Zee 5 Original, The Story, has already become the talk of the town, thanks to its format, where celebs narrate bizarre, humorous and terrifying incidents from their personal lives.
After the Swara Bhaskar, Sumeet Vyas, Mallika Sherawat episodes, get ready to see the worst nightmare in the life of Fukrey actor, Varun Sharma. The series is produced by Victor Tango Productions.
Being a struggling actor back then, he was once completely fooled by some creative people. Do watch the episode and see how he eventually turned the tables on them.
“It was really enjoyable, for I got to relive the moments when I first came to Mumbai. The way I was treated, the running and the madness of cracking things was indeed memorable. My gang and I would gate-crash wedding and parties, since they would serve good grub. I was very lucky to find buddies who were ready to go out on a limb for me, as you will see in the story.”
“It is not easy to make it big in Mumbai, but then I don’t really dwell on my struggle, for I regard it not as such, but as a learning curve. Forget this industry, the moment you step out of any comfort zone, you will find the going tough at first, for you don’t know the whats and whys of that place. I enjoy this process of finding one’s feet.”
“Having said that, the worst part of our line is that you can’t fib that you are working, when you are not, for the truth is out there for all to see.”
Talking about the digital format, he says, “The medium is growing really fast and the content on offer, both fiction and non-fiction, is very interesting. I would love to act in one full-fledged web series, if the script is quirky and interesting.”
