Director Sriram Raghavan’s 2015 dark revenge thriller Badlapur, starring Varun Dhawan in the lead, might get a sequel soon. According to reports, producer Dinesh Vijan and Raghavan are all set to collaborate on a revenge drama once again.

“Sriram will give Dinesh a choice of two scripts. The first is an adventure thriller while the other one is a revenge drama. The latter is on the lines of Badlapur and Dinesh wants to pitch it as Badlapur 2. But it is not a follow-up on the earlier story, this is a different plot altogether but in the same zone. Sriram usually prefers to cast for his film only after his script is ready. But yes, the makers are on the lookout for an A-lister. It’s too early to confirm if Varun will be a part of the project,” said an unverified source, according to a Mumbai Mirror report.

Badlapur starred Dhawan in the lead with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi, Yami Gautam, Vinay Pathak, Divya Dutta and Radhika Apte in supporting roles.

Raghavan currently has another project in the works starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu and Radhika Apte. The film's woring title is Shoot The Piano Player, however the director is hoping to zero in on a Hindi title for the film.
