Varun Dhawan is all set to kickstart 2022 on an exciting note, especially on the professional front. The actor has a slew of projects lined up in his kitty, giving his fans reason to rejoice. Varun has already wrapped up the filming of his two upcoming big films including Jug Jugg Jeeyo, co-starring Kiara Advani and Bhediya, opposite Kriti Sanon. He will next look forward to a collaboration with ace filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani.
Varun and Hirani will together work on next project which is apparently to be titled as ‘Made In India’. As per reports, the said film will be slice-of-life drama based on a real life story and will be helmed by Rajkumar Hirani’s Assistant Director Karan Narvekar. As for the story of the film, Hirani himself has worked on it along with Neeraj Singh of Nil Battey Sannata fame.
While a definite timeline for the shoot of the film has not yet been decided reports claim that Varun Dhawan – Rajkumar Dirani project will go on floors in the second half of the year. However, Varun will shoot for this film only after completing his prior commitments that include Sajid Nadiadwala’s film with Nitesh Tiwari, and Sriram Raghavan’s Arun Kheterpal biopic.
Rajkumar’s last directorial venture remains the blockbuster biopic Sanju, headlined by Ranbir Kapoor. The 2018 film was based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt. Rajkumar has reportedly signed a social comedy with Shah Rukh Khan. The project, set up against the backdrop of immigration, will also feature Taapsee Pannu.
Varun is to feature in the Indian spinoff of Raj and DK’s Citadel. The action-packed Amazon Prime series is likely to feature Samantha Ruth Prabhu as well.
