Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon are busy promoting their film 'Bhediya'. For one of the promotional events, the actors graced Colors TV's popular reality show Bigg Boss 16 and met the host, superstar Salman Khan.
Colors TV has released a video promo on Instagram which features Kriti and Varun having a fun banter with Salman on the sets of the show.
The promo starts with all the three actors trying the wolf 'howl'. Post this, Kriti explains Salman how Varun becomes Bhediya in the film: "Ye jab Bhediya banta hai film mein... iske 'bum' pe kaata tha" (He becomes a wolf after being bitten by one on his bum). Hearing this, a shocked Salman looks at Varun who says "Par main aapko bum pe nahin kaatunga, haath pe kaatunga" (But I won't bite you on the bum, I'll bite on your hand).
Salman then bends to one side and replies: "Nahin kaatna hai tujhe toh tu bum pe kaat, Bhediya jahaan kaat ta hai wahin kaat" (No, if you want to bite, do it on the bum. Like a wolf).
After this, the trio burst out laughing and Kriti and Varun make Salman dance to the song 'Thumkeshwari' from Bhediya.
Directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan, Bhediya follows the story of Bhaskar (played by Varun Dhawan) who gets bitten by a wolf at a mysterious night that comes only once in a year. Because of that bite, he starts acquiring the characteristics of the wolf, further turning into a complete wolf on full moon nights.
The third installment in Dinesh Vijan's horror comedy universe after Stree (2018) and Roohi (2021), Bhediya is slates to release on 25 November 2022.
