Varun Dhawan and Sajid Nadiadwala collaborated for Dishoom and Judwaa 2, which had a glorious run at the box office and was loved by all. It was a few months back when Sajid Nadiadwala announced their third venture with the actor. Titled ‘Sanki’ the film is actually an official remake of Tamil neo-noir crime thriller Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru (2016). According to a few reports, Parineeti Chopra is being considered for the role opposite Varun.
Now, we have got to know that Varun is all set to play the role of a handicapped cop in the film. According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, a source was quoted as saying, “Sajid Nadiadwala had bought the official rights to the superhit Tamil thriller Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru. Sanki is a remake of the same film. They are adapting the screenplay to suit the pan-India platform.”
The source further added that Varun Dhawan plays a top cop who loses his leg during one of the investigations and it’s challenging for the actor as he plays a character battling a physical handicap for the first time in his career.
The film is planned to go on floors later this year, after Varun wraps up the shooting for Bhediya and Jug Jugg Jeeyo. He will mostly finish Sanki before he jumps on to Andhadhun-director Sriram Raghavan‘s Ekkis.
