Varun Dhawan completely surprised us with his amazing “dark” performance in ‘Badlapur’. The actor was only three films old at that time, and the way he pulled off such an edgy role speak volumes of his versatility.
Now, the sequel to this revenge drama film is underway. We obviously had expected Varun to be part of its sequel but no, this time, the dominating, lead role might be played by Deepika Padukone.
The film would be produced by Dinesh Vijan, who had previously collaborated with Deepika in movies like ‘Cocktail’, ‘Love Aaj Kal’ and ‘Finding Fanny’.
Deepika, being a close friend of Dinesh, recently did a mesmerizing song ‘Raabta’ for his directional debut.
Reports suggest that Dinesh has already narrated the whole idea to Deepika and she is really interested in this project.
The first draft of the script is almost done, and with a female protagonist, the cast will be completely new. Deepika’s character will reveal the darkest shades of a woman.
The shooting of ‘Badlapur 2’ is expected to start in mid-2018.
