According to the latest development Varun Dhawan has been approached for Hindi remake of Atlee’s 2016 release ‘Their’.
Varun who’s last few films didn’t do well at the box office, is taking extra care to select his next projects now. With the very high buzz around Coolie. No 1 reboot fans are expecting a lot from this film which is helmed by his father and veteran filmmaker David Dhawan.
However, there is no official announcement has been made yet, there is a very strong buzz in the BTown that the actor will be doing ‘Theri’ remake. The original film was directed by Atlee, who is reportedly working on a script for Shah Rukh Khan these days.
A daily quoted a source as saying, “There’s no confirmation yet on whether Varun has signed on the dotted line, or whether Atlee himself will direct the remake. If not Atlee, an able director should be given to handle the reins. And if all goes well, this can boost Varun’s filmography. Also, we’d want Varun to do a masala film like this as he has the persona and image to carry off this film on his shoulders. Moreover, he has a tremendous young fan following who’ll love to see him in such a role and film. Agreed that his recent movies haven’t worked but no one doubts Varun’s talent and his ability to connect with the masses. Hence, Coolie No 1 along with Theri remake can bring him back on the top spot.”
The film was released in 2016 and featured South superstar Vijay, Amy Jackson and Samantha Akkineni in pivotal roles.
Theri is a story of a Chennai DCP who quits his job to keep his young daughter safe. But his past life horrors soon return to haunt him and his daughter’s safety is at stake.
