The film will be produced by Dharma Productions and will be directed by debutant Shashank Khaitan.
A source close to the production house reveals, “Though they have been seen together in a film before, their pairing is still fresh and young. Since Varun is currently busy shooting for (father) David Dhawan’s directorial (Main Tera Hero), and Alia has some work she needs to finish on 2 States, they will start shooting for this film by October this year.”
Confirming the news, Karan said, “We are starting a film with Varun and Alia, which is being directed by Shashank. This is his debut film; he has also written it. It’s a fun, warm and crazy love story and will be shot extensively in Punjab.” Commenting on the star cast, he added, “They (Varun and Alia) had an unrequited romance in SOTY, so this is technically their first on-screen love story.”
By the way, this is Alia Bhatt's third movie with Kjo and Varun Dhawan’s second. Alia is shooting for Karan Johar’s ‘2 States’ with Arjun Kapoor. '2 States' is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel with the same title.
Both Alia and Varun are young and they looked awesome together. Interestingly, the couple is rumored to be dating. They are spotted together in various occasions and always look comfortable in each other’s company. There is a hush-hush in the industry about their alleged relationship.
The film will go on floor once Alia wraps up Imtiaz Ali's 'Highway'. Varun will be next seen in his father and director David Dhawan's next 'Main Tera Hero'. 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ is expected to release on June 27,
