It looks like Varun Dhawan and Shashank Khaitan will be collaborating again in not so distant future, the ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ (2017) director is said to be writing another film for Dhawan.
Reported on Box Office India, a close source reveals Khaitan is planning on making a commercial entertainer, “Shashank is currently concentrating on putting together a project which will be in the same space that VD and his films usually are. It’s another commercial entertainer, but not the third part in the Dulhania series. Shashank and Varun are best friends and he has already discussed the whole idea with him. VD has okayed the film which is currently in the scripting stage. Once that’s complete, Shashank, KJo and Varun will take a call on which film to roll first with – Rannbhoomi or the new one.”
Khaitan who is working together with Karan Johar on ‘Rannbhoomi’ with the ‘Judwaa 2’ (2017) actor as the lead, denies rumours of the film being however shelved, “Rannbhoomi script is done. The VFX and CG research is going on currently but there’s no timeline to the film yet.”
Dhawan was also down to star in Khaitan’s spy thriller project, which didn’t materialise in the end, Khaitan shared the reason why, “The second half of the spy thriller wasn’t shaping up the way I had anticipated, and I felt if I have nothing new to say, I should not say it.”
Following the completion of Remo D’Souza’s ‘Street Dancer’, Dhawan will be heading to London to start filming for ‘Coolie No.1’ remake.
