At the last day shoot of his film Dishoom, when Varun was asked about Shuddhi, he said: “Honestly, for me, every film is important, even if I have only a day’s work for the film. Every film is very close to me. As far as Shuddhi is concerned I think Karan Johar ji has given the answers to you. I’m doing another film with Dharma, and the announcement will be made soon.”
There have been reports that Varun will reunite with his Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania co-star Alia Bhatt, for a film that takes the franchise forward titled Badrinath Ki Dulhania, directed by the same director, Shashank Khaitan. Varun and Alia were spotted leaving the Dharma Productions’ office a few days back, where they reportedly had discussed the film.
About Shuddhi, there hasn’t been much progress after Karan had confirmed last May that Varun and Alia were chosen to be the part of the film, directed by Karan Malhotra.
Some reports have also claimed that the film has been shelved but veteran singer Udit Narayan recently said that he has sung a song with Shreya Ghoshal for the film.
About Dishoom with John Abraham, Varun said: “It’s honestly been a very challenging film, because there is a lot of action, John and me have been part of some daredevil stunts.”
Varun was last seen in the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Dilwale.
