They formed a strong bond while work­ing to­gether on Humpty Sharma Ki Dul­ha­nia, and now ac­tor

Khai­tan (right) are set to work to­gether again. Ex­plains Shashank, “I am def­i­nitely work­ing with Varun in my next film. We have two scripts ready and I am cur­rently de­vel­op­ing the screen­play. Varun has liked both but ob­vi­ously, we will have to choose one. When we do de­velop the screen­play, we will take a call on which one to go ahead with. Both are in a fun space – com­edy dra­mas but we have a lot of de­ci­sions to be taken. Once both are ready, I will also show it to Karan (Jo­har – pro­ducer) and then we should start rolling some­time next year.” In a lighter vein, how­ever he adds, “Varun has be­come a su­per­star. So I don’t re­ally know if he go­ing to have the time to do my film.”

The di­rec­tor is all praises for the ac­tor and says that he had al­ways ex­pected Varun to do well. “I knew he was work­ing on Bad­la­pur and ABCD so when they re­leased and ev­ery­one praised his se­ri­ous roles, I wasn’t sur­prised at all. I al­ways knew that he is a very hard work­ing boy. Noth­ing he does sur­prises me,” he says. Will the hit-pair of Alia Bhatt and Varun make their hat­trick in this film and he re­mains non-com­mi­tal. “We want to choose ac­tors ac­cord­ing to the script. Be­sides Varun, no one has been fi­nalised as yet.”
