Varun Dhawan, Sriram Raghavan to reunite for Ekkis?
The film is said to be based on the life of Arun Khetarpal, the youngest recipient of the Param Vir Chakra
Four years after Badlapur, Varun Dhawan and Sriram Raghavan are likely to reunite for an upcoming biopic. Titled Ekkis, the film is based on Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, a 21-year-old Indian Army officer who was killed in action during the Indo-Pak of 1971. For his wartime exploits, Arun Khetarpal was posthumously awarded the Param Vir Chakra, India’s highest military decoration, making him the youngest recipient of the award.
As per the buzz, the filmmaker is in the process of finishing the script. The film will be produced by Dinesh Vijan, who also produced Badlapur.
Varun has a number of projects lined up for this year, including Kalank, Street Dancer 3D and the Coolie No. 1 remake.
Sriram Raghavan’s last directorial, Andhadhun, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, was a critical and commercial success. The film recently crossed the Rs 100 crore mark at the China box office.
