For Varun Sharma, completing a decade of the release of Fukrey is a cause for double celebrations as it also marks the actor’s ten-year journey in Bollywood. The actor credits the character of Choocha in the comedy that opened the doors of fame and success for him.

Actor Varun Sharma made his Bollywood debut with Fukrey playing the character of Choocha in the film.

“It is one of the biggest blessings for me to debut with a film like Fukrey and a character like Choocha,” says Sharma, adding, “The biggest challenge for any actor is to be accepted by the audience, and this film and my character have given me that acceptance from the audience and the film fraternity. So, he will always have a special place in my heart.”

The 33-year-old calls it a “special feeling” to see how Choocha has made his way into the hearts of the public and continues to be loved even after 10 years.

“For me, as an actor, the kind of admiration and appreciation Choocha has received from the audience is nothing short of an achievement. The love I have today and everything I have received in the last 10 years is because of Fukrey. I am glad that I was able to show my talent in my first film. So yes, she gave me a lot and everything I have today is because of Choocha,” gushes the 33-year-old, who played a lovable and naive character in the Delhi-set story, where a group of four friends — who play actors Ali Fazal, Pulkit Samrat and Manjot Singh — go on an adventure after their plan to make easy money backfires.

After his debut project, Sharma has been involved in several projects such as; Dolly Ki Doli, Dilwale, Chhichhore, Roohi and Chutzpa. But shooting his first scene Fukrey it is what holds a permanent special place in his heart.

“Though all the memories of the shooting days of Fukrey are amazing, but if I have to pick one, it would be the first day of shooting the film at Miranda House in North Campus, Delhi. This will remain the most special feeling, as this was my entry point into the world I had dreamed of all my life. I had the opportunity to live this dream”, says the actor.

And another special memory is looking at his face on the poster for the first time. “I remember calling my mother and telling her about it and there was a pin-drop moment, after which she gave her blessings. That was the moment I realized the true meaning of the phrase ‘silence speaks volumes,’” he shares.

Before ending, Sharma gives an update on the third installment of the franchise. “We finished filming for Fukrey 3, and the film is currently in post-production. We are very excited about its release, which will be very soon. We can’t wait for people to see it,” he concludes.
