Our source reveals, “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.”

‘Ekkis’ happens to be a biopic 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’. It will be interesting to see Varun step into his shoes for sure.
