Sunil Grover, who plays in the crime comedy series “Sunflower”, says he is grateful to filmmakers who portray him beyond his famous avatar as a comedian.
“It is entirely in the hands of the producers what role they play. I’m known as a comedian and people have had my comic avatar the longest. I was offered a negative character in “Tandav”, and the credit for that goes to (series creator) Ali Abbas Zafar. He imagined me differently and all I had to do was act. I was nervous about doing the role, but in the end, people appreciated my role. Now my role in ‘Sunflower’ is completely different – he has a lot of innocence, “says Sunil.
He continues, “As an artist, I enjoy portraying different kinds of roles every time. Getting into a different psyche with each role is exciting. I’m not comfortable with myself at all, so I enjoy getting into someone else’s mindset and living his life. As an actor, you want what you enjoy. I just love it. “
About “Sunflower,” he says what clicked on the show is its various storytelling.
“The story of sunflower is quite interesting. When you talk about a murder mystery, the mystery is usually solved in the end, but with Sunflower we reveal the secret in the beginning and it was a challenge to make it exciting and interesting for the audience. This is a new style of storytelling. I thoroughly enjoyed it while reading, playing and finally watching the end product. It was a team effort and it was appreciated, so I am happy about it, ”says Sunil.
With the help of Vikas Bahl, “Sunflower” casts Sunil Grover as part of an ensemble cast with Ranvir Shorey, Girish Kulkarni, Mukul Chadda, Shonali Nagrani, Sonal Jha and Ashish Vidyarthi. The original Zee5 web series is produced by Reliance Entertainment and Good Co.
