Varun Dhawan and Sriram Raghavan’s ‘Ekkis’, based on the life of Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, is apparently on hold, BizAsiaLive.com has learnt.
The film was supposed to roll in 2022 but it seems it may not be going to plan. A source told Pinkvilla, “Because of the subject, Ekkis has to be mounted on a large scale. But considering the ongoing pandemic, rise in Omicron cases, the following restrictions, and the safety of the cast and crew of the film, the makers have decided to put the film on hold for now. They will kickstart the project again after the third wave dies down. Ekkis is a very important movie for the makers and they don’t want to compromise on it on any front”.
Raghavan is also making ‘Merry Christmas’ with Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi. Dhawan also has a number of films coming up such as ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’ and Said Nadiadwala’s next.
