New Delhi: Bollywood's generation next star Varun Dhawan is considered to be one of the most bankable stars around. He has proved his acting mettle in several of his outings which turned out to be Box Office success. The actor, who made his debut with Karan Johar's 'Student Of The Year' in 2012  along with Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra has come a long way in these years.

As per latest reports, Varun, who recently shooting in Punjab for Remo D'Souza's upcoming dance film, the third installment of 'ABCD' franchise, ended up with a busted knee. The actor also suffered several muscle cramps post that.

Bollywoodlife quoted a source from the sets saying that the team 'ABCD 3' was shooting a celebratory song in Amritsar and Varun was required to shoot three dance pieces. After performing a dance step, a knee drop, he busted his knee and severe leg cramps. 

And it was the last day of the Amritsar schedule. After wrapping up the schedule, Varun returned to Mumbai and reportedly tended to his injury with his physio.
