Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agastya Nanda to feature with Dharmendra in Sriram Raghavan’s Ikkis – Times of India

The director of acclaimed films like Badlapur and Andhadhun, Sriram Raghavan is making his next film Ikkis, with Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agastya Nanda and acting legend Dharmendra. The project was announced by the film’s producer Dinesh Vijan, today on Dharmendra‘s 86th birthday.

Ikkis is a war-drama based on the life of Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal who was also awarded the Param Vir Chakra. Khetarpal is the youngest recipient of the Param Vir Chakra and his contribution to the 1971 war with Pakistan has been spoken of with awe and reverence over the years.

Ikkis will feature Dharmendra in a prominent role with young Agastya Nanda playing the lead. The film will be going on floor next year. Dharmendra and Sriram Raghavan have also collaborated before in the 2008 thriller Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, which featured Neil Nitin Mukesh in the lead.

It will be interesting to see how young Agastya teams up with Dharmendra, considering Agastya’s grandfather Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra have had such a strong legacy of films together.
