Varun Sharma who got an amazing response for his performance in the film was allegedly said to stereotyped by many. But in his recent interview he revealed how he will try and do different genres for his upcoming films.
He said, “But I really wish I get a chance to explore myself and do different shades like drama or thriller as it really kicks me. When I was doing theatre, I used to be a part of serious plays. So, it has only been with Fukrey that I got a chance to do something in comedy.”
“Before Fukrey, no one thought I could do comedy or make people laugh. In 2018, you will see a lot of different shades and characters of me,” he added.
The comedy film features Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh, Varun Sharma, Priya Anand, Vishakha Singh and Pankaj Tripathi.
Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, Fukrey Returns is co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sindhwani under their banner Excel Entertainment.
