Varun Dhawan encourages youth to ‘follow their own style’

Mumbai: He may be a fashion icon for many of his fans but actor Varun Dhawan says youngsters need to believe in their own style and be confident about themselves.

The 28-year-old “Dilwale” actor, who recently visited a college for a promotional event, was shocked when a fan refused to get clicked with him because she felt she was not stylish enough.

Varun took to Twitter to express his concern.

“Met some sweet fans here but realised one girl refused to get clicked because she felt she wasn’t stylish enough near her friends… Got me thinking is social pressure on people now days getting too much to be a certain way and behave a certain way,” he wrote.

“Why would a wonderful girl say ‘I don’t look good & stylish enough to be in the same photo as you?’ Not able to get over it,” he added.

The “Badlapur” actor posted series of tweets urging youth to follow their own style.

“Want to encourage every youngster to respect & follow their own style. When you believe in your own style you inspire others,” Varun tweeted.

The actor will next be seen in his brother Rohit Dhawan’s directorial venture “Dishoom.”

Also starring Jacqueline Fernandez and John Abraham in pivotal roles, the film will hit the theatres on July 29.
