Varun Dhawan and Shashank Khaitan to team up for yet another commercial entertainer

After the humongous success of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) and Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017), Varun Dhawan and Shashank Khaitan were set to team up once again for a big-ticket war saga, titled Rannbhoomi. Producer Karan Johar had even announced the project officially. However, for some reasons, the makers had to put Rannbhoomi on the backburner and Varun and Shashank decided to work on another film which was said to be a spy thriller.

But if reports are to be believed that film is also not happening. Talking about the same, Shashank Khaitan reveals to an entertainment portal, “The second half of the spy thriller wasn’t shaping up the way I had anticipated, and I felt if I have nothing new to say, I should not say it.”

The latest we hear that before Varun and Shashank finally start working on Rannbhoomi, there is one more project that is taking shape at Dharma Productions. And if all goes well, the duo might even decide to do it before Rannbhoomi starts rolling.

“Shashank is currently concentrating on putting together a project which will be in the same space that VD and his films usually are. It’s another commercial entertainer but not the third part in the Dulhania series. Shashank and Varun are best friends and he has already discussed the whole idea with him. VD has okayed the film which is currently in the scripting stage. Once that’s complete, Shashank, KJo and Varun will take a call on which film to roll first with – Rannbhoomi or the new one,” informs a source.
