Since Fukrey, Varun Sharma has carved a niche for himself as the relatable character who never fails to tickle audiences’ funny bone. However, the actor has set a new benchmark ‘Sexa’, the character he plays in Nitesh Tiwari’s Chhichhore. The film is based on the story of a group of friends and their journey from their engineering days in the 90s to an unexpected reunion.
In the film, Varun plays the role of Sexa, aka ‘College Ka Porn King’, whose collection of questionable magazines make him one of the most popular students on campus. Nailing the role of a ‘Chhichhora’ to perfection, Varun’s performance is getting rave reviews from both critics and audience alike. While some reviewers claimed that he ‘Stole the show’, ‘steals hearts’, many remarked that this performance cemented Varun’s bankability as a top-notch performer. Since Fukrey, the character of Choocha had stayed with the audience, and many still related to Varun as Choocha, however, with Chhichhore, Varun’s Sexa has made an indelible mark. Or as some audience remarked, Sexa is the new Choocha!
After Chhichhoery, Varun will be seen in RoohiAfza, which also stars Rajkummar Rao and Janhavi Kapoor.
