Actor Varun Sharma, who made his mark with the film ‘Fukrey’, has recently made his debut on the OTT platform. Varun played the character of a boy in a long-distance relationship in the web series ‘Chutzpah’. Let me tell you, all the projects that Varun has done in his career so far have been multi-starrers, be it ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’, ‘Dilwale’, ‘Roohi’ or ‘Chhichhore’. Varun, who has done about 17 films in his career, has not done any solo project so far.
Varun is very happy to be a part of multi starrer project
Varun said during a conversation with Dainik Bhaskar about this, “To be honest, I am very happy to be a part of such a multi-starrer project. For me, the story matters a lot and not who else is there in that film or series. -Who is. I wanted to be an actor since childhood, dreamed of seeing myself on film posters, wanted to be associated with good banners and with time, all these dreams came true. I am dreaming. Yes, but it is not that if a filmmaker comes to me with a solo character, I will not show interest in it. The character of the film is very important for me and I just want to entertain the audience. I Very happy and satisfied with my career graph.”
Varun is not afraid of being typecast
Amongst the films till date, Varun’s comic style has impressed the audience a lot. So do they have a fear of being typecast? To this he says, “Not at all. I used to do a lot of serious roles during my theater days, at that time I used to think that it is very difficult to make people laugh. That’s why I wanted to try myself in this genre. When ‘Fukrey’ did it managed to make the audience laugh. To be honest, I love making people laugh, I never thought I would ever be able to make them laugh. I am enjoying this phase a lot today and going forward too I will keep doing comedy. I have no fear of being typecast. So far each character’s style has been different from each other, be it sex, Sidhu or Choocha.”
The character of Chucha is very close to Varun’s heart.
Varun will also be a part of the next franchise of ‘Fukrey’. Regarding this, he says, “The preparations for the film have started, like everyone we are also waiting for the situation to be normal so that we can start the shoot. With this film I made my debut, the character of Chucha in Mere Dil. Very close to K. The kind of love that film has got, it doubles the responsibility of entertaining people. Audience’s expectations from us keep increasing, which is not wrong at all. Their expectations make us more than last time. They encourage us to work hard. That hope is our strength. Yes, there is pressure to live up to their expectations, but it is a healthy pressure. We would like to retain the ‘Fukrey’ franchise.”
There was a time when Varun became addicted to social media.
Expressing his views on the digital platform, Varun says, “I think ‘Chutzpah’ is a path breaking show and a different genre. In this we have explored the world of the internet and with this concept, making our debut on digital I consider you lucky. I am personally very connected to social media, but there was a time when I became addicted. I used to be on social media all the time, used internet which was not right. You everything I keep updating from time to time, but sometimes it becomes more than necessary. In such a situation I decided to take a break. I felt that it is fun to do some things in limit. Then I corrected my mistake. Now I am in the day I stay on social media only for a few hours. Let us tell you that the show ‘Chutjpah’ is written by Amit Babbar, which is directed by Simarpreet Singh.
