Varun Dhawan has been roped in for yet another Shashank Khaitan movie but this time it is not Alia Bhatt to join the forces. Two other leading ladies of Bollywood, Kiara Advani and Bhumi Pednekar will team up with the Kalank actor for a massy entertainer.
The film will be produced by Karan Johar and will mark Varun and Shashank’s third collaboration after the Dulhania series (Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania). The film will be titled Mr Lele.
“After contemplating several options, the makers have zeroed in on Mr Lele as it suits the story best,” revealed a source close to the development to Mumbai Mirror. The film is an out-and-out commercial entertainer and very different from anything the trio has done before. It is currently in the prep and expected to go on the floors in late February or early March. The first schedule will be in Mumbai.
This will be Kiara’s 2nd veture with Shashank after Good Newwz who has co-produced the film. For Bhumi its the 2nd Karan Johar venture after Takht. Kiara has already appeared oppsite kalank for a cameo in Kalank.
Varun meanwhile has a slew of release up his sleeves from Street Dancer 3D to Coolie No 1. Bhumi on the other hand has Bhoot: the Haunted Ship and period drama Takht. Kiara has the busiest year, with four films up for release, including Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 opposite
