Varun Dhawan is in talks with Anees Bazmee for a straight-up comedy.
The filmmaker’s next project will be a sequel to the 2005 blockbuster No Entry.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 director Anees Bazmee is looking forward to working with Varun Dhawan.
Varun Dhawan has appeared in a number of comedies and romantic comedies throughout the years, including Main Tera Hero, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Judwaa 2, and Coolie No. 1, to mention a few. And the actor appears to be returning to that realm very soon. We have exclusively learned that Varun Dhawan is in talks with popular filmmaker Anees Bazmee for a straight-up comedy.
According to a source, Varun and Anees have been discussing a possible collaboration for quite some time now, and things are now getting ahead. “They recently met and discussed the idea of teaming up on a comic caper. They will be doing the film once their current commitments are wrapped up,” stated a person close to the initiative, adding that despite not having worked up earlier, Varun and Anees enjoy a strong bond.

“Anees Bhai has written over 15 films for David Dhawan and is now all excited to make his maiden collaboration with Varun a special venture. Having acted in David Dhawan comedies, this would be a new world of humour for Varun, and even he is looking forward to the film. If all goes as planned, the comic caper will go on floors by next year end,” added the source. Anees has several ideas that will suit Varun’s personality and will begin developing them soon. The filmmaker’s next project will be a sequel to the 2005 blockbuster No Entry, starring Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, and Fardeen Khan.
“The Varun Dhawan starrer will be his next after No Entry 2,” informed the source. We reached out to Anees Bazmee for his comment on the development. The director confirmed that he is looking forward to working with Varun, but didn’t delve into much details. He exclusively told Pinkvilla, “Yes, definitely I want to make a film with Varun. I have written so many films for his father, David Saab and have known Varun since he was a 6 year old kid. We had even spent a lot of time on the sets of Aankhen back in the early 90s. He is a fantastic actor with good comic timing.”
The director, who is flying high after the success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, went on to say, “We met recently and spoke about the idea of collaborating. Right now, I am on the lookout for the right story for our collaboration. We share an emotional bond, and hence, our first film together needs to have a fantastic script. You will know it at the right time.”
Finally, when can we expect to hear more about this? “Very soon,” he says. Anees is well known for his comedic roles in films such as No Entry, Welcome, Singh Is King, Ready, Welcome Back, and, most recently, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Aside from directing, he has written for several David Dhawan successes from the 1990s. And his life will undoubtedly come full circle as he prepares to direct Jr. Dhawan aka Varun.
