After delivering Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) and Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017), Varun Dhawan and Shashank Khaitan were set to join hands for a war period drama, titled Rannbhoomi. The project was announced by Karan Johar earlier this year and the team was planning to commence production by the year-end.

However, if latest reports are to be believed, there is a massive change in plans. Instead of completing their hat-trick with Rannbhoomi, the duo will first collaborate on an action entertainer. The movie will be developed as a franchise later on.

“This one will be an action-packed film on the lines of Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible series. In fact, the plan is to spin a franchise. It will be shot in India as well as abroad and is expected to go on the floors towards the middle of next year,” a source divulges the information.

Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan is presently busy with Dharma Productions’ next Kalank. Besides him, the movie also stars Madhuri Dixit, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan and Aditya Roy Kapur. After wrapping up Kalank, the actor will start shooting for Remo D’souza’s ABCD 3 with Katrina Kaif.
