Varun also shared the same poster on his social media accounts. Bollywood celebrities like Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Nora Fatehi, Shilp Shetty, Daboo Ratnani and Ekta Kapoor praised Varun for his guts on posing for a film poster in underwear.
Talking about the poster itself, Varun’s ‘don’t kill me I’m innocent’ face wins hearts instantly. His well-shaped body and those washboard abs make for a delightful watch as the star poses with a gun his hand a tangy orange belt bag around his waist. The first look promises the laughter riot that the film is claiming to be. The film is being produced by Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Hiroo Yash Johar and Shashank Khaitan.
On the work front, Varun is super busy promoting ‘Street Dancer 3D’ with Shraddha Kapoor and Nora Fatehi. The dance film is all set to release on 24 January alongside Kangana Ranaut’s family drama ‘Panga’. Both the film posters have been well-received by the audiences so far. Only time will tell which one fares better at the Box Office come Friday.
