Varun Dhawan returns with David Dhawan for 'Hai Jawani Toh Ishq Hona Hai' comedy, set for October 2025 release

Varun Dhawan teams up with director David Dhawan once again for the uproarious comedy 'Hai Jawani Toh Ishq Hona Hai,' set to release on October 2, 2025, starring alongside Mrunal Thakur and Sreeleela in leading roles. According to initial reports from Pinkvilla, this marks the fourth collaboration between Varun and David Dhawan, following their successful ventures in 'Main Tera Hero,' 'Judwaa 2,' and 'Coolie No.1.'

Touted as a vibrant family entertainer, the film will showcase a love triangle involving Varun, Mrunal Thakur, and Sreeleela. A source close to the production revealed that the quirky title reflects David Dhawan's vision for a fresh and original comedy that promises to bring back the magic of classic Bollywood comedies. Filming commenced recently in Mumbai, with Varun sharing screen space with Maniesh Paul and Kubbra Sait in the initial schedules.

Produced by Ramesh Taurani under TIP Entertainment, "Hai Jawani Toh Ishq Hona Hai" is poised to deliver a typical David Dhawan extravaganza, complete with vibrant colors, peppy music, and a star-studded ensemble cast. Before this laugh riot, Varun Dhawan will be seen in 'Baby John,' produced by Murad Khetani and Atlee, slated for Christmas 2024, followed by "Sunny Sanskari Ki Dulhania," a Karan Johar production starring alongside Janhvi Kapoor on April 19, 2025.

For fans of David Dhawan's repertoire, "Hai Jawani Toh Ishq Hona Hai" is a nod to the hit chartbuster from the 90s featured in Dhawan's own directorial 'Biwi No. 1,' starring Salman Khan, Karishma Kapoor, and Sushmita Sen.
