Varun Dhawan Reunites With Filmmaker Sriram Raghavan

Mohnish Singh|Oct 14, 2019

Varun Dhawan has joined forces with filmmaker Sriram Raghavan for a biopic based on second lieutenant Arun Khetarpal.

Varun Dhawan, who was last seen in Dharma Productions’ Kalank (2019), is presently awaiting the release of his next film Street Dancer 3D.

Ever since he made his acting debut with Dharma Productions’ Student of the Year (2012), Varun Dhawan has explored various genres, from romance to comedy to action. The young heartthrob is now taking up the real-life role of Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal in his next film.

The upcoming project reunites him with filmmaker Sriram Raghavan and producer Dinesh Vijan after Badlapur (2015).

Talking about the reunion, excited Varun Dhawan says, “Playing a soldier has always been my dream. After I heard Arun Khetrapal’s story. I was honestly shocked that this could actually happen!  I understood why Dinoo and Sriram were so passionate about it.

And after I met Arun’s brother Mukesh Khetarpal, I was moved, I too have a brother and I can’t fathom what he must have gone through. This is a story which needs to be told and it’s a responsibility for us to tell it correctly.

This is the most important film of my career and I’m so excited to start work with Sriram again. I hope all Indians will feel proud once they hear this story.”

Revealing what led him to produce the film, producer Dinesh Vijan says, “Arun Khetarpal was one of Poona horse’s most celebrated lieutenants. When Mukesh Khetarpal (brother) narrated his story in Delhi, we were already enamoured by his bravery but what connected me more was Arun’s equation with his father, the bond that one share with his father is usually left unsaid.

I lost my father 5 years ago and I miss him every day, with this film I hope to shine some light on the boy who became a man, a reflection of his father. it’s a huge responsibility to make this biopic, we are indebted to the family and to the Poona horse regiment for allowing us the honour of telling Arun’s story and we hope to make them proud.”
