Actor Varun Dhawan says things are going to be very different for him when he starts shooting for ''Main Tera Hero'', which will be directed by his father David Dhawan.

This will be Varun's second movie in Bollywood after Karan Johar's "Student Of The Year" (SOTY) and he feels things are going to be very professional between them.

"It is a different ball game (from SOTY)... my dad is a different task master. I don't look at him as my father and he does not look at me as his son when we are on the set. I need to perform and there are no two ways about that," Varun told IANS.


"Main Tera Hero" is Bollywood remake of Telugu movie "Kandireega" and will go on the floors June 20.

Abbas-Mustan's next a romantic

Director duo Abbas-Mustan, who have made action-thrillers like "Ajnabee", "Aitraaz", "Race" and "Players" are ready to dabble with the romantic genre.

"Yes, we will be making a love story... it's in the scripting stage. The love story will go on the floors after 'Vettai' remake," Abbas told IANS.

Anchoring came in handy for Manish

Anchor-actor Manish Paul, who makes his debut as lead actor in "Micky Virus", says his anchoring experience helped him when he faced the camera to act.

The 31-year-old has hosted shows like "Dance India Dance Li'l Masters" and "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar". However, he was hugely appreciated for his energetic and spontaneous performance on "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5" as its host.

"Anchoring has helped me facing the camera because initially I was not that confident about being in front of the camera," Manish told IANS and added he got comfortable with acting after doing workshops.

"When I started acting, I was conscious that I should not sound like an anchor, but acting workshops helped me there," he added.

Directed by debutante Saurabh Verma, Manish will be seen as computer hacker in "Mickey Virus".
