Varshita S1-5Watch full episodes
Eve D’Souza’s Varshita and Maqbul Mohammed’s Donovan are a match made in heaven – or hell. In Varshita, this on-screen pair is as self-destructive as any dysfunctional couple can get. A spin-off of Auntie Boss, Varshita follows toxic lovebirds Donovan and Varshita, who are now married and living under the same roof, while also driving each other insane daily. Psychotic as Varshita is, it’s a role that D’Souza has learned to embrace, saying in a past interview that it has helped her step out of her comfort zone and to stretch her abilities as an actor.
At the Kalasha Awards 2020, Varshita, finally won Best TV Comedy after missing out for two years in a row, beating 2019 winner Nyanya Rukia and 2017 winner Hullabaloo Estate. Varshita also scooped Best Performance in a TV Comedy for Mukami Njiru.
Varshita is produced by Lucy Mwangi, the woman behind other beloved local comedies like the Kalasha-nominated Njoro wa Uba and Auntie Boss which earned its lead Nyce Wanjeri an AMVCA for Best Actress in a Comedy in 2018.
