Varun Dhawan is one of the most successful stars of his generation making hit after hit. But filmmaker Sriram Raghavan says he would make sure to treat the star like a newcomer on their upcoming biopic on the youngest Param Vir Chakra recipient Arun Khetarpal.
The pair, who have previously worked together on crime drama ‘Badlapur’ (2015), recently announced that they will be reuniting for the real-life story to be produced by Dinesh Vijan.
“He has to lose weight, he has to work on the physicality. He has to go through a lot of training be it physical, the army kind of training. He has to go through and learn what the real guys do. It is much more real. It is an army film, so we want to be authentic. We are working that out now (training at army camps).”
Raghavan said the team is leaving no stone unturned to get all the facts and information right for the biopic, reports Mid Day. “Every film has it’s own challenges. For this film, we are making sure to get everything correct. We have got information from the family,” he added.
The director said the first look poster of the movie will be released either in December or January and the film will go on floors early next year.
