David Dhawan is a happy father, and a happier grandfather since his elder son Rohit recently became the proud father of an adorable baby girl.

“Varun must be relieved. He is no longer the baby of the family as all of us now shower all our kisses, cuddles and hugs on my grandchild,” he beams.

Despite new fatherhood, work isn’t taking a backseat for Rohit who is all set to direct his third film. Surprise, surprise - it won’t have Varun in the lead.

Explains David, “Yeh zaroori nahin hai ke Rohit ke har film  mein Varun ho. But yes, Varun will star in every film that I direct. That’s a promise I’ve made to myself. In fact, I am starting a film with Varun later this year.”

Is it a remake or an original? “I’d like it to be an original film. We’ve zeroed-in on a couple of ideas. But if these don’t work out, I will remake one of my Govinda or Salman starrers with Varun.”

David is rightly proud of what Varun has achieved. “I was bowled over by Varun’s work in October and Sui Dhaaga last year. It’s God’s blessing,” he says.

On his part, Varun has encouraged his father to become health-conscious. “Earlier I was totally uncaring. But I had a major health scare in Bangkok a few years ago, and Varun was with me. He decided he will control my diet and make sure I stay fit.”
