This one he will direct and no prizes for guessing that his favourite writer Juhi Chaturvedi (Vicky Donor, Piku) is penning it. So yeah, if all goes well, Varun Dhawan will wait for Shoojit's orders- Lights, Camera, Action- in a few months from now.

The film is believed to be a simple love story, with a slice of life.

The heroine has not yet been finalised.

Varun has loved his role and agreed in principle. He has not yet signed the film though, as the modalities are yet being worked out.

It is clear that the film will be produced under Shoojit's banner Rising Sun Films.

It seems that Ranbir is busy with the Dutt biopic, which in turn has given Shoojit time to go in for a quickie. The biopic, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, also stars Sonam Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Paresh Rawal and Vicky Kaushal.

We had told you a few days ago that Shoojit had zeroed down on Ranbir to play Udham Singh (the man who assassinated Michael O'Dwyer to avenge the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre). The heroine of the Udham Singh also has not yet been cast. A lot now depends on when the Dutt biopic is complete.

Meanwhile, Varun awaits Badrinath Ki Dulhania where he has been cast opposite Alia Bhatt. The film is produced by Karan Johar and directed by Shashank Khaitan. The film marks the second instalment of the franchise that began with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania in 2014. Principal photography for the film began in May 2016, and the film is currently slated to release on March 11, 2017, on the Holi weekend.

Alongside, Varun has started shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala's Judwaa 2. Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu will play the female leads opposite the two Varuns. Judwaa which released in 1997 starred Salman Khan in two avatars opposite Karisma Kapoor and Rambha.

Interestingly, Salman and Karisma will play cameos in the sequel.
