Sunil Grover (born 3 August 1977) is an Indian actor and comedian who works in Hindi and Punjabi language films and television. He came into the limelight for his portrayal as Gutthi on the television show Comedy Nights with Kapil but gained popularity for playing the role of Dr. Mashhoor Gulati and Rinku Devi on The Kapil Sharma Show. He was also seen in Bollywood films Gabbar Is Back, The Legend of Bhagat Singh, and Bharat.

 

Grover was born on 3 August 1977 in Mandi Dabwali town of Sirsa district, Haryana. He received a Master's Degree in Theatre from Panjab University Chandigarh. He is married to Aarti and has a son Mohan.

During the 2000s, he made his television debut with Chala Lallan Hero Banne on Filmy.

He gained a lot of popularity from the comedy show Comedy Nights with Kapil and became well known for his comical characters like Gutthi, Rinku Bhabhi, and Dr. Mashoor Gulati.
