Varun Dhawan’s next with Sriram Raghavan has apparently been put on hold by the filmmaker as he chooses to prioritise another project, starring South actor Vijay Sethupathi.
“Filmmakers are now thinking twice before kickstarting a project that needs a big budget. The pandemic has decided to keep those projects on hold as the market is tight. This Varun Dhawan drama needed big money and was surely not feasible right now,” said a source, as quoted by Filmfare.
‘Ekkis’ was due to be a film with a big budget but it’s now on the backburner. The source adds, “Vijay Sethupathi has only done South films but his movies have become popular nationwide. Films like Vikram Vedha and Super Deluxe have become the talk of the town and even Hindi-watching audiences have got familiar with his face and his exceptional acting talent. Raghavan who’s known for his gritty dramas has decided to go ahead with this interesting concept, which has made this South star has given his nod and will mark his Bollywood debut”.
Many will be excited to see Sethupathi make his Hindi debut with Raghavan but no doubt it’s disappointing that Dhawan’s film is now on pause.
