Actor Varun Dhawan is reuniting with his ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ director Shashank Khaitan for their next movie ‘Rannbhoomi’.

Last year, Karan Johar tweeted about the same stating, "So proud to announce #RANNBHOOMI ... @ShashankKhaitan and @Varun_dvn take a giant leap in their third offering together! A solid spectacle with a beating heart!!! DIWALI 2020 release! Remaining lead cast to be announced soon! @DharmaMovies @apoorvamehta18".

Later reports emerged that the project was put on a backburner and the duo would instead be making an espionage thriller.

Now as per reports in Mumbai Mirror, Shashank will be directing Varun in an out-and-out commercial film. The reports also stated that the movie will feature two female leads namely Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani. 

Talking about the film, a source told the tabloid, "After contemplating several options, Shashank and KJo finalised the trio. They liked the script and were immediately on board."

The untitled film is likely to go on floors by mid-2020 and it will be produced by Karan under his home banner Dharma Productions.

Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan will next be seen in India’s first 3D dance movie ‘Street Dancer’. Along with that he will also be seen in David Dhawan's Coolie No 1 alongside Sara Ali Khan. He is also reuniting with his ‘Badlapur’ director Sriram Raghavan for a biopic on Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal who was martyred during the 1971 Indo-Pak war.

On the other hand, Bhumi will next be seen in ‘Pati Patni Aur Who’ along with Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday. While Kiara has ‘Good Newwz’ with Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh.
