Most recently, Sunny’s short film YELLOW made it to the International Film Festival of South Asia (IFFSA) Toronto and NDTV’s Profit-Prime channel while his promotional video for the Toastmasters Club won the Diamond Director Award at the District Conference. In the past, he has served as the G4 Area Director in District-4 and has won many of the Toastmasters international speech contests at Club, Area and Division levels.

Sunny was also the lead in the music video for Sunidhi Chauhan’s first-ever single “Ab Laut Aa” which received more than a million views on Youtube and won the Best Music Video Award at the VIMA Music Awards. His feature film KAAYA, a drama/horror genre, will be hitting the screens this year.

Sunny is also regularly invited as a speaker at many events like the Fremont Area Writers meet, a branch of the California Writers Club.
