Sunil Grover is known to ace characters like Gutthi and Dr. Mashoor Gulati with his comic timing. The uber-talented actor, however, has taken a big leap by bagging films like Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Pataakha' starring Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan and Ali Abbas Zafar's 'Bharat' starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. With  Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Pataakha' releasing before the Salman Khan starrer, one can say that the film is Sunil Grover's true big ticket to Bollywood.

Sunil, however, believes that his past work holds an equal amount of significance given that the new journey that he is set to embark on wouldn't have been possible without the previous one, as reported. Grover reportedly said that he did plays during his school and college days, went to drama school, did voice-overs in advertising and then did television, which had a role to play in his growth. As per reports, Sunil said that doing films is the beginning of a new chapter. 

Sunil plays the role of Dipper Naradmuni in 'Pataakha' which is helmed by Vishal Bhardwaj. According to him, his selection for the role was quite organic, as reported. As per reports, for Sunil, the entire process of him being cast for the film was as simple as getting a call from Vishal Bhardwaj. Being a part of the filmmaker's films is often regarded as the highlight of an actor's career, be it Saif Ali Khan in 'Omkara' or Shahid Kapoor in 'Kaminey' and 'Haider'. According to reports, Sunil said that this was precisely why he was on the lookout for an opportunity to work with the filmmaker. He further went on to say that he took the opportunity to be tagged as an actor and he thinks that Bhardwaj knows how to get the maximum out of an actor, as reported. Reportedly, Sunil went on to say that Bhardwaj treats his actors as paintings and pays an immense amount of attention on the look of every actor in his films. According to reports, the biggest quality of the director, according to Sunil is the fact that he often leaves his actors the way they want to be.
