Instagram: Varun Dhawan


Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania starred Varun Dhawan in the lead role. The movies were produced by Karan Johar and directed by Shashank Khaitan. Now, the trio has teamed up once again, but this time not for a Dulhania franchise film.

Varun will be seen in a movie titled Mr. Lele which will be produced by Karan Johar and directed by Shashank Khaitan. Karan took to Instagram to share the first look poster of the film. He posted, “Just when you thought that the news couldn’t get any better, it got more entertaining! #MrLele aka @varundvn along with @shashankkhaitan are going to start 2021 with a bang! Releasing 1st Jan, 2021. @apoorva1972 @dharmamovies.”


After looking at the poster, we can say that Mr. Lele will be a comedy entertainer. Varun Dhawan’s six-pack abs surely steal the show in the poster.

Reportedly, the film will star Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor as the female leads. Earlier, it was said that Mr. Lele will feature Bhumi and Kiara Advani, but the latter opted out of the film due to date issues.

Earlier, Varun and Shashank were all set to team up for a film titled Ranbhoomi. But the movie has been put on a backburner. The actor will next be seen on the big screen in Street Dancer 3D which is slated to release on 24th January 2020. He also has Coolie No. 1 in his kitty which will hit the screens on 1st May 2020.
