While the first two installments of the popular romantic comedy franchise starred Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, the upcoming ‘Dulhania 3’ is likely to introduce a major casting change, bringing a fresh dynamic to the beloved series. Karan Johar is reportedly going to take the helm once again as the franchise evolves with a new cast.

PeepingMoon.com revealed in a report that Alia Bhatt won’t be part of ‘Dulhania 3.’ Instead, Janhvi Kapoor is likely to step into the franchise opposite Varun Dhawan, marking her first venture in this popular series. The reason for Alia’s absence is unclear for now. The film, directed by Shashank Khaitan, reunites Varun and Janhvi after their charming chemistry in Nitesh Tiwari’s Bawaal last year. ‘Dulhania 3’ takes a fresh approach with a different plot and characters, unrelated to its predecessors, akin to ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’. With pre-production underway, the film is set likely to commence shooting in the coming months, adding an intriguing twist to the beloved franchise’s legacy. Varun may begin filming ‘Dulhania 3’ after completing Atlee’s Theri remake, juggling it alongside his father David Dhawan’s upcoming comedy flick. If reports are to be believed Janhvi will be balancing between two films with Sidharth Malhotra and Tiger Shroff and will align her schedule with Dulhania 3’s shooting timeline.

If reports are to be believed, the pairing of Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor in ‘Dulhania 3’ promises an intriguing dynamic, injecting new energy into the beloved franchise.
