Varun Dhawan made a splash with his last release October which hit the theatre screens earlier this year. The actor has been on a roll with Sui Dhaaga which stars Anushka Sharma as the female protagonist. The film is being produced by Yash Raj Films. The actor will also be featured in Karan Johar's upcoming Kalank.

Besides a handful of films, the buzz is that Varun Dhawan will be seen in Telugu director Sukumar's Bollywood film which will be bankrolled by Zee Entertainment Productions. Sukumar who has south films like Arya, Jagadam, Arya 2 and 100% Love to his credit has already discussed about the project with Varun. However, whether the film is a remake of the south film or it is completely based on a new subject is still uncertain. If the reports turn out to be true, then the film will mark Varun Dhawan's first collaboration with the Telugu film director.

A source close to the development said to a leading entertainment portal, "Varun and Sukumar have already met and have finished a preliminary round of discussions. Though as of not it is unclear whether the said film will be a remake of a south film or a totally new one, it is certain that Zee Entertainment will be backing the venture."

However, an official announcement about the same is still waiting. Apart from Sui Dhaaga and Kalank, Varun Dhawan will also be featured in the lead role in Nawabzaade. Moreover, the actor was recently seen performing on the song High Rated Gabru with Shraddha Kapoor for the same film.
