In 2015, actor Varun Dhawan won many accolades and praises for the movie Badlapur and all the credit goes to the director, Sriram Raghavan. Many filmmakers have had made films on revenge drama but Raghavan’s take on the story was highly acclaimed. Made under the banner of Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films, the movie was critically as well as commercially a successful venture. Now, as per reports in a leading tabloid, the makers of Badlapur are planning for a sequel to the film. The director is most likely to collaborate with filmmaker Dinesh Vijan for this project after completing his on-going film, Shoot The Piano Player.
Talking about it, a source stated to the tabloid, “Sriram will give Dinesh a choice of two scripts. The first is an adventure thriller while the other one is a revenge drama. The latter is on the lines of Badlapur and Dinesh wants to pitch it as Badlapur 2. But it is not a follow-up on the earlier story; this is a different plot altogether but in the same zone.”
The source further said, “Sriram usually prefers to cast for his film only after his script is ready. But yes, the makers are on the lookout for an A-lister. It’s too early to confirm if Varun will be a part of the project.”
As the film Badlapur was wholly carried by Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, we hear that if it’s sequel ever happens, it won’t have any female lead.
