Successful actors turning producers is not a new thing in showbiz. From Raj Kapoor to Shah Rukh Khan, we have seen many examples where leading actors added a new feather to their cap by inventing into movies. The latest actor to join the league is Varun Dhawan.
According to reports, Varun Dhawan is set to launch his own production house in partnership with his filmmaker father, David Dhawan, and brother, Rohit Dhawan, who is also a director.
We hear that the trio will launch the first film under the banner in 2019, and it will be the next instalment of David Dhawan’s immensely popular No. 1 series which started in the 90s.
“It’s a family banner that they plan to launch and is in the initial stages of planning. It will be headed by David and the first film will be a commercial action-comedy. Since their previous collaborations did well at the box office, the family felt it’s the right time for the venture. Varun’s films have been getting a good recovery on satellite and music rights, with the television premiere of Judwaa 2 setting new records. He’s one of the most saleable actors today and a big draw at the box-office so it’s a win-win situation for the Dhawans,” a source close to the Dhawans discloses the information.
Varun has worked with his father on two successful films, Main Tera Hero (2014) and Judwaa 2 (2017). He has also done Dishoom (2016) with his elder brother Rohit Dhawan.
