A few months back, it was announced that Varun Dhawan would be reuniting with his Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania director Shashank Khaitan and go for a hat-trick with the movie, Rannbhoomi. The project would be produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.

Rannbhoomi is not just an epic tale but indulgences in emotions and opulence equally, as it is a love story at heart and a revenge drama in essence.

While talking about Rannbhoomi, Varun had said to Hindustan Times that Shashank is a filmmaker that the actor has tremendous respect for. As their association has always been successful and magical, they decided to collaborate again and create a mammoth spectacle.

The actor also stated that Dharma Productions is home for him and Shashank and hence it was the best team to collaborate with. He concluded by saying that Rannbhoomi is an ambitious film with a beating heart.

Talking about the leading lady, many names have popped up with the recent one being Alia. Shashank maintains his stance that he is busy with his upcoming movie, Dhadak starring Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter.

However, according to a Mumbai-based tabloid, Alia is keen on reuniting with Varun and Shashank for the third time, given their success ratio. While Shashank has considered her for the role, he is yet to zero down on the female lead.

Rannbhoomi is slated for a Diwali 2020 release.

Meanwhile, Varun and Alia will be seen on-screen in Abhishek Varman’s Kalank which also stars Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur and Kunal Kemmu. Kalank is slated to release on April 19. 2019.
