Ahead Of Roohi's Release, Varun Sharma Opens Up About His Quirky Characters
The trailer of Varun Sharma's Roohi released recently. The horror-comedy sees the actor tickling the funny bones of his fans yet again. His look, acting and quirky dynamic with his co-stars have left fans impressed already. Speaking of his character, Varun revealed that playing quirky characters bring him joy.
Varun Sharma's character in Roohi
Varun revealed that he sinks his teeth into his character by being a keen observer. He says that one could see characters like Choocha (Fukrey) and Sexa (Chhichhore) around them in their circle and neighbourhood. They are very real and that is the fun part of it. The quirkiness and uniqueness of those characters drove him towards doing something mad, fun and entertaining. Those characters were loved by audiences and were appreciated and that is the biggest blessing for any actor.
He promised that Roohi will be a rollercoaster ride for the audience. When asked about the process of preparing for the part, he said that he had to learn the language and make it his own. It is not the north Indian or Punjabi tongue that he normally spoke. In Roohi, he spoke in an Uttar Pradesh accent. "Apart from language, grasping the characteristic attributes and madness of the character formed a part of the prep," Sharma said.
