Varun Dhawan is all set with his upcoming number of films that are lined up for release. As he finished the shooting of Coolie No.1 recently, the actor was gearing up for the shoots of Ekkis in which he will be seen starring opposite Sriram Raghavan. However, according to a report in the latest website, the shooting of the film has been halted due to the pandemic, and now it'll be shot next year.
A source told the website, "Sriram's film is a major war drama that needs to be shot extensively in different parts of India. Plus, it will need several actors because it is a period film based on the India-Pakistan faceoff. With limitations to have only 50 people maximum on the sets, it's not feasible to shoot a film of this scale. Although CGI could have been an option, Sriram didn't want to compromise on his storytelling. The film was expected to kick off some time now, but it will now happen only in the latter half of 2021."
It is not the only film that Varun has in his kitty. He also has films such as Bhediya and also a Sajid Nadiadwala's film. "Varun has Raj Mehta's next and Amar Kaushik's Bhediya which will start back-to-back. After that, he has signed Sajid Nadiadwala's next production venture Sanki which is an action-comedy that goes on the floors next year after he completes these two films. Only after he finishes all the three films, he will move on to Sriram's next. He loved the script and it will be the first time he will play a man in uniform, so Varun also wants this film to be shot the way it needs to be shot, " the source added.
