Actor Varun Dhawan has reached Bulgaria to shoot Rohit Shetty's "Dilwale" which also features evergreen pair of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.

Pictures of Varun, co-star Kriti Sanon and choreographer Remo D'Souza were recently making rounds on the internet. This, after they shared their photographs of leaving for Bulgaria to shoot for a song.

A source reportedly revealed that the "ABCD 2" actor is too excited to work in "Dilwale", but the reason for that is not Bollywood superstar SRK.

Varun is a big fan of Johny Lever and he adores the king of comedy and mimicry. "Many might feel that Varun is eager to work with Shah Rukh, he's of course. But for him the real star on 'Dilwale' sets is Johny Lever. He adores Johny and is often seen spending his free time with the actor," Bollywood Life quoted the source as saying.

"Dilwale" is set to release on 18 December this year. Fans are eagerly waiting for this flick as it has a fresh pair -- Varun and Kriti -- and an old Jodi -- SRK and Kajol, who have re-united after five years on silver screen.

Meanwhile, the "Badlapur" actor has joined the cast of the film to complete the shoot. Earlier Varun was too busy with other film projects, including the promotion of "ABCD 2".

The dance flick, which also features Shraddha Kapoor, garnered appreciations from everywhere and it proved to be 2015's biggest opener at the box office.

Varun is also working in Karan Johar's "Shuddhi" opposite Alia Bhatt and Rohit Dhawan's "Dishoom". He might also be signed in for Karan Johar and Rohit's joint project, the remake of "Ram Lakhan". There were reports that the characters of Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff will be played by Varun and Sidharth Malhotra.
