Mumbai buzzed with the recent return of Varun Sharma, a talent widely appreciated for his comedic flair, as the Fukrey star concluded filming his latest laugh riot, ‘Sab First Class’, in the vibrant fields of Punjab. This past week, the journey from set to city was timely enough to witness the announcement of his new movie ‘D’ as part of Netflix’s enticing lineup for 2024. However, it is the Wild Wild Punjab, directed by Samarpreet Singh and featuring a talented ensemble, including Jassie Gill, Manjot Singh, and Sunny Singh, that Sharma singles out as a work that will capture the hearts and funny bones of a youthful audience.

For Sharma, Wild Wild Punjab encapsulates the essence of a post-break-up escapade. According to the acclaimed actor, it is during such emotionally tumultuous times, accompanied by the crazy support of close friends, that the most epic road trips unfold—where chaos becomes comfort and the whimsical turns into therapy. “The film mirrors those raw emotions. Everyone, after a heartbreak, longs to declare their liberation from the past. My character’s quest is to muster the courage and humor to say ‘I am over you,'” chuckles Sharma, knowing full well the healing power of comedy.

Equipped with his breakout role as the endearing Choocha in Fukrey back in 2013, Varun Sharma has since seen his comedic prowess evolve. With each passing project, from the sprawling success of subsequent Fukrey chapters to the crowd favorite Chhichhore, his commitment to comedy has only deepened. This year, Sharma expresses his intent to stretch the boundaries of the genre further, by taking on roles that offer novel challenges and fresh laughs.

The shooting of ‘Sab First Class’, alongside talents Shehnaaz Gill and Kusha Kapila, has been a standout experience for Sharma. The genuine camaraderie shared off-screen among the friends bloomed on-screen, making the creative process all the more enjoyable. “When friends reunite for a project, it infuses the work with an effortless synergy, turning every scene into a delightful endeavor,” confesses Sharma on the collaborative atmosphere that manifests when friends share the artistic space.

Beyond these comedic ventures, Sharma is also set to grace screens in ‘Rumi Ki Sharafat’, a Dinesh Vijan production with its own charm and possibilities for laughs. His growing filmography is a testament to his versatility within the comedic genre and his fans eagerly await the innovative ways he will entertain them next.

As anticipation mounts for the release of both Wild Wild Punjab and Sab First Class, as well as the streaming of ‘D’ in the future year, audiences are poised to see this versatile actor take his approach to comedic performance to new heights. The invaluable blend of a natural talent for eliciting laughs, paired with a purposeful exploration of different comedic styles, positions Varun Sharma as a standout figure in the sphere of Indian cinema laughter.
