Varun Dhawan is all set to collaborate again with his 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' director Shashank Khaitan for an out-and-out commercial entertainer. This will mark Khaitan and Dhawan's third film together -- the second one being 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania'. The Dhadak director has also signed Kiara Advani and Bhumi Pednekar on the dotted lines for the movie. As per the latest reports, the film will be titled as 'Mr. Lele.'
The trio was finalised after much contemplation by the director and Karan Johar. The shooting will kickstart by mid-2020. Khaitan is still finalising the script and getting the logistics in place.

A report in Pinkvilla stated that the movie is in the same space as Dulhania franchise. ''It has the same setting and milieu and both Varun and Bhumi are perfect for the roles. It's yet another masala entertainer that will have the trademark Shashank Khaitan and Varun Dhawan stamp all over it,'' it said.
Varun is currently shooting with Sara Ali Khan for father David Dhawan's comedy caper -- the remake of Coolie No. 1.
The young superstar will next kickstart Sriram Raghavan's film Ekkis, which is a biopic on 1971 Indo-Pak war hero Arun Khetarpal.
Kiara is awaiting the release of Good Newwz, co-starring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh. She has also wrapped up Indoo Ki Jawani, and is currently shooting for 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa', co-starring Kartik Aaryan.
