According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, Varun says that playing a soldier has been his dream always. Speaking on the same, he said, “When I heard Arun Khetarpal’s story I was awed that this could have actually happened! I understood then why Dinoo(Dinesh Vijan) ad Sriram are so passionate about it. When I met Arun’s brother Mukesh, I was moved. I too have a brother and I can’t understand what he must have gone through” he added, “And it’s our responsibility to tell it correctly. This is the most important film of my career and I’m excited to start work with Sriram again. I hope all Indians will feel as proud when they see our story unfold on screen.”

The ‘Badlapur’ trio producer Dinesh Vijan, director Sriram Raghavan and actor Varun Dhawan are coming back together for Arun Khetrapal’s biopic. Dinesh Vijan said that Arun Khetarpal is one of the most celebrated lieutenants of Poona Horse’s. He says he was enamoured by Arun’s bravery when he heard from his brother about him. But, what connected with him was Arun’s bond with his father. He says that he will want to highlight the bond between Aruna and his father. He said that it is a big responsibility to make his biopic. He said, “We are indebted to the family and to the Poona Horse regiment for allowing us the honour of telling Arun’s story. We hope to make them proud.”
On the work front, Varun Dhawan is currently occupied with ‘Street Dancer 3D’ and ‘Coolie No. 1’. Once he is done with these two, he will begin work on the biopic.
