Mumbai: Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan feels appreciation he receives from audience amounts more than earning money and fame through films.

Before making his acting debut in 'Student of the Year', Varun had worked as assistant director for Shah Rukh Khan-starrer 'My Name is Khan', and will be seen next in 'Main Tera Hero', directed by his father David Dhawan.

"Entertaining the audience is important to me. Money and fame don't feature in my list. I love to perform. I have seen my father getting fame, money.. Even for him audience is more important than getting all these things. For me also audience appreciation is important," Varun told PTI in an interview here.

Varun said he did not view anybody as his competitor in Bollywood.

"I am not here to prove myself to any individual in the film industry. For me audience is important and their love and acceptance is essential. I will continue to entertain audience with different kind of films. I don't want to bore them by doing one kind of cinema," he said.

The projects with Varun at present are upcoming masala comedy 'Main Tera Hero', a thriller from Sriram Raghavan, 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dhulania' which is a rom-com, and a sequel to 'Any Body Can Dance'.

When asked what sort of changes did he witness in the two-year gap after the release of 'Student of the Year', Varun said, "The biggest change came after the trailer of 'Main Tera Hero' was released. Another effect of this masala comedy is a lot of people including shopkeepers and kids coming to know me....My first film 'Student of the Year' was meant for certain kind of an audience, but this film ('Main Tera Hero') is for all".
