As soon as he reached the place, a bunch of photographers gathered around his car during which one of them got hurt as his foot got run over by the actor’s car.
In a video that is doing the rounds online, a photographer is heard yelling, “Pair pe chadhaya (He ran over my foot)!” As soon as Varun realises what happened, he stepped out of the car to check if the injured lensman is alright.
Later in the clip, Varun tells the paparazzi off for creating such a commotion, which led to the accident. “Tumko photo kab nahi diya hai ki tum log aisa karte ho? Main nikal ke aata hoon na tum logon ke paas. Kyun halla karte ho? Kab nahi diya hai? Roz toh deta hoon (When have I not given you pictures that you resort to this? I always come out and pose for you. Why do you create such a commotion? When have I not given any pictures? I pose for you every day),” he told them.
Paparazzi frenzy is a real thing in Bollywood. But unlike most other entertainment industries across the world, celebrities and paparazzi share a cordial relationship in Bollywood.
The paps are not very intrusive, and most celebs pose for them and provide them with pictures. Incidents such as these are rare. When they do happen, they are handled courteously by both parties.
On the professional front, Varun recently wrapped the shoot of his upcoming entertainer ‘Coolie No 1’, which is helmed by his father David Dhawan. The film features Sara Ali Khan as the leading lady is scheduled to hit the screens on May 1.
