MUMBAI: Sunil Grover is one of the most popular actors in showbiz. He is known for his work in films and TV shows. The actor-comedian became a household name as Gutthi in Comedy Nights With Kapil.
Though he has earned name and fame, the journey has not been easy. In an interview, he spoke about his tough times and much more. When he was asked about the biggest learning from his share of struggles, he said to Times of India, “My journey has been full of surprises. If I look back, there have been many hurdles. I have been replaced from shows after shooting for two days, sometimes, I have been rejected outright. These setbacks resulted in self-doubt. Then I shifted gears and did voice-overs for seven to eight years. Once I started to feel somewhat settled, toh acting offers started coming in.”
Further, Sunil Grover was asked if he misses playing popular characters, especially Gutthi and Rinku Bhabhi. To this, he said, “Abhi bhi meri cupboard mein saare suits, sariyaan, blouse aur accessories pade hain. So, whenever I miss my characters, I just go to my cupboard and look at them, aur kabhi kabhi unko bahar nikaalke dhoop bhi lagwa deta hoon. Woh mere liye badi prized possessions hai. When everybody in my home sleeps, I sometimes put those clothes on and take a trip down nostalgia lane (laughs!).”
He is popular for comedy but he is enjoying exploring various genres and parts. “After my recent web show, people have started seeing me differently. I am grateful to the makers for envisioning me in such a role, despite the fact that I come with comedy baggage. I asked them if they were sure about casting me — kahin aisa na ho ki udhar murder karne jaa raha hoon aur log hass pade (laughs!). I am glad it clicked with the audience and people accepted the character. Now, I am enjoying exploring various genres and parts. Having said that, I love doing comedy and making people laugh,” said Sunil Grover.
