It’s Varun Dhawan’s birthday today and while the actor turns a year older, perhaps his charming smile and looks might not give away his age! The actor is one busy bee and would be celebrating his birthday in London, along with the crew of Judwaa 2. Lucky for the movie is being directed by father David Dhawan, perhaps the cast might have some plans for the actor. Ever since he entered the industry, there is barely a moment when he wasn’t swarmed by love from fans. Considering the kind of films he has chosen, the work he has done, the way he has treated his fans, there’s absolutely nothing to hate about him. Kinda reminds us of this Hollywood hottie who sure resembles his personality. Oh yes, we’re talking about the heartthrob Zac Efron! If you think about it, both the young actors have stirred their fans with their brilliant onscreen performances as well as offscreen persona.

Here are five personality traits of the duo that we found similar. Scroll below and check it out.

Every girl’s teenage crush –

Just look at the two of them! Zac with his HSM (High School Musical) magic and Varun with his SOTY (Student of the Year) swag won hearts, especially of teenage girls. As a teen, there may have been that one time when even you swooned at the sight of these two hotties. Maybe it’s their cute boy-next-door looks or their chiselled body but they definitely have the charm to impress girls!

Fitness freak –

For all those who know and follow Varun really well, you’ll notice what a fitness freak he is. Well, see his Instagram for proof. He keeps putting up videos and pictures of his physique and that’s one thing to look out for. Plus, he even eats healthy, sleeps healthy and well, parties healthy! Similarly, Zac too is very strict about his regime. His Baywatch co-star Priyanka Chopra had revealed that the actor starts working out the minute he finds out that there’s time to roll. That says a lot about ho serious he is about fitness. Which makes us say this, their abs are the REAL deal!

The only young actors engaged in slapstic comedy –

Lately do you see any Bollywood actor do slapstic comedy? Apart from Akshay Kumar with his Housefull franchise and Ajay Devgn with his Golmaal instalments, you won’t find any young actor give a yay to slapstic comedy. However, here we have Varun, who has already been a part of a few slapstic comedy films and will soon be seen in one more, Judwaa 2. Zac, on the other hand, has also been a part of some comedies like Neighbours and the upcoming ensemble cast film, Baywatch. See! There’s another string of similarity between them.

Has done a variety of films –

However, keeping the slapstic comedy genre aside, you must know that the duo have done a variety of films, early in their respective careers. While Zac has done films like The Lucky One, The Paperboy and movies like such, even Varun has Badlapur, Badrinath ki Dulhania to compliment him. Come to think of it, both of them have even done similar kinda movies. Like HSM and ABCD 2 and stuff like that! Ain’t that cool now?

Dog lovers –

They’re both ardent dog lovers. While Zac’s dog is no more, Varun’s mutt is quite the lucky one to be pampered by his master. In fact, not just their own pets, both the actors are like crazy dog lovers!
