In a recent interview to IANS, Varun Sharma said, "The seed of acting got into me because of Baazigar. My mother knows that very well. She was emotional when she got to know that I am sharing screen space with the man who inspires me (Shahrukh) and whom I respect as an idol. It's a great feeling for any mother.''
Varun Sharma further added, "When I got the confirmation, I told her that I got an offer working in Rohit Shetty's film along with Shahrukh Khan, Kajol and Varun Dhawan. And there was a two-minute silence. I knew there were so many things going on in her mind that time. I took her blessings. I think I made her a little bit proud.''
