Bollywood actor Sunil Grover got fame when he was a part of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. Because of a tiff with Kapil, the multi role-playing Sunil decided to quit the show and the programme lost its essence, which eventually became talk of the town.
In an interview with a news agency, Sunil Grover said, “In TV, when a character works, you end up doing it for years. In a long story format, you have to set a graph for your role. I am trying to get used to this. It is a new world for me. However, I enjoy (acting in) both worlds. I feel grateful for the experiences that I am getting in this lifetime. I am enjoying this new phase.”
Grover said he is happy that the audiences welcomed him taking up diverse roles, despite his “comedic baggage”.
He added, “What I did earlier wasn’t planned because I started with something else and I went into something else. I come with so much comedic baggage of so many years. It is challenging to break that sort of image. The fear of not being accepted in certain roles… But people have accepted me and I feel happy about it.”
He mentioned “When Vishal gave me ‘Pataakha’, I was not prepared or planning to do something like that. Ditto for ‘Bharat’. Director Ali Abbas Zafar and the team thought of me. Then ‘Tandav’ came.”
He will be next in Vikas Bahl’s web series ‘Sunflower’ which will be premiered on ZEE5 on June 11. While Grover will star in the lead role, the cast also includes Ranvir Shorey, Girish Kulkarni, Shonali Nagrani and Sonal Jha.
