Comedian Sunil Varma became a hero with the movie Andala Ramudu in 2006, but it was SS Rajamouli's 2010 Blockbuster film Maryada Ramanna that catapult him into stardom. After this huge success, the actor has played hero in a few films and has been considered for several other projects. But the actor says that he is a big fan of Rajamouli and he would love to play villain in his movies.
In a statement of IANS, Sunil Varma said, "I always aspired to a villain in top directors' films. I've always been a fan of filmmaker SS 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 Varma says if he gets a strong role, he is ready to appear as villain in other directors' films too. The comedy actor added, "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."
Having started his career as a comedian with films such as Nuvvu Naaku Nachavu and Nuvvu Nenu, Sunil has played lead roles in Tadakha and Mr Pellikoduku in the last couple of years. Although he misses playing comic roles, he is happy with his career. He is currently getting ready to star in a mythological drama titled Bhakta Kannappa.
The actor said, "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."
