Soon Varun started hitting back at a number of comments himself and clarified that he was coming back from the shoot wrap of his film. One user had written, “You went out for vacay and gave paps the chance to snap, now you come back and complain. Stop over showing your privilege when people in your country are dying.”  VD clapped back saying, “well your assumption is wrong I was shooting my film and not on holiday and what do u mean gave them a chance. How do u not give them a chance I have people who have also lost their life in covid so please keep ur assumptions to urself.”

On the same itself, Varun Dhawan had posted a common dp made by his fans for his birthday which is inching closer. With pictures of all his previous roles, the poster had a message ‘Donate Plasma, Save Lives’. Fans pointed out the poster seemed tone-deaf to the current health crisis and not in good taste. After drawing flak, he deleted the post and reflected that this is not the way to use the social platform in the current scenario.

Varun Dhawan schedule wrapped his upcoming horror drama opposite Kriti Sanon in the Covid free city of Ziro in Arunachal Pradesh this week. His beau Natasha Dalal had accompanied him to the shoot.
