Actor Varun Sharma has just finished shooting for Fukrey Returns. The film is expected to hit theatres later this year.

Being a true blue Punjabi, Fukrey (2013) actor Varun Sharma is always eager to do Punjabi films. 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 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 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,” adds Varun, who will be next seen in Sushant Singh Rajput-Kriti Sanon Raabta. He plays the role of a happy-go-lucky character who is Sushant’s closest pal in the film.
