There is no secret that Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan is a big World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) buff and has often expressed his excitement in meeting the superstars. Last year, in December, the October actor attended WWE Live India and met popular wrestlers Triple H and Sasha Banks and even flooded his Twitter timeline with photographs of them. And this time, Varun challenged WWE's monster Braun Strowman in a flexing contest.
Dhawan took to Instagram to boast about his meeting with Strowman (standing at six foot eight inch tall and weighing in at 420 pounds) and even struck a D-Generation X signature pose (performed by Shawn Michaels and Triple H) together. Sharing the fan moment with Strowman, he wrote on Instagram, "@braunstrowman the monster and me get into a flexing contest. Great guy had a lot of fun meeting him thank u @wwe for setting it up."
Moreover, Dhawan also had spent some time in a gym working out together.
Strowman arrived in Mumbai on July 19 and received a grand welcome from fans at a hotel. He will be travelling to Hyderabad on Saturday, July 21. He will also make a special appearance with a popular Bollywood celebrity on WWE Sunday Dhamaal on Sunday, July 22.
During his three-day promotional tour to India, Strowman will meet young athletes from the Special Olympics International and children's hospital patients. He will also be a part of WWE recruitment strategy looking for young talent from the country.
Strowman is the most feared wrestlers in WWE and has been unstoppable so far. At the recent WWE pay-per-view, Strowman went one on one with Kevin Owens inside a 20-feet high steel cage. He tossed Owens from top of the cage on the announce table when the latter was about to escape after he handcuffed the former to the wrestling ring.
The WWE superstar secured the Money In The Bank contract last month which guarantees a WWE Championship shot at any time at any place after winning the ladder match.
Varun Dhawan, on the other hand, is busy shooting for director Sharat Katariya's upcoming film Sui Dhaga along with Anushka Sharma. The movie is slated for release in September.
