Varun Dhawan and Bhumi Pednekar in Shashank Khaitan’s next?
Bhumi Pednekar to romance Varun Dhawan in Shashank Khaitan's next?
Bollywood heartthrob Varun Dhawan is all set to collaborate with Shashank Khaitan once again. The director-actor duo is one of the most commercially successful pairings in Bollywood. The filmmaker has worked with Varun in the hit movies such as Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. The movie will have Varun reportedly sharing screen space with Bhumi Pednekar.
As reported by a source to Pinkvilla, “Shashank wanted a brilliant actor who can perform exceedingly well in his movie. He also wanted someone who has a hinterland connects and hence decided to offer the film to Bhumi. It’s a commercial entertainer and Bhumi has also liked the whole concept of the film. But she’s yet to sign on the dotted line. They plan to roll the film around the second half of 2020.”
Sources further added, “It’s in the same space as a Dulhania franchise. It has the same setting and milieu and both Varun and Bhumi are perfect for the roles. It’s yet another masala entertainer that will have the trademark Shashank Khaitan and Varun Dhawan stamp all over it.”
If the rumours do come true then this will be the first time Bhumi and Varun will be sharing screen space.
On the work front, Varun will wrap work on his dad David Dhawan’s film Coolie No.1 remake featuring Sara Ali Khan. He will next begin to shoot for Sriram Raghavan’s Ekkis, which is a biopic on martyr Arun Khetarpal. Bhumi, on the other hand, is gearing up for the release of Pati, Patni Aur Woh, Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare and Bhoot. She also begins shoot for Karan Johar’s Takht next February onwards.
