Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Johnny Lever and Paresh Rawal appear in his films playing supporting roles. His biggest success to date is 1993’s Aankhen, starring Govinda and Chunkey Pandey. His Partner (2007) also became a big success at the box office.

Dhawan got back to the trio of Govinda, Vashu Bhagnani and himself with the film, Do Knot Disturb.
My Gut Feel and comments:
David dhawan came back strongly last year with her remake of Chashme Baddoor, movie was indeed special with apt casting and sensibly handled non sense situation base comedy. Now with david dhawan is coming up with his latest offering with his son Varun Dhawan in main lead under ekta kapoor’s banner. Promos looks fines, songs are catchy and star cast is young. It is the remake of successful Telugu movie Kandireega as ekta kapoor brought the rights of this movie in Rs 2 crore. With time although our cinema evolved and similarly our audience evolved however still with single screen cinema has its share of audiences, main tera hero would found its audience there. I somehow not very optimistic about this movie and expected it to be an average full on masala entertainer which would practically a onetime watch.
I would give this movie 2.5 stars out of 5 stars, five days before the release.
