He may have stardom at his feet right now but this stardom doesn’t come to him easily. He has been in the industry around for a decade but he was hardly noticed in initial years of his career.

The comedian entertained people for years as Sudarshan aka Sud in a radio series “Hansi Ke Phuware” run by Radio Mirchi for years. He has tried every medium of entertainment in his career, from ads to tv to movies to anchoring, he has done it all. The performer never forgets his lines and is practically a treasure of talent.
On his 40th birthday, we have 5 of his impeccable characters that will always be our favorite.
1. Sampat – Ghajini
Remember the guy who was trying to copy the character of Sanjay Singhania to save Asin from embarrassment in the movie? Well, of course, you do, who can forget how bluntly he said to Aamir Khan ‘tumhare liye itna thanda bahot hai’. Sunil nailed the character of Sampat. Even though it was a short role, his impressing performance made a permanent mark on everyone’s mind.
2. Constable Sadhuram – Gabbar is Back
No one can deny the fact that he played this role with exceptional appeal. The role of constable Sadhuram was not only inspirational but also established him as a better actor in the industry. People who thought that comedy is the only genre of Sunil, were tongue tied after watching this performance.
3. Gutthi – Comedy Nights
Can you stop singing ‘Aap aaye hai is mehfil mein‘, as soon as you hear Gutthi? Nobody can. This character was inspired by his personal experiences. He made this character so popular that even after when he stopped playing it on the show, Gutthi is still alive in hearts of his fans.
