on an empty stomach. The medicines reacted and I passed out. My son saved my life that day.”
Main Tera Hero pairs Varun with Nargis Fakhri and Ileana D’Cruz. The movie is out in the UAE.
