MUMBAI: Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt may have had a dash of romance in Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year’. But it’s Dharma Productions again that are bringing the young pair together in their first full-fledged romantic role post ‘SOTY’.
The young pair will be seen in Shashank Khaitan’s ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’. Sounds quite like the Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol cult classic ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ right?
Even producer Karan Johar confirms and says that ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ will be a fun, warm and crazy love story and will be shot extensively in Punjab. Quite like Aditya Chopra’s ‘DDLJ’ itself!
Alia Bhatt, currently shooting for another Dharma venture ‘2 States’ also expressed her excitement on being paired with Varun. “My next is ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’. The announcement has just been made and I am doing this film with Varun. I am very excited about that”, said Alia at an ongoing jewellery event.
Varun Dhawan is currently shooting for papa, David Dhawan’s ‘Main Tera Hero’. Once he is done with that, he will start shooting for ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’. The film directed by debutant Shashank Sharma and produced by Karan Johar will go on floors this October.
Are we headed for a new-age version of ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ with the young pairing between Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan? Let the romance begin!
