Varun Dhawan Opts Out Of Two Major Projects…Career Revamp



Varun Dhawan

The reason Varun Dhawan   is not doing Shashank  Khaitan’s   Mr  Lele  is  not dates. It is the script. Varun Dhawan who  is on  a career-revamp spree  has decided to  not go ahead with the  film.

A  source  close to the development reveals, “After  the unexpected  failure  of  Street Dancer 3DVarun Dhawan has  decided  to be ruthless  about his career decisions. Although Shashank is  a close friend, Varun Dhawan  flatly told  Karan Johar that he didn’t  think the script  was  up to the mark.”

 Apparently Varun Dhawan doesn’t want  to serve up an  overdose of comedies  to the audience.

“As far as comedy goes, Varun feels his father(David Dhawan)’s Coolie No 1 is  enough for laughs this year. Varun now wants to sign a serious  dramatic  film, not lighthearted  frivolous fluff stuff,” says  the  source.

Interestingly this is  not  the only film  of director Shashank Khaitan that  Varun has opted out of. After  a fiesta  of flurry and fanfare , Varun has also opted out of  the ambitious  period drama Rambhoomi which Khaitan  was  supposed  to   direct for  producer  Karan  Johar.

 At the time when Ranbhoomi  was launched Varun Dhawan  had excitedly said, “It  is going to be the biggest  film of my career so far. I’ve never played a rural  character before.”

Varun Dhawan and  Shashank Khaitan have  collaborated  over two successful  films  in  the past Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and Badrinath  Ki DulhaniyaMr Lele was according to sources , “too much comedy in one year” for  Varun Dhawan. As  for Ranbhoomi, after Kalank , Varun  doesn’t want to do  another costume drama.So is this  the end  of another filmy friendship?
