Singh in 2018

Sunny Singh Nijjar is an Indian actor.[1] He made his film debut with a brief role in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji (2011), followed by a role in Akaash Vani (2013). His first commercial success was the buddy film Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015), and his highest-grossing release came in 2018 with the comedy Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.[2]

Career[edit]

In 2007, Nijar made his television debut through the Star Plus-popular running series Kasautii Zindagii Kay, where he played the love interest of the character played by Kratika Sengar. In 2009, he played Karan in Shakuntala.

In 2011, Nijar began his film career with Madhur Bhandarkar's comedy Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, where he appeared in a cameo appearance. Starring Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, and Omi Vaidya, it performed poorly at the box office.

In 2013, he starred as an antagonist alongside Kartik Aaryan and Nushrat Bharucha in Luv Ranjan's romantic drama Akaash Vani, which was a commercial failure too.[3]

In 2015, Nijar reteamed with Ranjan for Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, a sequel to the 2011 film Pyaar Ka Punchnama and co-starring Aaryan, Bharucha, Omkar Kapoor and Sonnalli Seygall. With a worldwide total of 88 crore (US$13 million), it emerged as Nijar's commercial success.[4]

Nijar's highest-grossing release came in 2018 when he teamed with Ranjan for the third time in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety co-starring Aaryan and Bharucha. He played the role of Titu, a man whose friend, played by Aaryan, tries to separate him from his fiancée, played by Bharucha.

In 2019, Nijar had a cameo appearance in Akiv Ali's directorial debut, De De Pyaar De, a romantic comedy film about a 50 year-old businessman who falls in love with a 26 year-old girl, and starring Devgn opposite Rakul Preet Singh and Tabu. He was also in Jhootha Kahin Ka alongside Kapoor and Jimmy Sheirgill.

Nijar will appear in Jai Mummy Di, a romantic comedy starring Sonnalli Seygall, Supriya Pathak, and Poonam Dillon, directed by Navjot Gulati. The film is scheduled to be released on 17 January 2020.[5]
