The young turks of Bollywood are keeping their fans engaged with their social media post and prep for their upcoming films. Varun Dhawan, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday, Tiger Shroff and Nushrratt Bharuccha are breaking the internet with their work commitments and social media game, keeping their fans excited. Here’s what they are up to:

Varun Dhawan starts prep for Sriram Raghavan’s ‘Ekkis’

Varun Dhawan, who is known to work long and hard if needed to get into the skin of his character, will slip into prep mode for filmmaker Sriram Raghavan’s Ekkis soon. Till the end of 2020, Varun was busy shooting for Raj Mehta’s Jug Jugg Jeeyo with Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor, and Neetu Kapoor. Talking about Ekkis, Sriram says, “We have been prepping for the film as much as possible. The pre-production work has been on, but now we have to work around the new scheme of things. Weather-wise, we would have liked to start the film last September and wrap up by now, but the lockdown just pushed everything ahead.”

The director, who had earlier worked with Varun in Badlapur, further said, “After completing his pending commitments, Varun will start preparing for his role in Ekkis from May this year. He has to lose weight, take the training that’s meant for army officers, spend some time at the National Defence Academy (NDA) and go through the grind to prepare for his role. We intend to start shooting in September 2021 and complete the film by January 2022, because weather-wise it works well for the film. That’s the timeline we are following right now. In the meantime, we’re also working out our plan for the VFX of the film and how scenes will be shot because we have to recreate a specific time zone.”

Ekkis will be produced by Dinesh Vijan under the banner of Maddock films.

Siddhant Chaturvedi seeks the Almighty’s blessing at Golden Temple, Amritsar

A source close to the actor shares, “Siddhant started the year by seeking blessings at the Golden Temple, he always wanted to go there and this time he was there at the start of the year. His schedule for the year is busy, he will be shooting back to back for 3 films and is in talks for more projects. Siddhant's mother also wanted to accompany him to visit the Golden Temple and seek blessings but she couldn't make it due to the current circumstances of the pandemic. He video called his mother from there and made sure she sought blessings virtually."
