Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan will be on a tight schedule as he is all set to get married to his steady date – Natasha Dalal. The Badlapur actor will reportedly leave for Alibaug in the coming days where the couple will tie the knot. Post this, the actor will start shooting for his forthcoming film Bhediya. The film is a horror comedy that will be directed by Amar Kaushik. Varun will star opposite Kriti Sanon after Dilwale. Bhediya is said to be a part of Dinesh Vijan’s horror universe.
“In February, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon will take off to Arunachal Pradesh to begin their work on Bhediya. It’s going to be a two-month schedule at real locations of the state, before calling it a wrap. The script demanded a certain kind of topography, and Arunachal Pradesh will lend the necessary support to the narrative of the film,” a close source said adding that a major portion of the film will be shot at Arunachal Pradesh.
Horror comedy in Bollywood started with Golmaal Again, followed by the success of Stree, and since ample of films have been made in this genre over the last three years. “This is more like a monster comedy than a quintessential horror comedy, and the team will be shooting extensively against the backdrop mountains and rivers in the North Eastern state. Major chunk will be shot in Arunachal, followed by some patchwork scenes in Mumbai,” the source said. The shoot of the film is likely to finish by April.
This will be Varun’s first film after his wedding that will take place on January 24. Reportedly, Bhediya will be followed by a cross-over with Stree and the soon to be released Roohi Afazana starring Janhvi Kapoor. Varun will also feature in Jug Jug Jeeyo whereas Kriti is currently shooting for Bachchan Pandey opposite Akshay Kumar in Jaisalmer.
