Varun Dhawan's film 'Badlapur' with Sriram Raghavan struck gold at the box office and turned out to be a sleeper hit. However the director never expected Varun to take up the role of 'Raghu' since he is quite different in real life.
Sriram's next is a black comedy with a thriller element. Apart from that he is also in talks with Varun for another film.
When asked about it he said, "During our discussions, we realised that in Bollywood, there are many genres which have not been done the way they should have been done. One of them is sci-fi. We don’t have great science fiction stories and I think today, with all the equipment available, one can attempt to make better sci-fi stories.That is what I have in mind for Varun.”
