Here’s Why Varun Dhawan Opted Out Of Sriram Raghavan’s Ikkis. Details Inside!

Varun Dhawan's absence from the cast of Sriram Raghavan's war hero biopic Ikkis has sparked a lot of discussion.

Director Sriram Raghavan’s Ikkis, produced by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films, will depict the life of Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal PVC, an Indian war hero. The surprise was that Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agastya Nanda will star in the movie, which was announced on Dharmendra’s birthday.

Varun Dhawan’s absence from the cast of Sriram Raghavan’s war hero biopic Ikkis has sparked a lot of discussion about whether or not he has a beef with either producer Dinesh Vijan or director Raghavan. “It’s nothing like that. Varun’s relations have not changed with either Dinesh or Sriram. In fact, Dinesh Vijan and Varun are planning another film after Bhediya,” said its source.

“The age factor,” its source added. “The Param Vir Chakra winning soldier Arun Khetarpal on whom the film is based died defending our country at 21. Varun is now 35. So chronologically they don’t match. When Ikkis was announced three years ago Sriram thought he would pull it off with Varun. But now everyone felt the actor playing Arun Khetarpal must be younger. Agastya is just the right age to play Arun Khetarpal. Besides that, the boy is hugely talented.”
