Sunil Grover – the funny man who became a household name after playing crackling characters like Gutthi and Dr. Mashoor Gulati on television. In a recent interview, he was asked that he has done small roles in films before but ‘Patakha’ is something that is introducing him in a full-fledged role, so does he think that this film is like a miracle to him; Sunil calmly replied: “Does that mean all that I have done in the past holds no significance. It’s just a journey and this would not have been possible without the previous one. I had done plays during my school and college days. I also went to a drama school, did voiceover in advertising and finally did television. They all had a role to play in my growth. I would rather say that this is the beginning of a new chapter.”
He also says that he got the role of Dipper Naradmuni very easily, Vishal Bhardwaj called him and this was it. On working with Bhardwaj, he said: “That’s precisely why I was on the lookout for an opportunity to work with him. It was only to be tagged as an actor. I think he knows how to get the maximum out of somebody. He treats his actors just like paintings and pays a great amount of attention on the look of every actor in the film."
Sunil Grover also commented on his comparison with Govinda, he comments: “Firstly, I don’t even feel like making any effort to come out of this image. If anyone were to see my potential, he will give me work. I feel that I am versatile and can handle things in different ways. I had done a film called Gabbar is Back and it had no scene which required me to do comedy. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who had produced the film, had faith in me. It was me who had asked him thrice if they were sure of my casting, I really fail to comprehend the fact that why serious roles are considered the real test for someone who is well-versed in comedy.”
