After making his Bollywood debut with a supporting role in Akshay Kumar-starrer Khiladi 420 in 2000, Sudhanshu featured in several films including Singhh Is Kingg and Dus Kahaniya.
Talking about his new-found popularity, Sudhanshu told ETimes, “If I tell you frankly, I had never imagined that Anupamaa will be such a huge hit. I had a gut feeling that the show would be successful but it would become this massive hit, I had not imagined. I was also not aware of the popularity and reach of television. I have done close to 48 films and some of them have been big budget ones. I have done a Hollywood film and the biggest Indian film, Robot 2.0.”
He added, “I have worked with Jackie Chan, Rajnikanth sir, Akshay Kumar. I made a debut with Akshay and actresses like Raveena Tandon, Priyanka Chopra, Gracy Singh have been my heroines in my films. But the popularity I’ve got from Anupamaa, I have not experienced anything like this before even after doing these big budget films.”
He was also a part of the boy band, A Band of Boys (ABOB), known for their song Gori. Talking about the band, he recently told HT Brunch in an interview, “This was before I had my kids so, I was focussed on taking care of my wife and career. I also became part of a band by chance. My friends said I could sing well. I was asked to sing before Hariharan and Leslie Lewis; they loved my voice. That’s how I became part of a boy band.”
Sudhanshu also worked on the Doordarshan TV serial Beta.
