Actor Varun Dhawan, who made his debut in Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, recently spoke his mind and has shown his support to the empowerment of women in India and across the world. The youngster has quickly grabbed the attention of the audiences across the country and continues to do so, with the announcement of his upcoming film directed by his father, David Dhawan.
Speaking about the women empowerment cause, Varun said, “Today women are at the top, be it any sphere, and they are taking the nation forward as much as any man, in fact more. And this empowerment comes only through education.” The youngster went on to add, “An educated woman empowers not only herself, but the entire family. At my home itself, I’ve had a very strong figure to look up to, my mum. She handles her own business, handles post-production studio, does interior-designing and is absolutely a strong businesswoman in her own right.”
Being new and fresh in the industry hasn’t kept this youngster from sharing his thoughts. For Varun, the upbringing of women in India is crucial. Today, women do make up a substantial part of the country’s economic force, but that certainly isn’t enough! Speaking about his mother who has been a role model for him, Varun also said, “So she’s been an example of what a woman is capable of doing. I also feel that it is women who have to be the driving force to bring about the change they want to see in society today.”
The actor will next be seen in Mein Tera Hero, directed by his father and produced by Ekta Kapoor.
