After watching Varun play an intense character in the film Badlapur, fans have been eagerly waiting and are super excited about this film. As he shares a picture and updates his followers about resuming the shoot on the film, this has come as good news for all the VD fans out there. 

Earlier, Varun Dhawan unveiled the official poster from the film where he can be seen as an angry man holding a small and sharp weapon in his hand. He captioned the post: Hold on tight, the ride is about to get wild. #BabyJohn coming to your nearest theaters on May 31st!" 

A few weeks ago, the makers of the film announced the film by unveiling Varun's character from the film. In the video, he can be seen seated on a throne which is surrounded by traditional dancers. He is seen holding a bird while exuding an intense and angry look. 


Baby John, directed by A Kaleeswaran was earlier titled VD18. The film also stars Keerthy Suresh, Wamiqa Gabbi, Jackie Shroff, and Rajpal Yadav in important parts. 

Earlier, in a conversation with Indianexpress, Jawan director Atlee credited Shah Rukh Khan for inspiring him to produce films. He was quoted as saying, "Shah Rukh sir inspired me, not just as an actor, but also as a producer. I have learnt the craft from spending four years with him. Now, I have started producing films here (Bollywood). I already produced a couple of films in the south, and now I have started producing all over — producing two in Tamil, two in Telugu, two in Hindi."

Baby John is all set to hit theatres on May 31.
