Varun Dhawan confirms Dharma film but mum on details

Actor Varun Dhawan kept mum on his “Student Of The Year” director Karan Johar’s film “Shuddhi”, but confirmed that he is doing another film with Karan’s production house, Dharma Productions.

At the last day shoot of his film “Dishoom”, Varun, asked about “Shuddhi”, said: “Honestly, for me, every film is important, even if I have only a day’s work for the film. Every film is very close to me. As far as ‘Shuddhi’ is concerned I think Karan Johar ji has given the answers to you. I’m doing another film with Dharma, and the announcement will be made soon.”

There have been reports that Varun will reunite with his “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” co-star Alia Bhatt, for a film that takes the franchise forward titled “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”, directed by the same director, Shashank Khaitan. Varun and Alia were spotted leaving the Dharma Productions office a few days back, where they reportedly had discussed the film.

About “Shuddhi”, there hasn’t been much progress after Karan had confirmed last May that Varun and Alia were chosen to be part of the film, directed by Karan Malhotra.

Kareena Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, and Salman Khan have been the names that were said to star in the film, over different intervals, before Varun and Alia.

Some reports have also claimed that the film has been shelved but veteran singer Udit Narayan recently said that he has sung a song with Shreya Ghoshal for the film.

About “Dishoom” with John Abraham, Varun said: “It’s honestly been a very challenging film, because there is a lot of action, John and me have been part of some daredevil stunts.”

Varun was last seen in the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer “Dilwale”.
