I proposed to Varun when I was eight, Shraddha Kapoor

Shraddha Kapoor, who is sharing screen space with the ‘Badlapur’ actor Varun Dhawan in ‘ABCD 2’said that he was her childhood crush. Shraddha said she proposed to Varun when she was just eight and then Varun was too small to understand what she actually means.

Shraddha and Varun, just wrapped up ‘ABCD 2’ directed by Remo D’Souza, spoke about her feeling for Varun, “We were shooting for a romantic song in a beautiful mountainous location, and suddenly, I burst out laughing when I remembered what had happened when I had professed my love to Varun years ago,” says Shraddha.

Waking down the memory lane, Shraddha said that her father Shakti Kapoor and Varun’s father’s David Dhawan have worked together in the past, they both often accompanied their parents on outdoor schedule.  

On one of the schedules, the ‘Haider’ actress, who was just eight years old then, decided to express her love for Varun, “I was only eight, and I had a crush on Varun. So, I thought I should just tell him. I decided to say ‘I love you’ backwards. So, I told Varun that I am saying a sentence backwards, and he must listen carefully. Then I said ‘You – love – I’. I think it was too complicated for a little boy to understand because he gave me a stern ‘No’, and just ran away from there. It’s been a joke between us ever since,” says Shraddha.
