THIS New Age Star replaced Varun Dhawan in Arun Khetarpal biopic, Fans express disappointment

When people from the outside claim that life is simple for star kids, we couldn't agree more. Now consider this situation: Amitabh Bachchan's grandson Agastya Nanda has already signed his second picture with renowned filmmaker Sriram Raghavan, who revolutionised Varun Dhawan's career with Badlapur. Agastya Nanda is currently waiting for his first release alongside Suhana Khan and Khushi Kapoor. The movie, IKKIS, is a war drama based on the life of Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, according to reports .

Arun Khetarpal, a 21-year-old soldier, was a martyr in the Indo-Pak War of 1971

The Indian government awarded him the prestigious Param Veer Chakra posthumously. According to reports, Agastya will take on the role of soldier Arun and has already begun preparing for it. Well, the young man has taken on a tremendous amount of responsibilities.

Varun Dhawan was originally supposed to star in the biopic, but he declined because he was already committed to a number of other projects.

When asked why he decided against it, Varun reportedly said, "Every time we tried to start the film, we got hit by a wave. I was dying to do that film, but I don't think I can do it anymore because too many things have come up. Sriram went to his other film. It was simply impossible to shoot the movie during the pandemic

The movie's producers even announced on veteran actor Dharmendra's 87th birthday that he will be appearing in IKKIS and has a significant role; in the image, Agastya Nanda can be seen beaming broadly for the cameras. The lead child actor's most difficult picture will undoubtedly be this one. Agastya is Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter Shweta Nanda’s son and has chosen to follow his grandfather’s steps and entered the acting industry.
