The year 2015 was a great one for Varun Dhawan. He tasted success with Badlapur and ABCD 2. Even though Dilwale failed to live up to audience expectations, the actor was pretty satisfied with the response.

Now, according to a Daily Bhaskar report, Varun is in talks with director Rajiv Rai to reprise Dev Anand's iconic character of an undercover CID agent, Sohan, in the remake of the yesteryear classic, Johny Mera Naam.
