Varun Dhawan, who is gearing up for his upcoming project ‘VD 18’, on Sunday revealed he had suffered a leg injury.

Taking time out from his busy schedule, Dhawan took to his Instagram stories and posted a picture of his swollen  leg. The actor captioned the picture, “Swollen shin banged it into an iron.”

The yet-to-be-titled film is directed by Kalees and produced by Atlee and Murad Khetani. The film also stars Keerthy Suresh and Wamiqa Gabbi.

Excited about the project, Wamiqa said in a statement: “Being a part of ‘VD18’ is a thrilling experience for me. Collaborating with exceptional talents like Varun Dhawan and Keerthy Suresh under Atlee sir’s visionary direction is a creative journey I’m eager to explore. I have been and will always be eternally grateful to 2023, the year that plunged things to new beginnings. And to end the year by being on sets now for my next is truly the perfect curtain call for the year. The moments like these remind me why I love what I do, and I can’t wait for audiences to witness the magic we are creating on screen.”

The makers have not officially any details regarding the project yet.
