‘Ekkis’, the biopic on Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, will see the reunion of Varun Dhawan and Sriram Raghavan. It’s thought that the film will commence in February next year.
“This is among the most ambitious projects of Varun’s career and the actor has been in prep more all through the last two years, learning more and more about the traits of an army officer. As Jug Jug Jeeyo nears completion, Varun is excited to slip into the first biopic of his career”, said a source, talking to Pinkvilla.
As it would have been a challenge to shoot for the film during the pandemic, the film’s commencement was postponed since October 2020. The source added, “They didn’t want to compromise with the vision in any circumstances as a war hero like Arun Kheterpal deserves a fitting tribute. With vaccination drives in full swing and the on-ground scenario getting better by the day, the team of Ekkis is bullish about shooting from early 2022”.
Dhawan will be seen next in ‘Bhediya’ and he’s also in a song in ‘Antim: The Final Truth’.
