It is no secret that Varun Dhawan has been dating fashion designer Natasha Dalal. The star, however, has seldom spoken about their relationship.

Now, perhaps for the first time, the Sui Dhaaga (2018) actor has opened up on his relationship with Dalal and how she plays an important part in his career.

Speaking to Filmfare magazine, Dhawan credited Dalal with helping him to choose films like Badlapur (2015) and October (2018). The former was a dark crime thriller while October was a slow, sombre love story.

“I decided to do a film like Badlapur or October because of her," Dhawan told Filmfare.com. "It is because of her and some of our friends that I do slightly different films. They like such kind of cinema.”

The actor also shed some light on the nature of the relationship. “What’s special about our relationship," he said, "is that I have someone who isn’t with me just because I am an actor.

"It’s amazing to have someone like that in your life. We bond with each other and that’s the main thing. We have known each other for long, so the connection is deep. It’s like family. It has always been so.”

Dhawan will next be seen in Sharat Katariya’s Sui Dhaaga which is set to be released on 28 September.
