Mumbai/Entertainment/Tubelight Special: He is one of the most bankable stars in the industry but he is more of an entertainer than an actor.
Salman’s praise came in response to film critic Anupama Chopra’s question for her YouTube channel as to whether his films and acting were the most important things to him.
The superstar’s reply was, “We went to this show the other day. Sunil Grover was there. When we saw him, I was like ‘look at these guys, look at how brilliant they are!’.
I just lucked out. I need to appreciate the fact and need to keep on working harder.”
“He (Sunil Grover) has come in as that doctor (Mashoor Gulati), he is not doing any comedy. He is just playing a character.
Then he is coming as Mr Bachchan. Uff! You have to see that! Oh my God! And he was not doing any comedy or mimicry.
He was straight out playing it, how Mr Bachchan is in his real life. Everyone can do the ‘Haain!’.
He (Sunil) got the nuances from his real life, not the filmy ones. I have never seen anything like this. I was just looking at him and felt so incompetent that day,” the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star added.
It involved several gigs around Sunil’s act as Dr. Mashoor Gulati, a performance by TV star Mouni Roy and some skits by Ali Asgar and the show’s host Aparshakti Khuranna.
