Actor and stand-up comedian Sunil Grover has bagged one of the biggest films of his career. Yes, we are talking about Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bharat’, in which Sunil will be seen playing the role of Salman Khan‘s best friend. Previously, Sunil has acted in several films but ‘Bharat’ is extra special for him. After all, it’s not every day when you get to share screen space with Bhaijaan.

Opening up about how he was offered ‘Bharat’, Sunil told DNA,“The team of ‘Bharat’ offered me the role. Salman sir has always been nice and cordial with me, and complimented me. And now, it feels wonderful to be part of a film like ‘Bharat’ with such a big star. Actually, I feel lucky.”

And when you are working with Salman, naturally you will be intimidated. Sunil, who is a prolific actor, was also intimidated by the superstar’s personality. “I felt intimidated because he has such an aura, he is a big star! So, initially, it was difficult to work with him as an actor. We had a couple of parties. Party karke raat ko baithke baatein karte the! Those were our workshops,” shared the actor laughingly.

The ‘Bharat’s team kickstarted their film’s promotion during Indian Premier League’s final match (May 12).

Talking about his role in the film, Sunil revealed that his character is not used as comic relief in the film, it is the situation that evokes laughter. The actor also spoke about his expectations from the film.“‘Bharat’ has a lot of meat in it. It’s a beautiful story, it has great potential and people will be entertained. God knows if I will grab attention or not, but my intention was to play the role the way it had to be,” shared the 42-year-old actor.

Starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in lead roles, ‘Bharat’ is all set to hit the silver screens on June 5.
