‘Badlapur’, which proved to be the turning point in lead actor Varun Dhawan’s acting career, will have a second installment coming out soon. Recently, film's producer Dinesh Vijan confirmed that the script of the sequel is being worked on. And now, there are reports that, Bollywood's Mastani aka Deepika Padukone might replace Varun as the protagonist in the sequel.

A source further told DNA that, "A sequel to Badlapur, with a female protagonist and a completely new cast, is being planned. Dinesh has bounced the idea off to Deepika and she has loved it. It’s a character-driven role, just like Varun’s was in Badlapur. The script isn’t ready yet and once that’s done, the producer will give the actress a full narration and get her dates blocked for the film."

It is being said that Deepika Padukone is the first and last choice for the role for Dinesh Vijan since the latter shares a great rapport with the actress. The reports also suggest that 'Badlapur 2' will hit the floors in the second half of 2018.

'Badlapur', directed by Sriram Raghavan, got released in 2015 and featured Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi, Yami Gautam, Radhika Apte in pivotal roles along with Varun.

If this news turns out to be true then, it'll surely be interesting to see Deepika on a revenge spree in 'Badlapur 2'!
