The actor will be seen playing the role of Arun Khetarpal who was martyred at an young age
Varun recently turned 33 years old but then he will soon be going back to his twenties when he starts shooting for the film Ekkees where he plays a 21-year-old army man in the biopic of Arun Khetarpal who was awarded the Param Vir Chakra posthumously.
“It basically means that Varun would have to look much younger than his age as well and hence the actor is experimenting with a lot of looks at home these days, trying to see how young he can look. Varun had played a teenager when he made his debut in Bollywood with the Karan Johar directed film Student of the Year in 2012. But he was eight years younger then. The audiences have also seen him for a while and he will need to make an effort to lose weight at the right places,” says our source.
Varun’s last two films Kalank as well as Street Dancer 3D failed badly at the box office and now the actor is being careful about his choice of films.
The actor will be seen next in Coolie No 1 along with Sara Ali Khan, being directed by his filmmaker father David Dhawan who has given him two hits earlier in the form of Main Tera Hero and Judwaa 2.
