Varun Dhawan is one of the finest actors of the tinsel town known for his hard work. If needed, the actor leaves no stone unturned to get into the skin of the character. This time, he is all set to star in Sriram Raghavan’s Ekkis.
Till now, the actor was busy shooting for his upcoming film Jug Jugg Jeeyo under the direction of Raj Mehta. In this film, he will share the screen space with Kiara Advani and Neetu Kapoor.
About the film Ekkis, the filmmaker said, “We have been prepping for the film as much as possible. The pre-production work has been on, but now we have to work around the new scheme of things. Weather-wise, we would have liked to start the film last September and wrap up by now, but the lockdown just pushed everything ahead.”
The director worked with Badlapur, he added, “After completing his pending commitments, Varun will start preparing for his role in Ekkis from May this year. He has to lose weight, take the training that’s meant for army officers, spend some time at the National Defence Academy (NDA) and go through the grind to prepare for his role. We intend to start shooting in September 2021 and complete the film by January 2022, because weather-wise it works well for the film. That’s the timeline we are following right now. In the meantime, we’re also working out our plan for the VFX of the film and how scenes will be shot because we have to recreate a specific time zone.”
