Varun Sharma who made his Bollywood debut in Fukrey that released in 2013 and later entertained the audience with his quirky role in Chhichhore that hit the theatres in 2019. Now the actor is all set to flash on big screen with his upcoming movie Roohi. The trailer of his film titled Roohi was released recently. The horror-comedy sees Sharma tickling the funny bones of his fans yet again. His new look, impressive act and quirky dynamic with his co-stars Rajkummar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor in the trailer have already impressed the netizens.
Sharma reveals that playing quirky characters brings him joy and he sinks his teeth into them by being a keen observer. “You see characters like Choocha and Sexa around you in your circle and neighbourhood. They are very real. And that’s the fun part of it. The quirkiness and uniqueness of these characters drive me towards doing something mad, fun and entertaining. These characters are loved by the audience and are appreciated and that’s the biggest blessing for any actor,” he says.
Sharma promises that Roohi is going to be a rollercoaster ride for the audience. Ask him about his process of preparing for the part and he says, “I had to learn the language and make it my own. It is not the north Indian or Punjabi tongue that I normally speak. In Roohi, I speak in an Uttar Pradesh accent. Apart from language, grasping the characteristic attributes and madness of the character formed a part of the prep.”
The film starring Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor, Varun Sharma, and Alexx O’Nell tells the story of a ghost who abducts brides on their honeymoons. The comedy horror film is directed by Hardik Mehta and produced by Dinesh Vijan under the banner Maddock Films.
