IIFA 2018: Here’s why Varun Dhawan’s performance could outshine all others

There’s a lot going into his 10-minute act

Come rain or shine, Varun Dhawan will not miss a single day at the gym. But with the International Indian Film Academy awards (IIFA) around the corner, the lad is replacing his workout sessions with hard-core dance training instead. Here’s why we think his performance at IIFA 2018 in Thailand could just steal the show…

Already a very gifted dancer, Varun’s act will be a mix of multiple dance forms. A crowd-pleaser to the core with a huge fan following, Varun will also do a live act with the audience at a market-place. He is all excited about this sequence, which is something he has never done before. His 10 minute-long performance will include tracks like ‘Jee Karda…’ and his popular songs from ABCD 2. Audiences will be treated to the sight of him performing freestyle hip-hop and krumping to these numbers.


In the second part of his act, he will hit the stage with a blend of Bollywood hits, including ‘Sau Tarah Ke…’, ‘Aa Toh Sahii…’ and ‘Tan Tana Tan…’. The highlight though will be the song ‘High Rated Gabru’. Varun has already started working on his moves for this song by Guru Randhawa. Never one to take his work lightly – even if it is dance we are speaking of here – Varun has been slogging to perfect his moves. Apparently, he is putting in four hours of practice each day for his IIFA performance.

Gifted with a good memory, remembering the steps is not a challenge for Varun. However, his performance includes multiple styles and demands that he look effortless while performing them on stage! He adds, “Also, live acts are physically demanding, so keeping the momentum intact will be a tough feat.” His act will also incorporate technology, which calls for constant preparation.

Now you know why our eyes will be peeled for Varun at IIFA!
