Sanya Malhotra Joins Varun Dhawan’s ‘VD 18’ in Special Role

Published on

Varun Dhawan’s much-anticipated project, tentatively titled ‘VD 18,’ has been generating quite the buzz in recent times. Now, according to a recent report from Pinkvilla, it appears that Sanya Malhotra is all set to make a special appearance in this action-packed cop drama.

The film, presented by ‘Jawan’ director Atlee and directed by Kalees, features a star-studded cast, including Varun Dhawan, Wamiqa Gabbi, Rajpal Yadav, Sheeba Chaddha, and Keerthy Suresh.

Why This Story Matters?

Varun Dhawan’s previous film, ‘Bawaal,’ received unfavorable reviews and was embroiled in controversies due to its thematic parallels between a strained marital relationship and the Holocaust. With ‘VD 18,’ Dhawan seems to be setting his sights on a grand-scale, action-packed spectacle that promises to be larger-than-life. Furthermore, this film marks his return to the big screen, as his last theatrical outing was ‘Bhediya’ in November 2022.

Sanya Malhotra’s Special Cameo

As per a source cited by Pinkvilla, “Sanya readily accepted Atlee’s request for a cameo. She had a fantastic experience working on ‘Jawan’ and couldn’t turn down this opportunity. This is her way of expressing gratitude to Atlee for giving her the blockbuster ‘Jawan.’ She filmed her brief sequence with Varun in Bandra earlier this month.” The film is being produced by Murad Khetani and Priya Atlee.

Plot Similarities to Atlee’s ‘Theri’

It’s reported that in ‘VD 18,’ Varun Dhawan will portray a cop, and the storyline will revolve around his character going into hiding to ensure the safety of his daughter. Interestingly, Atlee’s previous film ‘Theri,’ featuring Thalapathy Vijay, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, and Amy Jackson, had an almost identical plot. It remains to be seen whether ‘VD 18’ will be a direct remake or offer a fresh perspective on the storyline.

What Lies Ahead?

‘VD 18’ is expected to conclude filming by February 2024 and is scheduled for release in May 2024. While Keerthy Suresh will play Varun Dhawan’s wife in the film, details about the roles of the other cast members are currently under wraps. In addition to ‘VD 18,’ Varun Dhawan has an upcoming comedy film with his father, David Dhawan, as well as ‘Bhediya 2’ and ‘Citadel’ in his pipeline. Meanwhile, Sanya Malhotra’s next venture is ‘Sam Bahadur.’
