Sanjay Suri is one of the best finds of Bollywood towards the end of nineties and throughout the two thousands. He was the poster boy of the “The Typical Indian Handsome Young Man” characters of Mainstream Hindi films but gradually dwelled deeper in to playing male lead in many movies. Sanjay Suri definitely ranks one among one of the most versatile actors of the 2000 era of Bollywood who made a place for himself in the big league.

Sanjay Suri was born with two siblings in Sri Nagar, Kashmir. After spending his childhood there as an active squash player, his family relocated to Delhi after his father’s death. It was in Delhi that he took up modelling as a profession which subsequently led to his film debut in the year 1999 in a supporting role in the movie Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi.

Sanjay Suri is married to famous casting director Ambika Suri, who is known for films like My Birthday Song. The couple was married on 21st November of 2001.

Film debut and rise to prominence ( 1999-2001) It was director Raj Kausal who spotted Suri in his modelling days and offered him his very first role in Bollywood with his directorial feature Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi which had him along with Rinke Khanna and Dino Morea in the lead. The romantic comedy which told the story of group of students of a performing arts college who goes through varied emotional setbacks after the arrival of a girl had him playing a major supporting character. The movie although was a let-down at the time of release Suri got the due attention for his looks. He was then seen in Abhishek Bachchan’s romantic flick Tera Jadoo Chal Gayaa along with Kirti Reddy, Kalpana Lajmi’s Raveena Tandon starrer drama film Daman: A Victim of Martial Violence in 2001. Despite being low faring affairs these movies ensured a smooth take off for Suri’s career and saw him coming up with commendable performances. Suri was next called upon by Megna Gulzar for the critically acclaimed ensemble drama flick Filhaal alongside Sushmita Sen, Tabu and Palash Sen in the lead. The same year in 2002 he was cast opposite a huge star cast consisting of R Madhavan, Jimmy Sheirgill, Namrata Shirodkar and many more in Anant Mahdevan’s retor musical drama film Dil Vil Pyar Vyar and he paired with Sonali Kulkarni. Reportedly The first retro musical of Indian cinema by it's makers, had Sanjay Suri forming a part of the four side stories playing a widower who falls in love with a girl but the relationship fails to prosper due to her psychosomatically ill brother. The movie although a phenomenal critical success could not do well at the box office and thus Suri was yet to have a major financial success in the industry as of then. Array of other releases ( late 2002-2004) Sanjay Suri then went on to be part of movies like Govinda’s Chalo Ishq Ladaaye, Sujoy Ghosh’s musical comedy film Jhankaar Beats where he played the male lead who gets embroiled in a series of events along with a host of other people involved. The movie panned out to be a major break for Suri as his onscreen rapport with Juhi Chawla got well noted and led him to being busier with back to back projects even though none brought him commercial recognition. The following year in 2003 he appeared alongside Manoj Bajpayee and Urmila Matondkar in the period drama flick Pinjar. The film which dealt with the theme of Hindu Muslim problems at the time of partition of India was a critical phenomenon and he got widely praised for his stint. The War drama flick Dhoop had him playing a war soldier whose death comes as a shock to their family who later comes across startling revelations about the pitfalls of bureaucracy. The critically acclaimed film also featured Om Puri and Revathi as his parents, who were widely applauded for their stupendous character portrayals. In the year 2004 he appeared mostly in potboiler flicks like in the commercial hit ensemble comic thriller Plan alongside Sanjay Dutt and other playing a local gambler who aims to make it big one day, Insaaf- The Justice where he played a bureaucrat and in Raj Kausal’s comedy flick Shaadi Ka Laddoo which saw him pairing with Mandira Bedi and Aashish Chaudary in the lead. Other films ( 2005-2016) The year 2005 kick-started on a high note for Suri as he was paired once again with his golden pair Juhi Chawla (playing his sister this time) in the social drama film My Brother Nikhil which received excellent critical reports and his part of an HIV Positive patient shunned by family and society panned out to be his career best effort. His next releases were Sujoy Ghosh’s Home Delivery; Aap ko Ghar Tak and Jason Lewis starrer Indo-English production My Bollywood Bride in a supporting role. His other follow up films were: Bas Ek Pal Say Salaam India Speed Sorry Bhai Firaaq Sikandar Anubhav A Flat I Am Heroine EkhonNadekhaNodirXhipare ( Assamese Film) Nil Battey Sannata Chauranga Shorgul
