He is a very supportive co-star. Even during Dil Toh Pagal Hai, he would make sure all his co-stars were at ease and are doing their best. If we would struggle at any step or anything he would walk up to us and take us to a corner and talk to us. He would guide us and say let me know what suits you, I will do the step according to you. I will change to suit and be in sync with the entire group and that’s why he is Shah Rukh Khan today. His thinking is that his co-stars should also look good. That is why he is so successful. This is the quality that I’ve learnt from him and I try to implement at my level also  The Times of India
Balvinder made his television debut with the SAB TV show Mr N Mrs Sharma Allahbadwale. In 2020, he replaced Gurcharan Singh who was playing the role of Roshan Singh Sodhi in Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. In an interview Balvinder said
Popular is a small word. It is an iconic show. After Ramayan and Mahabharat, it is Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah on TV. It is for me present day’s mythology. It feels great to be a part of it and it is once in a lifetime opportunity to bag a role like this and be a part of the longest running sitcom. The feeling is still sinking in. I’ve been acting since last so many years. I did a college show called Campus in 1995.  The Times Of India

- When Balvinder Singh Suri replaced Gurcharan Singh as Roshan Singh Sodhi in the popular Indian sitcom Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah after Gurcharan Singh left the show in 2020, the fans of Roshan Singh Sodhi got disappointed and started trolling Suri on social media. Reportedly, Balvinder Singh Suri was suggested by Gurcharan Singh himself for replacing him in the show. In an interview, Gurcharan said,
I had met the one who replaced me before (Laad Singh) and told him that he should do it well as he has got a very plum assignment. I remember meeting him in a Gurdwara in Mumbai (Andheri, Four Bunglows). The other Sodhi (Balwinder Singh Suri) was in a way recommended by me; he used to work in our show in the Creative team and I suggested that he will do it aptly. Frankly, I haven’t seen much of the second one to give you an assessment. But I think there are several people who still want me back  The Indian Express
