Varun Sharma has got to be one of the most funniest man on screen and now he is all set to tickle our funny bones with IPL this season. A little birdy tells us that the actor has been approached by an OTT platform to do a special collaboration for the second edition of the upcoming IPL season.
Sources suggest that Varun will put his cricket knowledge to work as he will turn host for the season. Now, we can expect to be enthralled by his witty comments.
According to a source-
Varun will be shooting from the Star Sports office from the 19th. He has been roped in to do live commentary for matches. This time the channel wants to engage the audience to give them a heightened experiential feel of the match. Considering the on ground audience might be curtailed due to covid protocols, the channel wants to offer an intimate vibe to its viewers. Varun’s affability was a big draw for them. His next-door-boy relatability factor coupled with his interest in the sport made them get Sharma on board.
For the unversed, Varun is the first Bollywood actor to be signed on to host the IPL.
