Varun Dhawan, known for his brilliant dance moves, says he is too “new” to fall into the league of Bollywood’s best dancers.

Varun, 28, who can now be seen in Remo D’Souza’s ABCD 2, said Hrithik Roshan has been his inspiration behind taking up dance seriously.

“I am new. I don’t even think my name should be mentioned in the league of Bollywood’s best dancers like Mithun Chakraborty, Govinda and Hrithik Roshan. In terms of dancing, Hrithik is an inspiration to our generation. He is brilliant at what he does. That’s his style. My style is different too. So, we should carry on with our own style and not compare,” said Varun

The Badlapur star feels it is good that people are comparing ABCD2, a sequel to the 2013 film ABCD, with Hollywood’s Step Up.

“Step Up is the ABCD 2 of America. Honestly, the comparison even happened with the first film. But let the audience decide what it feels. It’s flattering that you are comparing us to one of the best dance films,” he said.

“Dance is the real star of the film. We rehearsed six months for the dance in the movie. At least physically, this has been the toughest film for me because I had to get in the best shape to play a dancer. We play Indias’s finest dancers in the film,” he said.
