In the clip, we could hear Varun asking, “How is the halwa that I made, papa, for Maha Shivaratri?” To this, the filmmaker replies, “I think it's damn good ya. The first time, I had such a good halwa which has very less sugar for me. And, I can have the second bowl also.” For the caption, Varun Dhawan wrote, "Dad reviewing my halwa."
