However, Varun Dhawan took on to Twitter and has put an end to all the speculations. Yes, he has confirmed that Shraddha Kapoor will replace Katrina Kaif in the upcoming third instalment of the ABCD series.
“Welcome home Chirkut”, Varun captioned the picture of Shraddha and him. Shraddha was also featured in ABCD 2, Varun’s first film in the series.
“I am excited to reunite with Remo Sir, Prabhudehva sir and Varun after ABCD 2. This was made possible by Bhushan Ji who brought us back and believed in this amazing story. It is going to be a lot of hard work for everyone involved but we are all pumped up.” stated Shraddha.
She will be seen as a professional dancer representing the Indian contingent alongside Varun and his team in the film which is on the lines of the Hollywood franchise Step Up. Apart from Shraddha and Varun, the film will mark the debut of choreographer Shakti Mohan and Vartika Jha.
Remo has said that ABCD 3 will be the biggest 3D dance film in the history of Bollywood, and has called it the ultimate dance film.
Shraddha has been riding high post the humongous Box Office success of Stree and is currently busy shooting for the biopic of ace badminton player, Saina Nehwal. She will be seen opposite Prabhas in Saaho and will also be teaming up with Sushant Singh Rajput for Chhichhore.
On the other hand, Varun Dhawan has recently completed Kalank where he will be seen teaming up with Alia Bhatt. The film is being produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala. The other film that Varan is busy working in is Rannbhoomi, which is once again being produced by Karan Johar and is being helmed by Shashank Khaitan.
