Actor Varun Dhawan is on a roll. After announcing the trailer for October a few days ago, he has already announced the details of his next film. Though he hasn’t mentioned the title, he did reveal the release date – 8th November 2019, and that it will be a dance film. That’s over a year from now. Varun is also working on another film titled Rannbhoomi which is slated for a Diwali 2020 release.
Notice anything unusual? Varun’s dance film will release close to Diwali 2019. Same goes for Rannbhoomi. Typically such dates are kept reserved for megastars such as Shah Rukh Khan, Salman or Aamir.
Salman Khan usually releases his films around Eid, SRK during Diwali and Aamir Khan usually reserves dates around December, Christmas time. Though other films may release around a similar timeframe, filmmakers often reschedule their releases to avoid clashes. Just take a look at Padman. The Akshay Kumar starrer was delayed so that it does not clash with Padmaavat.
Varun Dhawan is a big star in Bollywood, but he still has a long way to go. To book a timeframe so long in advance, especially when big releases happen, goes to show that the actor is ready for a challenge.
Currently, there aren’t too many films which are about to release around Diwali next year, save for Sajid Khan’s Housefull 4 on October 25. As for Rannbhoomi, 2020 is a long way off and it remains to be seen if any other film will take the plunge and plan a Diwali release.
