Kriti Sanon will be working again with Varun Dhawan, her co-star and hero from the 2015-Shah Rukh Khan Kajol starrer Dilwale. The duo is now set to work in Bhediya, a horror comedy directed by Amar Kaushik. Amar had earlier directed the 2018-horror comedy Stree, which had Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor in it.
Stating that Kriti is rather excited about the project, one of our sources points out that Bhediya has been written by Niren Bhatt, who also wrote Stree. "Bhediya will, however, be very different from Stree," the source says, adding, "Kriti’s role is also different from what Shraddha portrayed in Stree."
Kriti has been a regular feature in several Dinesh Vijan films — her last three films have been with Maddock Films, Dinesh’s production house — and this will be her eighth movie for the production house, with more of those in her kitty.
"Kriti will complete shooting or another Dinesh Vijan film before she starts shooting with Varun," says the source, who also informs us that Shraddha was considered for the role in Bhediya before she signed on the horror franchise Nagin.
