His performance won him his first Filmfare Best Actor Award Nomination. With his portrayal of an amateur boxer wrongly accused of his brother's murder in Rajkumar Santoshi's Ghayal, Sunny added another hit movie to his movie career. Produced by the home banner Vijayta Films, the movie was an instant hit with the masses and went on to win seven Filmfare Awards. His performance won him Filmfare Award for Best Actor and also National Film Award – Special Jury Award / Special Mention (Feature Film). In 1991, Sunny starred in about five films but only Narsimha was a success. Rajiv Rai's Vishwatma in which he acted opposite Divya Bharti, was Sunny's only release in 1992.

He won Screen Award for Best Actor and was nominated for the Filmfare Best Actor Award for his portrayal. His third release that year saw him playing the title role in the action film Indian, a remake of the Tamil film Vallarasu in which Sunny played the character of DCP Rajshekhar Azad, an honest police officer.
