While talking to a leading daily, Varun Dhawan narrated an incident, when he was just 12-years-old. The junior Dhawan said that he had once accompanied his director father David Dhawan on the sets of Biwi No 1, that featured Salman Khan, Karisma Kapoor and Sushmita Sen in the leads.
Varun said that there was a shot, that took place on the San Francisco Bridge, and since it was very cold, he and his elder brother Rohit went and sat inside Salman Khan's car along with the actor. "Suddenly, Salman asked us if we want to listen to mass hysteria." Dhawan said. Then, Sallu simply stuck his feet out of the van and "that's all it took for the fans waiting to catch a glimpse of their star to go crazy". Salman's fans started screaming on top of their voices and that was the time when Varun first got the taste about how and what stardom is.
