He doesn’t have to try too hard. His audience can’t hold back a chuckle when he doles out a mere oneliner or tiny twist of expression. Sunil Grover makes comedy seem like a cakewalk.
“I think I am lucky. I am lucky that people laugh at what I say. So, there is nothing else to it. We all have to do our work and create our jokes, and how to render it and how to approach it. I love it. Maybe the love for it makes it work sometimes,” 43-year-old funnyman told IANS.
Sunil Grover gained the spotlight for his portrayals of Gutthi, Dr Mashoor Gulati and Rinku Devi on television. He has also featured in Bollywood films such as Bharat, Gabbar Is Back, Pataakha and Baaghi, among many others.
Talking further about comedy, Sunil Grover said, “I love what I do and that is a tool. This is something which is not imposed. I can’t do anything else. Maybe when you know that this is the only survival thing you have you have to love it.”
Currently, Sunil stars in the web series Sunflower. The comedy murder-mystery also features Ranvir Shorey, Ashish Vidyarthi, Girish Kulkarni, Mukul Chadda, Radha Bhatt, Dayana Erappa, Shonali Nagrani, and Saloni Khanna, among a huge ensemble cast.
The series tells the story of a middle-class housing society in Mumbai called Sunflower, which houses quirky characters and becomes the scene of a murder. Produced by Reliance Entertainment and Good Co., the series is written by Vikas Bahl who co-directed it with Rahul Sengupta. It streams on Zee5.
