Reportedly, he is gearing up for a return to direction. Shoojit is planning to make a dark, gritty film with Varun Dhawan as its protagonist.
A source says Varun and Shoojit have been discussing the project for a while and the two are keen to join hands.
Varun has tasted much success with romcoms like 'Student Of The Year', 'Main Tera Hero', 'ABCD 2' and 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania', but has also managed to pull off a serious role in Sriram Raghavan's revenge-drama 'Badlapur'.
