Varun Dhawan is not called a hitmaker for nothing! His ability to give content filled as well as massy roles to his fans made him acquire that name. His performance in the recently released movie ‘Sui Dhaaga’ has received appreciation from the critics as well as masses. Now, it seems that he is diving deeper in the filmy space with his experimentation with new genres. His ambitious period drama ‘Rannbhoomi’ directed by Shashank Khaitan was announced as the Diwali 2020 release. However, he will be seen in an espionage thriller before that by the same director.
As reported in DNA, a source told, “Shashank has been designing an espionage thriller and he has bounced off the idea to both Karan (Johar, who will produce it) and Varun, who will, of course, star in it. The film is expected to go on floors in 2019." Khaitan too backed this information saying, “It’s something both he and I have never done before." The Judwaa 2 actor will reportedly play an agent in this film. They have also apparently roped in stunt experts from Hollywood for this flick.
While the topic indeed looks interesting, Shashank’s last film ‘Dhadak’ received a dull response despite star kids Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter in it. It was an ‘official adaptation’ of the critically acclaimed blockbuster film ‘Sairat’ and it clearly failed to live up to the expectations of people. Meanwhile, thriller is the new cool in Bollywood. The recently released Ayushmann Khurrana starrer AndhaDhun got thumbs up by critics, clearly making it a must-watch. (Read AndhaDhun Review). Will Varun and Shashank manage to impress everyone with their project?
