Sunil Varma keen to play villain
Chennai: Sunil Varma, who is currently enjoying his recently acquired status of a lead actor, says he doesn't mind playing a villain if a good opportunity comes his way.
"I always aspired to be a villain in top directors' films. I've always been a fan of filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli, and wished to play a villain in his films. I never got that opportunity but had the privilege of being introduced in a lead role by him in his film 'Maryada Ramanna'," Sunil told us.
"Even if I land an opportunity to play a villain in Rajamouli's film today, I would happily do it. In fact, I don't mind playing a villain in other films as well, provided I get strong roles," he said.
Having started his career as a comedian with films such as 'Nuvvu Naaku Nachavu' and 'Nuvvu Nenu', Sunil in the last couple of years had starred in a lead role in 'Tadakha' and 'Mr. Pellikoduku'.
Although he misses playing comic roles, he is happy with his career.
"I remember doing nearly 10 films a year as a comedian, but now as a hero it becomes difficult to even do two films in a year. I don't mind doing few films as long as I'm happy with my roles and audiences like my work," said Sunil.
The 39-year old is currently getting ready to star in a mythological drama titled 'Bhakta Kannappa'.
