Varun Dhawan has already shocked his fans with his next project a few days back, and now revealing some bitter truths
Varun Dhawan sprung a surprise on his fans on February 5, with the revelation of his latest project - Baby John. This announcement, completely unknown of prior teasers or whispers, took social media by storm. Adding to the intrigue, Baby John marks the first-ever collaboration between Dhawan, South star Keerthy Suresh, and Jubilee-famed Wamiqa Gabbi.
Get ready to see Varun Dhawan like never before! This upcoming film - Baby John, marks a departure from his usual comedic roles, showcasing him in high-octane action sequences packed with intensity, aggression, and thrilling stunts. While Dhawan has dabbled in action before (Badlapur, Dilwale, Dishoom), Baby John promises to be an epic, action-packed spectacle that will redefine his on-screen persona for audiences, who haven't yet seen him perform these South Indian-inspired action styles.
The internet was filled with anticipation just a week ago when the intense teaser for Baby John dropped. Varun Dhawan, known for his charming persona, transformed into a force of intensity, sending shivers down the spines of fans. The first song, ‘Thaman’, further fueled the excitement, its pulsating beat hinting at the action-packed journey to come. All signs point to a blockbuster in the making, with goosebumps already erupting across B-Town. Today, Varun himself added to the frenzy, declaring that Baby John is the story of a gentle soul pushed to the verge of his tolerance power, unleashing a beast within. And based on everything we have seen so far, it's a transformation we can't wait to witness!
Baby John is the Hindi adaptation of Thalapathy Vijay's Tamil blockbuster - Theri (2016). Directed by Atlee, the original film resonated deeply with audiences, weaving a tale of vengeance and paternal love. This adaptation promises a similar emotional journey, albeit in a new language and cultural context. At the heart of the story lies a police officer, scarred by tragedy. Corrupt politicians brutally took his family, leaving him with only his beloved daughter. Driven by a thirst for justice and fueled by the pain of loss, he embarks on a dangerous path of retribution.
Baby John reflects the tender bond between a hardened ex-cop and his innocent daughter. In the original film, Vijay's endearing nickname bestowed upon him by his child becomes a powerful symbol of the love that transcends tragedy and fuels his fight for redemption. The film promises raw emotions, pulse-pounding action, and the powerful father-daughter relationship.
Directed by Kalees and backed by Atlee, Baby John is coming to roar at the theatres on May 31, 2024.
