Mumbai: Unlike many enjoying the stardom attached to their name, actor Varun Dhawan was never a fan of the perks of being a filmmaker`s son. He says he used fake names in the past to hide his surname.

Son of filmmaker David Dhawan, Varun, who made his Bollywood debut with `Student Of The Year`, says he attended "several acting classes" using fake names.

"I used to register myself with fake names like Rahul Khanna or something because I did not want my last name to be revealed," the 26-year-old said during the shooting of show "Breakfast To Dinner".

The episode of "Breakfast To Dinner" featuring Varun will air Sunday.
