Born in Mulki, India, Bollywood superstar Sunil Shetty debuted during the early '90s but only saw his career catch fire around a decade later. He amassed dozens upon dozens of acting credits, nearly all in productions in his native India, including roles in such films as Vinashak (1998), Main Hoon Na (2004), Paheli (2005), and Shaadi Se Pehle (2006). Thereafter, Shetty scored two international successes with the 2007 Om Shanti Om and the 2008 One Two Three.
