Buzz has it that filmmakers Dinesh Vijan and Sriram Raghavan are set to team up again for a sequel to their 2015 film Badlapur which starred Varun Dhawan in the lead role.
Before Badlapur, Varun was known for his comic performances, but this Sriram Raghavan directorial changed his set image completely. Along with garnering great reviews, Badlapur put up a great show at the cash counter also.
And latest buzz suggests that the makers are planning to make a sequel. A source told an Indian daily that Sriram Raghavan, who is currently busy shooting for Shoot The Piano Player with Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte and Tabu, will soon collaborate with Dinesh for a project.
“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,” added the source.
Now the question arises, will Varun be a part of the sequel too? “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, said the source.
Meanwhile, Varun is currently busy with his upcoming film October.
