Sunil damaged his career severely when he opted to act as lead hero and left comedy for good. He later realized that serious roles are not his USP. And he came back to comedy.
We saw Sunil in Aravinda Sametha and Chitralahari.Both these films did not help him much for his second innings as a comedian.
Sunil nevertheless shows no signs of stopping. He will be seen in an important role in Gopichand starrer Chanakya. The details of his role is yet to be known.
