Tentatively titled Arun, the biopic will trace Khetarpal's journey who attained martyrdom at 21 during the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971. Writer Ritesh Shah of Pink (2016) fame will pen the script. "Arun Khetarpal is the youngest recipient of the Param Vir Chakra. We are reading all the literature available, because, it is a huge responsibility to make a film with such an inspirational message," said Dinesh Vijan who is producing the drama.

The script is likely to be finalised in the coming weeks, post which Sriram Raghavan will begin the casting process. The film is expected to go on floors next June.
