News is that Ekta Kapoor has roped in David Dhawan to direct a film, titled Main Tera Hero
, for her production house. The film, which is the Hindi remake of the 2011 Telugu hit Kandireega
, will feature David's son Varun Dhawan in the leading role.
Ekta was quoted saying that David is the massiest director she knows and that Varun is like a young Salman Khan in the making. She further added that her film is going to be very massy, but the treatment will be classy.
David Dhawan stated that after working with superstars like Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Govinda and Salman Khan, it's a great feeling to team up with his own son. He further stated that they are going to take the blueprint of the South film, and that the presentation will be like a mix of Wedding Crashers and Karan Johar's brand of cinema.
