Varun Dhawan roped in for Shoojit Sircar’s next

Varun Dhawan is on a roll and how. The actor is already all geared up for the release of his next, ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ with Alia Bhatt, this Holi, and has also started shooting for ‘Judwaa 2’, which is directed by his father David Dhawan and also stars Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez. Apart from these two, the actor has now signed his next, with Shoojit Sircar.

A source told DNA, “The actor and the filmmaker have been in discussions for a while and have finally locked the script. Varun has loved what Shoojit has envisioned.” And let us tell you that this one will not be just another easy breezy movie of his, like the ones he has done to date. The actor, who played an intense character in ‘Badlapur’ was loved by all and hence Shoojit has signed him for his next, which will be a dark film.

Says the source, “It’s not another light-hearted, feel-good film. Rather, it’s quite dark. And more than dark, it’s heartbreaking. Varun starts shooting for this as-yet untitled film once he’s done with ‘Judwaa 2’.”

“In fact, Shoojit absolutely loved Varun in ‘Badlapur’ and felt that he’s one of those young actors who can take up a film of this genre and still make it entertaining. Expect this one to be a notch higher. Varun has taken risks in the past and they have worked well for him and he’s extremely confident about pulling this one off as well,” added the source.

Well, well, we are really excited to catch Varun in a dark and gritty avatar.
