It was earlier reported in July 2022 that Varun Dhawan and Anees Bazmee are discussing the possibility of working together on a feature film. The two have been talking about several comic book concepts the director had for Varun for the past six months. And now, according to those familiar with the situation, Varun and Anees have finally adopted a great idea for a project.
Kartik Aaryan was Bazmee's initial pick for the role, according to an ETimes report. After Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the director reportedly made an attempt to contact the actor. Kartik, however, was not convinced by the story.
Vicky Kaushal reportedly received a similar offer from Bazmee, but even he was not convinced by the story.
A source told Pinkvilla, “Varun and Anees are in talks to team up for the first time next year. Anees has been working to develop a one of its kind action comedy, and Varun has shown interest in this subject because it’s unique yet an out-and-out entertainer. He is waiting to hear the final narration and once that happens, the team would proceed to do the paperwork."
Zee Studios and Vishal Rana of Echelon Productions will co-produce the movie. Since all of the actor's availability dates are being worked out, the movie will start shooting sometime in 2019. The source further revealed that Anees is eager to delve into new territory in the comedy world after comedy about terror and comedy about families. His writing is absurd and entertaining, and the Indian audience will not have seen the humorous gags before. According to the source, Varun is now thrilled about the fundamental idea.
Along with this movie, Anees is also working alongside Shahid Kapoor in an outright comedy entertainer that will start filming early in the following year.
