Yes, such an incident happened to the heart throb of Bollywood when he was a teenager and studying in college. Varun shares this scary incident of his, when he has slapped by his elder brother and called disgrace by parents.
He revealed the incident on the second season of popular podcast by Neha Dhupia ‘No Filter Neha’, “This was way back in the day, I was like 16 or something. This was when I just started going out at night. And my friend had dropped me home at like 1 o’clock or something. So I came home at 1 am at night and there was this group of girls, they were staying on the first floor, I had never met them before. They were almost 10 years older than me and they were having a party up there and they saw me and were like you want to come, we’re having a party. So they said come up and all that. So I went up to this party and it was a pretty decent party. In the end there was only one guy left’’.
He further added, ‘’There were these two girls and me. It had become 2:30 am, my phone had gone off and I hadn’t informed anyone that I’m home. After one hour my brother came knocking on the door because the watchman had told my brother I had gone up over there and he was like is Varun there? And then he saw me coming out of the room, I had just come out of the room man because all of us were sitting in that room. And at that age, I definitely wasn’t going to get lucky with someone 10 years older than me. I didn’t have that game. So I came out, and my brother shut the door and he slapped me like super hard!’’
That’s not all, the things are about to get much messier, “He’s like what the hell are you doing? Why didn’t you tell us where you were? At least call or send a message. So I was like ‘bhaiya bhaiya please sorry.’ I thought he had slapped me now, so he won’t tell mom and dad you know, it’s done. ‘You slapped me, I understood, I messed up, done.’ But he started running up the stairs. Now I’ve run behind him, screaming, ‘Bhaiya, stop stop.’ He’s run up, rang the bell, my parents are awake! Dude, my parents are awake, my mom is awake, and my dad is pissed! Standing like I don’t know what I’ve done. Like I was at someone’s house, I wasn’t even under the influence of any alcohol, nothing. I was just sober like you know. What’s my fault?”
He was even punished for this and was called irresponsible, as he mentioned, “My mother was like, ‘you’re a disgrace to this family,’ my dad was like, ‘you’re this, ‘you’re that and we’re ashamed of you, you’re grounded for three months.’ And I’m like what have I done, how is it my fault that girls who are ten years older than me, call me to come to a party, which guy wouldn’t go?! Which guy? I said if I didn’t go also you would have another problem but THIS!”
