Adding to the film's growing momentum is veteran actress Shabana Azmi's glowing praise. Taking to Instagram, Azmi lauded both the film and Aaryan's performance. She described herself as "deeply moved" by "Chandu Champion" and commended Aaryan's ability to capture the protagonist's unwavering determination with an infectious smile that avoided any sense of arrogance. Kartik got a sweet kiss from Azmi. In the caption, she wrote, “Vijay Raaz as the coach is very effective. It’s a real-life story and I say Salaam Kabir for making it in his lifetime so he got to watch it with his family. Here am I with Kaartik at a special screening organised by Excel Entertainment,” the five-time National Award-winning actor added.

The film chronicles the life of Muralikant Petkar, a name not as readily recognized as some of India's sporting legends. Petkar's journey to Paralympic gold is a testament to human resilience. Facing adversity at every turn, from poverty to a life-altering injury, Petkar's unwavering spirit and dedication to his athletic ambitions are what Chandu Champion seeks to portray.

Directed by Kabir Khan and jointly produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Kabir Khan, Chandu Champion released on June 14, 2024.
