Varun Sharma’s character Choocha from Fukrey became an instant success with the audience. The character along with Varun received a lot of love from the audience and critics at large. In a chat with Indian Express, Varun said, “When Fukrey and Fukrey Returns released, my character Choocha became so big and so loved. There was a pressure to perform the other characters in other films in a better way. It eventually happened with Chhichore’s Sexa. So, there is a constant work behind making a character better than the character I played in my previous film.”

Speaking further about the process of playing Choocha, Varun said, “It is a special character for me, of course. My career happened because of this film. However, to play Choocha, I had to unlearn a lot of things because when I started off, I had no idea and was fresh. Over the years, I have learned a lot about the craft. So, the challenge is to unlearn and bring that rawness to the character, which I had in Fukrey (2013).”

Varun shared his thoughts on being a host of the IPL related show and said, “It is a great initiative. All of us are cricket fanatics. We love watching it. Every year, we wait for IPL to entertain us. Blending cricket with entertainment is a great thought. It is like watching cricket with a bunch of friends, talking about the nostalgic moments and the gully cricket culture. So, we are having a lot of fun.”
