Varun Dhawan’s Character Details in Sanki- A Remake of the Tamil Thriller Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru

Varun Sanki

A source told the entertainment portal, “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 added, “It’s a cleverly crafted thriller, where Varun Dhawan plays a top cop who loses his leg during one of the investigations. It’s challenging for Varun because he plays a character battling a physical handicap for the first time in his career.”

The movie is said to go on floors by the end of this year after Varun is done with Bhediya and Jugg Jugg Jeeyo. Also, it is said that he will finish Sanki first before he moves on to Sriram Raghavan’s Ekkis.

The female lead of the film is Parineeti Chopra, as per the latest report. It will be the first time when Varun and Parineeti will romance on-screen for a full-fledged movie.

As per the Bollywood Hungama report, a source said, “Parineeti is being under consideration by Sajid Nadiadwala for the lead role in Sanki. The action-thriller is apparently a remake again, but nobody knows which film is being remade now. All that is out is Varun will be playing the lead role in the suspense drama. Now, the makers want to lock Pari opposite Varun. This will also be a fresh pairing for the masses because they have never done a film together before. While there have been verbal discussions as of now, the contract is yet to be locked.”
