Fry­day ac­tor Varun Sharma: Was scared to do com­edy in front of Govinda

Asian Journal - - LIFE & MORE -

Varun Sharma has made a name for him­self in com­edy films but the ac­tor says he was re­ally scared when it came to per­form­ing with Govinda in Fry­day. Varun says he grew up watch­ing the Hero No 1 star and hence it was sur­real to fea­ture in the same frame for the film. “To do a film with Govinda, who is a leg­end in that genre, whose tim­ing is im­pec­ca­ble was chal­leng­ing. I knew it would be a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and I can tell my kids that I’ve done a film with Govinda! I was very scared to do com­edy with him,” Varun said. The Fukrey ac­tor says he jumped at the op­por­tu­nity to work with Govinda in the Ab­hishek Do­gra-di­rected film be­cause he is “such a huge fan boy.”

“I en­joy com­edy and it is some­thing which peo­ple like me do­ing so it was a no-brainer. But of course ini­tially I was very ner­vous. On the first day, I knew it would be chal­leng­ing as ev­ery­one is su­perb in com­edy- Govinda, San­jay Mishra. I had to leave a mark so I tried to match their level. Once ev­ery­thing went into a flow, then you get com­fort­able.”
