Varun Dhawan is to act in ‘Ekkis’, which is the biopic of Arun Khetarpal. It’s thought that Dhawan will be playing the 21-year-old army personnel which suggests that he will need to lose weight for the part.
“It basically means that Varun would have to look much younger than his age as well and hence the actor is experimenting with a lot of looks at home these days, trying to see how young he can look. Varun had played a teenager when he made his debut in Bollywood with the Karan Johar directed film Student of the Year in 2012. But he was eight years younger then. The audiences have also seen him for a while and he will need to make an effort to lose weight at the right places,” said a source, explaining to Deccan Chronicle. Khetarpal was awarded the Param Vir Chakra post-humously.
Dhawan will be seen directed by Sriram Raghavan in the film which is a Dinesh Vijan directorial.
