If there is one fresh pair that I am really excited to see on screen this year in the Hindi film industry, it has to be Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani. I saw the spark of chemistry between them in Kalank and when the pictures from their photoshoot together surfaced, I was just hooked. But what took that excitement to the next level was the images released with the release date announcement of Jug Jugg Jeeyo. Seeing Varun and Kiara as bride and groom in those beaming stills just melted my heart away. And now, according to a report in Pinkvilla, I might not have to wait much longer for them to team up again.
So reportedly, director Nitesh Tiwari, who is making a film with Varun backed by Sajid Nadiadwala, has found his leading lady in Kiara. Earlier there were reports of Janhvi Kapoor being approached for the part, but a source close to the development has informed that it is Kiara who has been finalized as Varun’s heroine in the film.
The film is touted to be an entertaining love story and is expected to go on floors by mid-February. But considering the current climate in the country due to the Omicron surge, the date might not be yet set in stone.
Varun and Kiara were about to team up for Mr Lele as well, but Varun had to drop out of the film and eventually Vicky Kaushal was roped in. The film is now releasing as Govinda Naam Mera and apart from Kiara and Vicky, it also features Bhumi Pednekar. There is some spark between Varun and Kiara that just automatically makes me root for them together and I can’t wait for it to come to life on screen on June 24, 2022 in Jug Jugg Jeeyo, and now with Nitesh’s film, it seems like it will be a double bonanza.
