Karan Johar might direct Varun Dhawan and Tiger Shroff in action project

Karan Johar might venture into the action genre with a film starring Tiger Shroff and Varun Dhawan, reported Bollywood Hungama. The untitled action venture will be a departure from Johar’s usual directorial genre of family dramas and romance.

A source cited by Bollywood Hungama said, “On May 25, Karan will be turning a year old, and with that, he intends on embarking on a new journey of filmmaking. So far Karan’s forte in filmmaking has been family dramas and romantic stories. However, he is eager to try his hand with the action genre. For 25 years now Karan has been doing a certain kind of cinema, and he is looking to experiment and change. Change is always good, and given his experience in filmmaking, it will most certainly be a cakewalk for him. But yes, action is the new genre that Karan is looking at right now.”

Talking about the choice of actors, the source said, “Tiger Shroff has already established himself as an action star with films like Heropanti (2014), Baaghi (2016), and War (2019). He has excelled in entertaining the audience with his high-octane stunts and perfect execution. So, it comes as no surprise that Karan has roped him to feature as one of the two leads in the new project. As for Varun Dhawan, he too has had his share of action film, though they were action dramas or comedies, he has proved that he has what it takes to become an action hero.”

Johar’s next feature is called Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. It releases in theatres on July 28.
