Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon are all set to entertain their fans once again with their sizzling chemistry in Director – Amar Kaushik’s next movie, ‘Bhediya’.
Varun and Kriti had earlier worked together in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Dilwale’ in 2015, which also featured Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. They were also seen in a special number in Karan Johar’s period drama ‘Kalank’ in 2019. Besides, Director Amar Kaushik is known for his work in ‘Stree’. He was conferred with Filmfare ‘Best Debutant Director Award’ in 2019 for ‘Stree’ featuring Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao.
Although not many details are revealed about ‘Bhediya’, it is believed to be a monster-satire or horror-comedy. The movie will go on floors in 2021. Initially there were rumours that Shraddha Kapoor might star in the film but after the actress declined to be a part of the movie, Kriti stepped in.
A source close to the development said, “It is true that Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon will be starring in Amar Kaushik’s next titled Bhediya. The duo fit the bill and the director wanted a pair that had already made its way into people’s hearts. The film will go on floors in January 2021.”
The source also said, “Bhediya is a monster satire and will see Varun and Kriti playing the characters they haven’t explored before. Kriti liked the concept and immediately gave her nod to the film that reunites her with Varun Dhawan five years after Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale that starred Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the lead. Kaushik’s film that’s been written by Niren Bhatt is said to be diametrically different from his 2018 horror-comedy, Stree.”
‘Bhediya’ will be produced by Dinesh Vijan under his production – Maddock Films. Presently, Kriti is busy shooting for a Maddock Films untitled venture which also stars Rajkummar Rao, Paresh Rawal, Dimple Kapadia and Aparshakti Khurrana. She also has ‘Mimi’ (produced by Maddock) and ‘Bachchan Pandey’ in her kitty. If sources are to be believed, Kriti will also be seen in ‘Adipurush’ opposite Prabhas.
Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan is geared up for the release of ‘Coolie No. 1’ opposite Sara Ali Khan on Amazon Prime. It will be released on Christmas 2020. He is also working with Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor in a romantic dramedy.
