Varun Dhawan and Shashank Khaitan have together set up what the latter refers to as the Dulhania franchise. The first film in the series was Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania in 2014 starring Varun Dhawan alongside Alia Bhatt.
Shashank reintroduced the two in a new story with Badrinath Ki Dulhania in 2017. Both films were produced by Karan Johar who recently revealed that Varun and Shashank will be teaming up again for another film. Revealing this on Twitter, Johar wrote, "The winning dulhania team are back with a maha entertainer with a dash of crazy."
