Comedian Sunil Varma keen to play villain

Chennai: Comedian-turned-actor 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 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 said.

"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`.
