Watch: Varun, Alia and the Indian Idol 5 judges sing for Badrinath Ki Dulhania director Shashank

Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are going all out for the promotions of their upcoming next, Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Along with hopping from one city to another, the cute on-screen couple has also headed to the small screen for the promotions and were today seen on the sets of singing reality shows- The Voice and Indian Idol 5.

Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the romantic comedy is a second installment of the franchise that began with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania in 2014, also helmed by Shashank.

Having worked with the director in two films, Varun seems to have developed a  great rapport with the filmmaker and also wished him with a sweet message on his birthday today.

The 29-year-old actor today took to Instagram to post a collage of himself along with his BKD filmmaker and captioned it as, “Happy birthday to the creator of #humpty and #badri. My director @shashankkhaitan. He’s one of the best human beings I have ever met. Thank you for being there for me.”

Making the big day all the more special was the BKD cast and Indian Idol judges-Farah, Sonu and Anu singing a Happy Birthday song for Shashank.

Varun also shared a small clip of everyone singing the birthday song and wrote, “This just happened #indianidol. Everyone sang happy birthday for our director of #badrinathkidulhania @shashankkhaitan” along with it.

How endearing!

Co-produced by Apoorva Mehta, Hiroo Johar and Karan Johar, the flick will add colours on the Holi weekend, on March 10.

Portraying Varun as Badri and Alia as Vaidehi, the movie brings to life a rustic love story of a young couple from small towns.

Incidentally, Varun and Alia have teamed up for the third time in BKD. Earlier, they have flaunted their explosive chemistry in Student of the Year and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
