It was recently revealed by Varun Dhawan that he will be collaborating for the first time with filmmaker Shoojit Sircar for a movie. Talking about it with a news agency, Varun had said, “There is something that he has narrated to me which I really liked. I wanted to work with Shoojit Sircar ever since I watched Vicky Donor. I will start shooting for the film after Judwaa 2 and it is a love story.”
Speaking more in detail about the movie is Shoojit himself who told a leading daily, “Varun (Dhawan) and I are keen to work together on another film that Juhi (Chaturvedi; writer) and I are collaborating on. The final stages of scripting are on, and in another month or so, we will be ready to talk about it. It is going to be a slice of life, but unusual.”
We can’t wait to see this movie already!
He spoke about the other project he is working on, He said, “The project is based on freedom fighter Udham Singh. It will have my own take on the Indian Independence movement and him.”
Rumours have been rife that Ranveer Singh is being considered for the role of Udham Singh but no official confirmation has been made yet.
Shoojit’s movies have always been a mix of entertainment with a social message. Talking about it, Shoojit said, “It is difficult because that’s where I struggle a lot. I have grown up on documentaries. To do a documentary on anything is easy but to put a cinematic, fictional life or thrill to it is a tough job. It takes a lot of your instinct, vision, observations, experience and what’s most important is the kind of a person you are, as that will also reflect on screen. Whatever I am, it all comes on the screen.”
