Varun Dhawan rejects Nitesh Tiwari’s next film?

Not long ago, we came across an interesting piece that suggested Varun Dhawan had joined the cast of ‘Dangal’ director Nitesh Tiwari’s next. Based on a book titled ‘How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-Founded a Million Dollar Company’, the film is being produced by Sidharth Roy Kapur. While we were delighted to hear of the new association, it might not work out at the end.

If the latest buzz is anything to go by, then Varun has opted out of the film. However, we know of no possible reason yet. The youngster is presently busy with ‘Judwaa 2’, a sequel to Salman Khan-starrer 1997 blockbuster ‘Judwaa’. He as well is on board for Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’. Apart from these two, Varun has ‘Sui Dhaga’ alongside Anushka Sharma in his kitty. (Also Read: It’s a wrap for ‘Judwaa 2’, Varun Dhawan shares a picture)

If the news is true, do we credit it to his packed schedule? Sources, however, say that Varun didn’t like the script.

“Varun studies the pros and cons of each and every script that comes to him and also felt that the coming-of-age story did not have much commercial appeal. While there was a message of hope, the script was a bit dry as the novel was more of a pep talk for all hopeful entrepreneurs offering useful advice. It would be tough for him to portray someone who was his own age too. While Varun wants to do a biopic he’s clear about how the character should be. He had turned down the biopic on a hockey legend last year,” a source told a leading publication.

“We are thinking about him. But he is busy right now. We were looking for a good, young hero who has a great screen presence. I did speak to Varun about the film. He is more than happy about it (film). But only time will tell if he can do the film or not as he has a very busy schedule so I don’t know what the future holds,” Nitesh Tiwari had earlier told a news agency.
