Sunil Grover

Actor, Comedian

An Appreciable Comedian

Sunil Grover is one of the most popular and famous character comedians to grace the Indian screen. His character Guthi brought him immense love from viewers to the point that it became a national conversation. Sunil is known for his comedic genius, and is also an incredible dramatic actor. Grover has been in the industry for years; still, we'd consider him as a Sunflower that has just started to bloom.

Struggle To Stardom

Sunil Grover's journey into achieving his dream of being in the limelight is quite fascinating. He used to be extremely good in theatre, mimicry and dramatics. To the point that once he was discouraged by the chief guest from participating, it would be unfair to other contestants.

He lived the first year in Mumbai, earning 500 rs and getting money from his parents. Sunil lived in a posh area where he used to party all the time and spend all of his money. Grover believed that it would be pretty easy for him to make it and was overconfident.

Once the realisation set in that every person who comes to the city thinks it demotivated him. He remembered when his dad wanted to be a radio announcer and had an acceptance letter but was forced to do a bank job. His father regretted it his whole life, and that is not how Sunil wanted to live his life.

He started working hard looking for a job and, after some struggle, found a voiceover job. Grover then soon got a job as an RJ, and his voice was broadcast across the country. Sunil Grover managed to achieve the dream of his father and went beyond it. Many cannot proclaim that in their life.

Trying to Break Free From Comedy

Sunil Grover is the funny man that everyone looks towards for laughter and joy. Grover has enjoyed that stardom for a long time, but he now wants to break the mould. Sunil Grover said Security guards at the airport have often told me, "Sir, aapko dekh kar hassi aa hi jaati hai." Once an image of an artist is set, there is not much to explore.

Very few know this, but Grover is a trained dramatic actor and has a Master's degree in Indian Theatre from Punjab University.

Sunil is used to playing the role of Shakespeare and has worked on many classic tragedies like Hamlet and Oedipus on stage.

Grover got to learn the art of Comedy with the legendary satirist Jaspal Bhatti. In the 90s, Bhatti was considered the best comedian, and he created the Flop show. With Jaspal, Sir Sunil travelled extensively and learned the art of forming sentences and delivering punchlines.

Grover now doesn't want only to be a funny man but also a dramatic actor. With his roles like Sonu Singh in Sunflower and Gurpal in Tandav, he's successfully transitioning. We cannot wait to see what new exciting roles he will approach.

The Rich Life of Sunil

Sunil Grover's comedic roles and down to earth personality might make you forget he's extremely wealthy. When Grover was on the Kapil show, he earned 10-15 lakh per episode. In addition, Sunil receives additional remuneration from performing on stage. He is annually making money that rivals that of a prominent actor. In our opinion, Grover very much deserves the wealth for his hard work, and we hope he sees more fortune.

Prankster At Heart

Sunil Grover used to always play a lot of pranks and got into trouble for it. He used to go with his family on trips and cry that he could not find his brother. At the same time, his family members used to laugh at his silly antics from far away. One time a man was genuinely trying to help him and realised that it was a prank.

He got highly furious and shouted at Sunil. He felt highly apologetic and thought that he shouldn't play pranks anymore. Of course, Sunil being Sunil he can't help but play pranks but tries to be more careful about it.

Sunil Grover is living proof that if you work hard and be talented you can achieve anything. He's made it into the industry being from a small town with no godfather or film family. Grover continues to entertain all of us by enthralling and making us laugh.
