Born to David Dhawan and Karuna Dhawan, Varun Dhawan walked into our lives as a charming student, became the hero and stole the heart of every dulhania, took every Shanivaar Raati to Besharmi Ki Height and spread Ishq Wala Love as a Dilwale. Eleven years into the industry in total and nine of it as an actor, Varun had struck a chord with his audience in his journey to becoming the Hero No. 1. In 2012, Varun made his debut with the Dharma tag because he's the son of the prominent filmmaker but over these years, he has survived with his own massive fan-following and not because of the nepotism tag.
Varun Dhawan began his journey in the entertainment industry as an Assistant director to Karan Johar in the film, My Name Is Khan. Stereotyped as 'millennial Govinda', Varun proved to be a versatile actor with his role of Raghav "Raghu" Purohit in Badlapur (2015). The 2018 film, October became his career-defining work as it cemented the credibility of Varun as an actor. His commercial films like Main Tera Hero, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Dilwale, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Judwaa 2 and Coolie No. 1, proved that he's one the most bankable stars of the industry too. The mastikhor Varun made a connection with his audience with his every role and proved that though nepotism helped him enter the film industry, his talent is helping him survive and he's here to stay!
A look at Varun Dhawan's social media feed will prove that the actor loves living life, king-size! According to GQ India, the ultra-lavish possessions of Varun include 350d variant of the flagship SUV from Mercedes-Benz worth Rs 88 lakhs. According to a Times Now report, Audi Q7 worth Rs 85 lakhs is another addition to Varun's luxurious fleet of cars. Varun also owns a custom olive-green painted Royal Enfield Bullet 500 that ranges between Rs 1.8 lakhs and Rs 3.7 lakhs. Also, in his garage we can spot the quad bike, Polaris Sportsman 850 worth Rs 13 lakhs and a Harley Davidson FatBoy worth Rs 18.15 lakhs.
Adding to the ultra-lavish possessions of Varun Dhawan is his plush apartment in Juhu, Mumbai, which he had bought in 2017. A few years before his wedding with Natasha Dalal, Varun had moved out of his parents, Karuna Dhawan and David Dhawan's home when he had bought his own house. Varun had given a virtual tour to Anupam Kher of his then bachelor pad in 2017, the interiors of which were designed by his mother. According to Times Now, Varun's luxurious apartment costs approximately Rs 20 crores.
Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal's love nest includes an enviable mini gym for the fit star, plush and well-lit living room, a workstation and a bedroom with its walk-in closet with minimal interiors and a dedicated photo-wall. Varun and Natasha's home have just the right ingredients for a happy, wholesome home. As mentioned by Anupam Kher, the interiors of the house were done by Varun's mother, Karuna Dhawan. Mrs Dhawan had picked a few things from Gauri Khan's studio, Gauri Khan Designs in Juhu, Mumbai.
Varun Dhawan is not just a critically acclaimed actor but also a favourite of many brands. A few years ago, Varun became the brand ambassador for LUX Cozi. And as per the latest commercial of the brand, 21 khoobiyan wala LUX Cozi has one of the qualities to be 'Loved by Varun'! Such is the craze of this 34-year-old actor. Other than this, Varun endorses prominent brands like Navratna Cool, Coca-Cola, Frooti, Oppo, Fossil and a lot more.
With the Rs 20 crore worth house, investments in luxurious possessions, promotions, sources of incomes from films and brand endorsements, Varun Dhawan's net worth is speculated to be 29 million dollars, which is approximately Rs 216 crores. As per a Filmysiyappa report, Varun has an annual income of Rs 20 crores and his net worth is growing at a rate of 5 to 10 per cent every year.
Way before making his debut in Bollywood and stealing the hearts of millions of girls out there, Varun Dhawan had lost his heart to his schoolmate, Natasha Dalal. It was in the sixth standard when Varun had seen Natasha for the first time and while their schooling years were a foundation of their lifelong relationship, they had started dating a lot later. Finally, Varun and Natasha's lifelong love became official on January 24, 2021, when the couple had tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony in Alibaug. Dressed in an ivory and gold Manish Malhotra sherwani, Varun had complemented his bride, Natasha, who opted for a matching, intricately embroidered pale gold bridal lehenga. Varun and Natasha's first official wedding pictures had brought happy tears in their fans' eyes.
In 2019, when Natasha Dalal's fashion label was featured in a spread for Hello! India, she had spoken about how her relationship with Varun Dhawan went from being 'just friends' to girlfriend-boyfriend. Natasha had remarked, "Varun and I were in school together. We stayed friends until we were in our mid-20s and then, I remember, we started dating just before I moved away. It was around then that, I think, we realised we were more than just good friends." In an interview with the Filmfare, Varun had shed some light on his relationship with Natasha, and how it has evolved. Varun had said, "She and I went to school together. So, she knows my parents since ages. She's been attending functions with my parents before also but it wasn't photographed then. She's my rock, she's my anchor. She's the stabilising factor in my life. It's pretty much like family."
Varun Dhawan is a family man and there are no second thoughts about it as his social media feed also proves the same. Varun leaves no stone unturned to express his love and admiration for his family on social media or interviews. For instance, to mark International Women's Day 2021, Varun had celebrated the women in his life including his mother, Karuna Dhawan, his wife, Natasha Dalal, his sister-in-law, Jaanvi Desai and his niece, Niyara. Sharing the pictures with the women in his life, Varun had written, "Happy women's day. Bharatiya naari sab pe bhaari (Indian women are a formidable force). It's great that we all post pictures on social media and make this day special but the real job will be done when we actually make our country safe for women because each woman is someone's wife, mother or sister."
