Full Biography of Actor Sonu Sood

Sonu Sood is an Indian model, film actor and producer who has acted predominantly in Telugu cinema, Bollywood, and few Tamil and Kannada films. A participant in the Mr.India pageant, he has appeared in commercials for Apollo Tyres, Airtel etc.

In 2009, He has received Andhra Pradesh State Nandi Award for Best Villain and Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award (Telugu) for his work in the Telugu blockbuster, Arundhati. In 2010, He has garnered Apsara Award for Best Actor in a Negative Role and IIFA Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role for his work in the Bollywood blockbuster, Dabangg. In 2012, He received SIIMA Award for Best Actor in a Negative Role for his work in Julayi. He is best known for antagonist roles in blockbuster films like Yuva (2004), Athadu (2005), Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005), Jodhaa Akbar (2008), Dookudu (2011) and Shootout at Wadala (2013).

Sonu Sood was born on 30 July 1973 and brought up in Moga, Punjab but later moved to Nagpur for higher studies where he participated in modelling event. He studied in sacred heart school in Moga city . He grew up with two sisters. His father was an entrepreneur and his mother was a teacher. Since his childhood he wanted to be an actor. He often visits his hometown frequently on family functions, as a guest and to inspire the youth.

A graduate in Electronics Engineering from Yeshwantrao Chavan College of Engineering, Nagpur, he is married to Sonali and they have a son named Ishant.

Though Sonu Sood made his debut in Tamil film Prashanth starer Majunu his second film Kallazhagar 1999, got released along with Laila Mehdin, opposite to Vijayakanth which did not fetch him any recognition and the third film as an antagonist in Telugu film Hands Up (2000), which was a box office dud. Sonu got introduced in Tamil Majnu (2001). The film was a smashing musical hit. That gave him lots of identity and he made his acting debut in Hindi films with Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh in 2002, which won critical acclaim for his performance. But he was better noticed as Abhishek Bachchan\'s brother in Mani Ratnam\'s Yuva (2004) and in Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005).  Sonu did some steamy stuff in Sheesha (2005) and Siskiyaan (2005).

In Tollywood, with the release of Super in 2005, he received greater recognition for his work.  In this film, his co-star was Nagarjuna as a high-tech thief. However, the film didn\'t perform as well as expected. His next film was Athadu, which was a super-hit, but didn\'t help in building his image. In 2006 he again portrayed the antagonist in Ashok. It was an average grosser, but by now he had become popular in Telugu films.

It was Arundhati that took him to the greatest unimagined heights in a non-local industry. He played the role of Aghora. This film turned out to be the biggest Telugu hit of that year.

Following the Tollywood hit of Arundhati, in February 2008, he played the role of Rajkumar Sujamal in the Indian epic film, Jodha Akbar.In 2009, he played the role of Gangster Bada in Anjaneyulu opposite Ravi Teja, but the role held less scope for his acting skills. In the latter half of 2009, he acted in another Telugu film, Ek Niranjan, in which he again played the antagonist. The film received mixed reviews, but Sood was critically praised for his portrayal of a sadistic villain. His histrionics and slang mixing English with Telugu in this film proved to be sensational.

In 2010, he played the lead antagonist in Abhinav Kashyap\'s Dabangg, co-starring with Salman Khan.  His Kannada debut with Sudeep Only Vishnuvardhana released with a great response and critics lauded his performance.
