One of the first actors to join the Pokemon GO craze is Varun Dhawan. He too has posted about his penchant for the game on social media confessing it is super-addictive! To quote the man himself “It’s so addictive man! I mean, everytime I’m in the car and I’ve to reach somewhere and I see (a Pokemon)….and I’m like…Arrey yaar left lena idhar(laughs)” (sic).
