Sonu Sood’s Career and Movies

Kallazhagar and Nenjinile, two Tamil language movies from 1999, introduced Sood to the movies. Then, in 2000, he made an appearance as an antagonist in the Telugu movie Hands Up! He appeared in Majunu in 2001. In 2002, he started appearing in Hindi movies as Bhagat Singh, starting with Shaheed-E-Azam. In 2004's Yuva and 2005's Aashiq Banaya Aapne, Sood gained popularity in Bollywood.

With the release of Super in 2005, Sonu Sood gained further notoriety for his efforts in Tollywood. His co-star in this movie, Nagarjuna, played a high-tech burglar. His following movie was Athadu. He performed the antagonist role in Ashok in 2006. Although he only made an average amount of money, he was now well-known in Telugu movies.

He portrayed Pasupathy in Arundhati in 2009 in Tollywood. He portrayed Rajkumar Sujamal in the Ashutosh Gowariker-helmed Indian epic film Jodha Akbar. He co-starred with Ravi Teja in the 2009 film Anjaneyulu as the gangster Bada. He appeared in the Telugu film Ek Niranjan in the second part of 2009, in which he once more played the villain. He co-starred alongside Salman Khan in Abhinav Kashyap's Dabangg in 2010, playing the main antagonist. Vishnuvardhana, his Kannada debut film starring Sudeep, received favorable reviews for his performance.


Aashiq Banaya Aapne (2005)

Tanushree Dutta's character, Sneha, is loved by Karan (Sonu Sood), but he is too shy to ever tell her. Even though Karan's emotions are obvious to most people, he never musters the bravery to express them to Sneha. Instead, he is pleased to simply watch her smile. When Vicky (Emraan Hashmi) attempts to convince him to end their relationship, he promises him that this time, he is truly in love with Sneha. A childhood pal of Karan's.

Vicky is an extrovert and a noted flirt, which makes her very different from Karan. Vicky joins Karan and Sneha in college, and Sneha starts to feel pulled to Vicky, which causes all three of their lives to shift. Karan believes he has lost the one woman he has ever loved, but he is aware that there is nothing he can do to change it. Life moves on, though, and the three of them remain close friends. The bond between Vicky and Sneha transcends all barriers, but just as everything appeared to be set between the two, one dramatic night shatters it.

It was with the Bollywood soundtrack album that Himesh Reshammiya made his singing debut. Box Office India, an Indian business website, reports that the music sold almost 2,000,000 copies. The Song became viral sensation for its bold scenes.


Arundhati (2009 film)

An wicked mystic is fought by a courageous queen. He returns to haunt the queen's descendants three generations later.
Arundhati is a member of the ruling Gadwal dynasty. It has been decided that she will wed Rahul. She travels from Hyderabad to the fort of Gadwal a few days before her wedding. She is pulled there to a nearby deserted fort where evil is hidden. Arundhati is compelled to engage in combat once more when the evil escapes, much like her great-grandmother Jejamma did.
Without any other choice, Arundhati returns to the fort to be raped in order to save her family's lives. Arundhati receives the weapon from Anwar and uses it to kill Pasupati in the dramatic finale.
Along with Sonu Sood, Deepak, Sayaji Shinde, Manorama, and Kaikala Satyanarayana, Anushka Shetty plays the title role in the movie.
The movie, which debuted on January 16th, 2009, was a huge commercial hit and eventually became one of the highest-grossing Telugu movies of the year.
The movie won multiple awards, including two Filmfare Awards South and ten Nandi Awards. In 2014, the same-titled Bengali version of the movie was released.


Dabangg (2010)

The movie Dabangg (also known as Dabang) is a hard-hitting, engaging, and emotional story that unfolds grippingly in a place where only the brave can live. Uttar Pradesh serves as the backdrop for the film. Salman Khan portrays a character in the movie who has dark undertones. He plays Chulbul Pandey, popularly known as Robinhood Pandey, a corrupt police officer. The movie makes an effort to draw attention to the system's shortcomings and gaps. The main subject of the movie will be the involvement of the police in illegal activities in the states of UP and Bihar.

The song Munni Badnaam Hui became very popular.

Dabangg got praise in important Indian film award ceremonies. The National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment was one of them. Six accolades were granted to it at the 56th Filmfare Awards, including one for Best Film, seven Screen Awards, nine Zee Cine Awards, ten IIFA Awards, and seven Screen Awards.


Ramaiya Vastavaiya (2013)

Ram develops feelings for Sona, a farmer living in Punjab. Her older brother pushes him to sow extra seeds in their fields as he follows her to her farm. He will be able to marry her if he prevails. Born to billionaire parents, Ram (Girish Kumar) is a wealthy city boy who was raised in Australia. Sona (Shruti Hassan), on the other hand, is a typical, straightforward desi girl from Punjab who is raised by her only brother, Raghuveer ( Sonu Sood). Sona's best friend, Riya, visits them one day to extend an invitation to Sona as she is getting married. Ram, Riya's cousin, and his mother Ashwini arrive on the same day ( Poonam Dhillon).

Because Akash wants to wed Sona, Jaiswal and his son Akash are unhappy. Ram has to work hard for his love, eating red chilies and rice every day despite being unable to tolerate it because they, Dolly, and her father are all trying to make Ram lose the competition. Ram eventually convinces Raghu of his love for Sona through numerous shenanigans from Jaiswal's and Dolly's sides and is successful in producing additional grains. 

Akash, however, kidnaps Sona and later tries to forcefully wed her. Sunil Rao and Akash are killed by Ram, and Jay Prakash and Jaiswal are beaten to death by Raghu. After recognizing that Ram and Sona need to be together, Raghu accepts responsibility and is sentenced to seven years in prison. The film concludes with Sona and Ram getting married in front of everyone and Raghu being released from jail. Sona is afterward welcomed as Ashwini's daughter-in-law.


Simmba (2018)

Simmba, a corrupt police officer, enjoys all the benefits of his immoral and unethical job until a pivotal moment compels him to take the moral high road.

Our darling Singham was born and raised in Shivgadh, where Simmba, an orphan, was raised. Contrary to Singham's beliefs, Simmba considers the life of a corrupt officer to be an ideal life that motivates him to become one. Simmba enjoys all the benefits of being an immoral and dishonest Police Officer, but a turn in the story changes him and compels him to follow the moral path.

On November 14, 2020, Pogo TV started the animated television series Smashing Simmba, which is based on the movie.
The song Aankh Maarey is a remake of Aankh Maare from Tere Mere Sapne, which came out in 1996.
