Actor Varun Dhawan is having a good year so far, with his films fetching both, critical appreciation and box office success. This year's 'October' and 'Sui Dhaaga: Made in India' brought enough focus on him. An actor who takes risks, we already know he is a part of Dharma Productions' 'Kalank', a project that stars some of the most illustrious names of the industry, and if reports are to be believed, he will also star in Ali Abbas Zafar's 'Bharat'.
The film that stars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in key roles, will show Dhawan in a cameo. A source close to the project said Zafar approached the 'SOTY' actor and asked him to star in just a particular sequence in the film. “Ali had recently approached Varun with the idea and the actor readily agreed to come on board. The scene featuring Varun and Salman will be shot in the next few days,” they said. Dhawan also reportedly took off for Abu Dhabi to shoot the reported sequence.
The movie cast includes actors Disha Patani, Tabu, Jackie Shroff, and Sunil Grover. While Khan plays a daredevil stuntman, Patani plays a trapeze artist in the circus drama. Kaif was the last to join the cast, replacing Priyanka Chopra who quit the project earlier this year. 'Bharat' is a tribute to late actor Raj Kapoor's 'Mera Naam Joker'.
