The successful trio of Varun Dhawan, director Shashank Khaitan and producer Karan Johar is all set to give their audience a roller coaster ride with yet another film but this time there is a big twist. The three did two films in the past, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, which went on to become superhits in their respective release years but this time, the makers have moved away from usual rom-com and chosen a war story. Yes, Shashank and Karan are coming together for Rannbhoomi, a war film, starring Varun Dhawan.
This is going to be a first for Varun. The announcement was made on the official handle of Dharma Production, “Booking you guys for DIWALI 2020 with #RANNBHOOMI – a big war film starring homeboy @Varun_dvn. This time, the men from ‘Dulhania series’ take a giant leap in their 3rd offering into a solid spectacle with a beating heart! More soon! @karanjohar @apoorvamehta18 @ShashankKhaitan” The film will head for a release in Diwali of 2020. So, fans have to wait for quite a long time.
Talking about the project, Karan said, “‘Rannbhoomi’ is Shashank’s colossal and ambitious imagination to attempt a hat-trick with Varun. Shashank and Varun make an epic blend of creative and commercial extravaganza, which is Dharma Productions’ vision for the next few projects.”

Rannbhoomi is a warrior film, which showcases love, relationships, sacrifices, revenge & heroism. The makers aim to turn this project into a cinematic experience worthy of a mega festive release.
Meanwhile, Shashank and Karan have an extremely important and awaited project up for release this year. The two are on board for the remake version of Marathi superhit Sairat, titled Dhadak in Hindi. The film introduces Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. Varun, on the other hand, has his hands full with Shoojit Sircar’s October and Yash Raj Films’ Sui Dhaaga in which he would share the screen space with Anushka Sharma.
Also, Karan will be back on-screens as an actor with Welcome To New York, starring Sonakshi Sinha and Diljit Dosanjh.
