Sunil’s last stint as lead man failed with Silly Fellows flopping at box office. Although Sunil didn’t play the lead character in it, his role has equal screen presence as its lead man Allari Naresh.Despite Sunil’s flashes of brilliance with his vintage comedy, Silly Fellows failed to click.
Sunil is now back to doing comedy characters and he cannot ask for a better re-launch than a Trivikram-Tarak film.Sunil will be seen as Tarak’s sidekick in Aravindha Sametha. His character is said to be the only comic relief in this serious action drama.Trivikram was instrumental in Sunil’s success as comedian. The ace writer has penned some memorable characters for his friend and made him a superstar comedy actor.
However, Sunil didn’t play lead role in any of Trivikram’s movies. Trivikram roped in Sunil for Aravindha Sametha after the latter decided to give up on lead roles.It is a big test for Sunil as he was not seen as comedian in the last decade. He needs to make a strong impact in Aravindha Sametha for Telugu filmmakers to pen special characters for him.With comedians like Vennela Kishore ruling the roost, Sunil should make his reentry count with a roaring performance.
