YouTube star Danish Zehen inspired Varun Dhawan's look in 'Street Dancer 3D'

Mumbai, Jan 3 (PTI) Actor Varun Dhawan on Friday revealed that late YouTube star Danish Zehen was the inspiration behind his character's look in the upcoming film 'Street Dancer 3D'.

Zehen, who was a popular YouTube personality and a contestant of the reality TV show 'Ace of Space', died on December 20, 2018 in an accident on Sion-Panvel Highway in neighbouring Navi Mumbai.

'The handsome Danish was the inspiration for Sahej's look in #streetdancer. Danish is no more and is in a better place but is loved by so many so I thought I should share this so people should know that he even inspired us. @remodsouza sir suggested this and then we went for it,' Varun posted on Twitter.

The movie, directed by filmmaker-choreographer Remo D'Souza, also features Shraddha Kapoor, Nora Fatehi and Prabhudheva.

It is scheduled to be released on January 24. PTI SHD SHD
