Varun Dhawan refused to take sides in the current clamour that has Maharashtra Navnirman Sena demanding the ouster of Pakistani actors from the country. The actor remained neutral and said he would respect the law of the land and abide by whatever the government says. Said Varun, “I will follow what the government of India will say. Jo bhi Bharat sarkar kahegi woh sar ankhon par.”

The actor expressed his deep regret at the martyrdom of 18 Indian army jawans and committed his support with the Indian government in its fight against terror. “The attacks on our jawans were horrible. My heart goes out to them and I stand with the government of India,” said Varun.

Speaking particularly on the call for ban demanded by MNS, Varun said, “The government has to say that. It (ban) has to come from the government. And if they take any steps, we will have to see what they do after that. If by banning actors, terrorism can be stopped then they should do it. That is something the government needs to decide first.”
