There is something menacing about Varun Dhawan's look in Sriram Raghavan's 'Badlapur'.
The actor, who till now has played the boy-next-door in his films, turns a murderous man in Raghavan's film out to seek revenge.
The film also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Yami Gautam, Huma Qureshi, Radhika Apte and Divya Dutta in key roles.
'Badlapur' is set to hit the theatres in February 2015.
Eros International is co-producing the movie with Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films after associating with the banner on films like 'Love Aaj Kal', 'Agent Vinod', 'Cocktail' and 'Go Goa Gone'.
Director Sriram Raghavan is known for helming thrillers such as 'Ek Hasina Thi' and 'Johnny Gaddaar'.
The plot of the film is intense and intriguing and promises to be high on entertainment in Raghavan's inimitable style, Sunil Lulla, managing director, Eros International Media Ltd, said in a statement.
"We are confident that the film will connect with audiences with its gritty screenplay and brilliant performances," Lulla added.
The soundtrack and background score for 'Badlapur' has been composed by the talented duo Sachin-Jigar.
Producer Dinesh Vijan said, "'Badlapur' depicts the age-old conflict of good versus evil but Raghavan takes that concept further and twists it beyond recognition."
"He is one of the purest filmmakers I know and also the craziest. 'Badlapur' is unadulterated Raghavan. He has found the perfect accomplice to depict this madness in Varun Dhawan in a never before seen role," he added.
