New Delhi, Dec. 16 -- Actor Boman Irani always knew actor Varun Dhawan as his son Kayoze's childhood friend. But when it came to sharing screen space with Varun, Boman decided to change the equation.

"I've known Varun as my son's friend and he has always been very respectful towards me. But as co-actors, I consciously wanted to blur the lines and get him to feel comfortable around me as a friend and a co-actor and not as an 'uncle'. Of course, Varun still shows me the kind of respect he always has, but we share a more relaxed equation now," says Irani, who will be seen with Varun in Rohit Shetty's next.

The 56-year-old actor emphasises on the importance of making co-stars feel comfortable while shooting.

"I really think that while it's good to be serious about our work, it's not such a good idea to be so serious about ourselves. I wanted Varun to enjoy the process and not inhibit the performance because of me being 'sir' for him. So, not just Varun, I feel that it's important to make your co-actors feel comfortable and get into the space of friends. It really helps," says Irani.
