After Main Tera Hero (2014) and Judwaa 2 (2017), Varun Dhawan is set to join forces with his filmmaker father David Dhawan once again. If reports are to be believed, the father-son duo has picked up the Govinda and Karisma Kapoor starrer Coolie No. 1 (1995) to remake it.

Yes, the duo is planning to contemporise the classic film, which still garners huge viewership on television. The movie will also revive the No. 1 franchise, which was a rage back then in the 1990s. If all goes well, Varun will commence work on the movie in June.

The much-in-demand actor is presently busy with Remo D’souza’s dance film Street Dancer. Before commencing work on Street Dancer with Shraddha Kapoor, the actor had wrapped up Dharma Productions’ multi-starrer Kalank, slated for a theatrical release on 19th April.

Before the year comes to an end, Varun is also expected to collaborate with filmmaker Shashank Khaitan. The two were earlier set to join hands for a war drama called Rannbhoomi, but that project has been put on the backburner.

Shashank is presently scripting a high-octane action thriller for Dhawan. “He is in the process of locking the script and plans to take the film on the floors towards the year-end, perhaps in November,” a source informs.

Looks like Varun is going to have a super busy year!
