the box office, Lahri did not have to struggle much to get work in Mumbai.
Movies did not do much good to Sunil and he was not much successful in that arena. So, Lahri decided to switch to a small screen where substantially he gained a big name especially when he portrayed the role of Laxman in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan. Not only this but he was also seen playing different roles in a number of TV serials including dada dadi ki kahaniyan and Vikram Aur betaal.

After auditioning 150 actors, Sunil Lahri was finalised for the role of Lakshman.
Sunil has opened a production house in collaboration with his Ramayan co-star Anil and was also invited by the Kapil Sharma show along with his team.
