A couple of days ago, we had reported that after the rousing success of comic-capers ‘Main Tera Hero’ (2014) and ‘Judwaa 2’ (2017), Varun Dhawan would join forces with his filmmaker father David Dhawan once again for an untitled film which would revive the No. 1 series senior Dhawan started with Govinda and Karisma Kapoor back in the 90s. The latest update on the project is that it will be made under a new production house which will be jointly created by David Dhawan, his director son Rohit Dhawan and, of course, Varun Dhawan.
A source close to the Dhawans revealed to a popular tabloid, “It’s a family banner that they plan to launch and is in the initial stages of planning. It will be headed by David and the first film will be a commercial action-comedy. Since their previous collaborations did well at the box office, the family felt it’s the right time for the venture. Varun’s films have been getting a good recovery on satellite and music rights, with the television premiere of ‘Judwaa 2’ setting new records. He’s one of the most saleable actors today and a big draw at the box-office, so it’s a win-win situation for the Dhawans.”
The first film under the production will mount the shooting floor in 2019 because, at the moment, Varun Dhawan has no dates available to work on a new project. The actor, who was last seen in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’ (2018), is currently busy promoting his upcoming film ‘Sui Dhaga’ with Anushka Sharma. He is simultaneously shooting for Dharma Productions Abhishek Verman-directed period drama ‘Kalank’. After wrapping up ‘Kalank’, he will move on to shoot Remo D’souza’s much-awaited dance-based film with Katrina Kaif. His next will be Shashank Khaitan’s war drama ‘Rannbhoomi’.
