Christmas is here and it's time to spread the joy and love around. And what better way than to help people who really need that extra dose of cheer in their life. Well, Varun Dhawan certainly believes so!
Yesterday, Varun was at the St. Catherine of Siena School And Orphanage, Bandra where he played the perfect Santa to the kids. He gifted them bags, chocolates and a whole lot of happiness.
In an interview, the actor said, "It was extremely special and isn’t that the whole idea of Christmas? Giving back in some way to spread cheer and joy. I truly feel that I celebrated Christmas this time. I had gone to the same orphanage during Badrinath Ki Dulhania and promised the kids that I would be back. And Christmas was a great time to do that. Last time, I remember the orphanage’s brother told me that the kids didn’t have enough school bags. So although I got them chocolates, I made sure that I also got school bags for them."
When asked about his fondest memories, he said, "I remember my mother (Karuna Dhawan) going for the midnight mass very often to St. Andrews Church or Mount Mary, lighting candles and praying. I vividly remember accompanying her so many times. The whole atmosphere with festivities, candles and people singing Christmas carols etc. gives a lot of peace. In fact, I would love singing carols. Also, my father (director David Dhawan) was always like a real-life Santa Claus so that was fun for all of us."
Well, isn't this man an absolute sweetheart? We think so!
