Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan may be riding high with frivolous roles like Judwaa 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania but he sure hit critical jackpot in 2015 with Badlapur. Dhawan’s stellar performance established him as an actor and a star who could keep the audience glued to the seats with ‘hatke’ cinema. Now as the makers of the film plan on filming a sequel to it, Varun might just get another opportunity to show the actor in him.
The movie where Varun played a vengeful husband out to avenge his wife and child’s death will see its director Shriram Raghavan collaborate with filmmaker Dinesh Vijan for the second sequel to the film.
A source close to the development told a tabloid, "Sriram will give Dinesh a choice of two scripts. The first is an adventure thriller while the other one is a revenge drama. The latter is on the lines of Badlapur and Dinesh wants to pitch it as Badlapur 2. But it is not a follow-up on the earlier story, this is a different plot altogether but in the same zone."
He added that "Sriram usually prefers to cast for his film only after his script is ready. But yes, the makers are on the lookout for an A-lister. It’s too early to confirm if Varun will be a part of the project." When you already have a 100 crore A-lister on your hand, a director need not look further.
While the entire development remains speculative, fans cannot wait to see Varun play and angry character again.
