Varun may have managed to maintain a balance between commercial and off-beat films, but the actor said that trying something new still scares him.
The actor, who has opted for Shoojit Sircar's October as his next, said that desire to become a better performer makes him overcome his fears.
"Performing on heights and do something new is always a bit scary but then I just go back to why I wanted to be an actor and I overcome it," Varun said in a Q & A session on Twitter.
The 30-year-old actor had two major hits -- "Badrinath Ki Dulhania" and "Judwaa" in 2017 and before the year ends he is planning to make some difficult career choices.
"It's been great really wonderful with the success been trying to make some tough decisions before the year ends," he said.
"October" will hit the screens on April 13.
