We all are aware that Varun Dhawan is working on a hs Dad’s movie Coolie No 1 remake. On one of his latest interviews, he opened up on his next project which is based on Arun Khetarpal Biopic the 2nd Lieutenant. Apart from this, he also confirmed that this movie will be directed by Sriram Raghavan, but the name of the movie is yet to be confirmed.
During an interview with DNA, he said “When I heard Arun Khetarpal’s story I was awed that this could have actually happened! I understood then why Dinoo (Dinesh Vijan) and Sriram are so passionate about it. When I met Arun’s brother Mukesh, I was moved. I too have a brother and I can understand what he must have gone through.”
