Varun says no to ‘clichéd comedies’
I’m a huge admirer of Diljit and love his journey as an actor... He has taken comedy to a different space VARUN SHARMA, ACTOR
Being a true blue Punjabi, Fukrey (2013) actor Varun Sharma (above) is always eager to do films in his language. Having done Yaaran Da Katchup in 2014, the 27-year-old says that the offers he received recently from the industry weren’t good enough.
“Look at the films such as Punjab 1984 (2014), Bambukat (2016) and Manje Bistre (2017). Undoubtedly, it’s a good time to be a part of the Punjabi film industry. Of late, I had got a few offers to play comic characters but none of them were appealing. I have no problem with the genre, but I am against clichéd comedy. I want to explore films with good content,” says Varun.
The actor is also keen on working with leading Punjabi stars Diljit Dosanjh (inset) and Gippy Grewal. “I’m a huge admirer of Diljit and love his journey as an actor and as a singer. I feel he has taken comedy to a different space. There’s so much to learn from him. We met a couple of times and he is a wonderful soul. I would love to work with Gippy Grewal too. He is an entertaining actor,” he adds.
