Varun Dhawan is currently gearing up for the much awaited multi-starrer Kalank, directed by Abhishek Varman. He actor also has ‘Super Dancer 3D’, ‘Coolie No 1’ and Shashank Khaitan’s next lined up in his kitty. And now, according to the latest news, the actor is reportedly in talks for a project in which the actor will be essaying the role of Arun Khetarpal. The project is tentatively titled Ekkis.
Talking about it, a source was quoted saying to a daily, “Sriram Raghavan, who has brought out a different facet to Varun’s talent with ‘Badlapur’, is extremely fond of the actor’s choices. He is currently busy finishing writing the script of his next film which happens to be a biopic. Titled ‘Ekkis’, it will be produced by Dinesh Vijan. The Gen Y star has been spotted several times at Maddock office which also was the reason why many claimed he might replace Rajkummar Rao in ‘Stree 2’. But it’s not the case. He’s being considered for this film instead.”
Coming back to the film, ‘ Ekkis’ will be a biopic based on Param Vir Chakra awardee, Arun Khetarpal, who fought valiantly for the country during the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war and sacrificed his life in the process. He was just 21; hence the film has been titled ‘Ekkis’.
Well, won’t it be interesting to watch Varun step into the shoes of Arun Khetrapal?
