Actor Varun Dhawan who had an image makeover in his filmography with the intense and violent drama ‘Badlapur’ directed by Sriram Raghavan has apparently refused another project with Mr Raghavan. And, newbie ‘Mirzya’ actor Harshvardhan Kapoor has signed on the dotted line.
Filmmaker Sriram Raghavan spoke about his untitled next and said that it will be a black comedy and a thriller. He said that the movie will not star his ‘Badlapur’ actor Varun Dhawan in it. Reports suggest that the movie is based on the life of a musician who fakes to be blind. It looks like Varun was in two minds about the movie as another movie ‘Kaabil’ starring Hrithik Roshan is also based on the concept of a blind man and he wanted to avoid conparisons. Also, Dhawan wasn’t too convinced about the commercial aspect of the movie. So, the director roped in ‘Mirzya’ actor Harshvardhan Kapoor who readily agreed.
This is Harshvardhan’s third project as after ‘Mirzya’, Harsh will be prepping up for the vigilante drama ‘Bhavesh Joshi’. Varun Dhawan has ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ with Alia Bhatt and the sequel to ‘Judwaa’ in his kitty.
