With Bollywood slowly resuming its work and pending projects amid the ever raising novel coronavirus pandemic, the latest report suggests that Dharma productions have planning its next project.

The owner of Dharma Productions, Karan Johar, has been in news for all the wrong reasons in the last few days. Karan Johar has been accused of being the reason for Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. Actor Kangana Ranaut’s entry to the debate of Rajput’s death only increased the public anger against Karan Johar for breeding nepotism in the Hindi Film Industry.


Now, as per a report in the Times of India, Karan Johar has roped in Varun Dhawan, Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, and Kiara Advani for a new film. As per the report,

“If all goes well, the film in question will go on floors in Mumbai in October or November.”

Karan Johar Likely To Recieve More Flak

Kiara Advani will be reuniting with Karan Johar and her Good Newwz director Raj Mehta. For Varun Dhawan, it will be his fifth collaboration with Karan Johar’s Dharma Production. Neetu Kapoor, who lost her husband Rishi Kapoor, is looking to resume work after a long gap. She had taken a gap to look after her ailing husband. The film which also has Anil Kapoor is rumored to be a comedy flick.

With Karan Johar receiving flak for casting star-kids in his film and not giving enough opportunities to ‘outsiders’, this move is also likely to draw him severe criticism. After the backlash, the filmmaker unfollowed many people from the industry from his Twitter account. He also virtually quit Twitter and has been inactive for months now. Even during the trailer and poster release of his upcoming film Gunjan Saxena, Karan Johar hasn’t posted any updates. His name has also been omitted from the poster of the film and even the trailer.
