Reportedly, the actor has started prepping for the role for ‘Ekkis’ around two years ago. According to reports, the film will start rolling in February 2022. Varun will reportedly begin acting sessions with the film's director in November. He'll study body language, diction, and many war-related acts.
The film will reportedly start shooting in the early months of 2022. The makers have said earlier that they do not want to compromise because the film on the life of a hero like Arun Khetrapal deserves the best.
Meanwhile, Varun was last seen in the comedy-drama Coolie No. 1. The film, which was released on Amazon Prime video was a failure critically and commercially. The actor will shortly finish filming for Raj Mehta's 'Jug Jugg Jeeyo.' Aside from that, he'll be seen in Amar Kaushik's 'Bhediya' and Sajid Nadiadwala's 'Sanki.'
