About David Dhawan

David Dhawan is an Indian film director. He is the father of Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan and director Rohit Dhawan. David Dhawan was born in Agartala to a Punjabi Hindu family and bought up in Kanpur where his father, who was a manager in UCO Bank, got transferred. He studied in Christ Church College and then joined Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) for acting, but realised that he can't act. So he took up editing as an option. His neighbours used to call him as 'David'. Later, his father asked him to get his name officially changed to 'David' from 'Rajinder'.
