Varun Dhawan and the director of Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, are going to collaborate on Rannbhoomi, which is going to be released on Diwali 2020. Karan Johar’s Dharma productions is going to produce, and the cast will be announced soon, as he tweeted today about the project. Varun Dhawan had yesterday tweeted a teaser on his page, with only a dramatic background song, which had considerably hyped his fans and the general audiences, who thought it was either going to Shuddhi or Shiddat. But, as it turns out, this is something entirely new.
Rannbhoomi, in english, means battlefield, and in his tweet, Varun had written, “A warrior will rise”, which seems to indicate that the movie could be about some kind of war, and could either be a period setting or modern set movie. But, any how, even though it will take more than a year to come to screens, the movie has excited a lot of people on social media, and the movie soon began trending on twitter after it was announced in a matter of minutes.
Varun has a lot of promising projects coming out this year, like October which is directed by Shoojit Sircar, and Sui Dhaaga with Anushka Sharma, in which he plays a tailor. These movies are very different from his usual comedy action mode, so it seems that Varun has finally decided to branch out of his comfort zone and take challenges.
