The actor will be seen reviving his role of Anurag in the upcoming second season of Dev DD which ultimately made us recall Sanjay Suri’s consistency in essaying strong characters on-screens.

Devdas, the classic romantic novel by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay has been at the heart of many romantic movies with different-yet-interesting cinematic versions. And taking an off-beat route, Ken Ghosh’s version of Devdas has a lady protagonist i.e Devika (Asheema Vardan) in the spotlight. Titled Dev DD, the first season of this episodic saga was highly appreciated by critics as well as the viewers. 

Exploring the complications of human relationships and modern-age romance, the series gave us some memorable characters including Sanjay Suri’s Anurag, the male version of ‘Chandramukhi.’ The actor will be seen reviving his role in the upcoming second season which ultimately made us recall Suri’s consistency in essaying strong characters on-screen. So, ahead of Dev DD season 2, here’s revisiting Sanjay Suri’s norm-breaking performances which you should not miss out on watching.

Sanjay Suri’s character of Ramchand, Puro’s fiance, sets on a journey to rescue her despite his family’s opposition.

Directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the film features Urmila Matondkar and Manoj Bajpayee as the main leads. Sanjay with his minimum screen presence in the film impressed everyone with his expressive act.

If you haven’t watched Onir’s My Brother Nikhil, then you are definitely missing out on one of the finest movies ever made in India.

Only his sister Anamika’s (Juhi Chawla) love keeps him going throughout his journey filled with hardships. 

Sanjay Suri played the role of Nikhil and did justice with dignity. The 2005 film turned out to be one of the biggest milestone for Indian Cinema.
