Varun"s latest film, Maro Charitra, is due for release soon. The film is a rehashed remake of the earlier Maro Charitra which starred Kamal Haasan. In this version, Varun plays an NRI, and the entire unit was convinced that the role was tailor-made for him. By his own admission, he earned the image of a lover-boy after his role in Happy Days, but it was his performance in Kurradu, which boosted his career. “I am not afraid of failure," says Varun, “there is a healthy competitive atmosphere in the Telugu film industry. It gets tough sometimes with the entry of new stars from film star families, but there are always producers who are willing to work with talented, new artistes."
