Varun Dhawan, who is all to set to launch the trailer of his next film Main Tera Hero, worked as a vegetable vendor in Mumbai’s famous Crawford market on January 21, just for the experience.

He shared a collage of pictures and tweeted: ‘No no it's just a thought guys I became a patiwala for a day and worked in Crawford market it really moved me. Forget movies and heroes the real heroes are these people who toil everyday to earn their bread and butter its really really difficult. I know im being too preachy so im going to shut up.’

He also shared the latest poster of Main Tera Hero, featuring Nargis Fakhri and Ileana D’Cruz, and added: ‘thank you everyone for the love and hate. Both these emotions can fill you with positivity and negativity. Strange how love and hate can have the same effect on people.!!! Time to move out of my dark chambers but honestly thank you to everyone on feedback on the posters made me feel special.’

Directed by Varun's father David Dhawan, the rom-com will release on April 4.
