After tickling our funny bone and reprising Govinda's role in the 1995 comedy remake Coolie No.1, Varun Dhawan is all set to explore new territory with Sriram Raghavan's Ekkees, where the actor will be seen essaying the role of Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal. The film is a biopic of the Indian Army officer who is also a recipient of the Param Vir Chakra and a name that has brought laurels to the country. Varun Dhawan has always been an audience favourite star and has proved his mettle as an actor, acing across an array of different genres.

The actor is said to begin shooting for Ekkees in May next year after the release of Coolie No.1 as he wishes to complete his first project before jumping on to another one. Recently, the producer Dinesh Vijan revealed that Ekkees is going to be a big-ticket film and the team has started the pre-production work on it. The film is slated to go on floors by next year. The film will reunite Varun Dhawan and Sriram Raghavan once again after their action thriller Badlapur released in 2015.

Varun has displayed his rugged side in films like Badlapur and Kalank. We have seen him make the audience laugh with his comic timing and give them goosebumps with his intense roles and now we can't wait to see him explore his unseen side in the biopic of Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal. The titled of the film hasn't been officially declared yet but reports say that it will be called Ekkees as the brave army officer was aged 21 when he was martyred. The poster and the first look of the film are believed to be out in December.
