The yet-untitled film stars Varun Dhawan in the role of a police officer, while Keerthy Suresh is said to be playing his love interest. It’s a dramatic entertainer that promises to captivate audiences with its gripping storyline, powerful performances, and high-octane action sequences. Tamil filmmaker Atlee Kumar, who makes his Bollywood directorial debut with Shah Rukh Khan’s highly anticipated Jawan, is presenting this film, while his wife Priya Atlee produces it in association with Murad Khetani of Cine1 Studios. Kalees, who is directing this film, has already finished his preparation and is waiting with bated breath to call his shots starting mid-August.


The Atlee Kumar film aside, Varun Dhawan also has an Amazon Prime series lined up. The Badlapur actor is doing the Indian installment of Russo Brothers' global spy thriller series, Citadel, alongside Samantha Ruth Prabhu. The Family Man creators Raj and DK are directing this espionage thriller, which is currently in post-production and eyeing a mid-2024 premiere on Amazon Prime Video. Varun also has Amar Kaushik’s Bhediya 2 up his sleeve, and while it’s still in the writing stage, it’s expected to roll sometime mid-next year. Furthermore, Varun will also be seen reprising his werewolf character from Bhediya in a cameo role in Stree 2.
