After completing his early education at St Francis College, Lucknow, he opted for a degree in Management Sciences at Lucknow University. In 2008, he flew to England to get his Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at Cardiff University.
Once his goal was reached, he returned back to his country. Further, he took a job at Yes Bank, India’s fourth-largest private bank and worked there for only six months and then left. “But all these years, I had one thing in common, the passion for fitness, the greed to have an awesome physique, and the mindset to be successful in life.”
The world of glamor always fascinated him. Like other kids, he also dreamt of being on stage. Even when he had entered into family business he didn’t give up on his dream and finally took the risk of leaving his business and going for an International Peagent.
Winning the Men’s Universe and Mr India titles, gave him a new platform, opened a path for him on which he had always wanted to walk on. Sunny started modeliing.

On one hand, there were ramp shows and shoots and on the other, he was lifting weights and being clicked.
