Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan has gotten an early birthday gift from his favourite WWE wrestler Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

The "Badlapur" actor has always mentioned that he idolised The Rock when he was a kid and he is a huge fan of the wrestler-actor. The Rock has previously exchanged few tweets with Varun, but the recent tweet from the wrestler surprised the young actor.

"@varunUkFanClub Wish Varun a very Happy Birthday from me. He's got awesome fans to care as much as you guys do. Great to see! DJ," Dwayne tweeted.

Varun, who was overwhelmed with the response, thanked his fans for the "best birthday gift".

"cannot believe you guys made the @TheRock wish me. so moved by this has to be the best birthday gift thank you all of you @varunUkFanClub," Varun replied.
