Ac­tor Varun Sharma (above), who has been known for com­edy films such as Fukrey (2013) and Dolly Ki Doli, says that he never in­tended to do com­edy. How­ever, Fukrey was a turn­ing point for him. “Af­ter the film, life shifted from au­di­tions to nar­ra­tions. I never thought that I would do com­edy. I used to be a part of se­ri­ous plays dur­ing my the­atre days. In Fukrey also, the char­ac­ter wants to be taken se­ri­ously, but the writ­ing was funny,” he says.

While he agrees that the genre is chal­leng­ing, Varun is happy with the space he is in. “Ev­ery­one says that com­edy is a tough genre, but aren’t then all gen­res tough? I don’t think I will ever leave com­edy. It is be­cause of this genre that I have got ap­pre­ci­a­tion and it would be wrong to leave it,” he says.

Talk­ing about his up­com­ing Ro­hit Shetty di­rec­to­rial, Varun says that he is ea­gerly wait­ing for the film. “I am so ex­cited to be in a Ro­hit Shetty film. He makes his ac­tors so com­fort­able and also helped me dur­ing my scenes. Shah Rukh and Ka­jol ma’am (his co-stars in the film) also helped us. It is a fun film,” he says.

Mean­while, the ac­tor is cur­rently in Delhi for some work. “I was hop­ing that it would be colder by now. But this is also win­ters for me. I can go and brag about it in Mum­bai,” he says.
