The new generation would remember him as Aakhri Pasta, the hilarious chap from the Housefull franchise. But before he began appearing as a character artist, Chunky Panday has also put out remarkable performances in films such as Tezaab, Khatron Ke Khiladi, Zahreelay, Lootere and Parda Hai Parda. It is an unquestionable fact that pulling out evil characters comes to him as naturally as performing a character with comic effects. In Sanjay Dutt‘s Prassthanam, Chunky will be seen alongside a bunch of contemporaries including Jackie Shroff, Manisha Koirala and Sanjay himself.
Chunky, who is familiar to most of his co-stars and have worked with them before as well, revealed in a recent interview that shooting with the gang felt like a big re-union. They’d often walk down the memory lane, reminiscing the good, old times and often, a laughter riot would follow. While all of the three men began their respective careers in the 80s, Manisha Koirala joined the film industry in early 90s. But that didn’t stop her from being a part of the beautiful trip down nostalgia!
Prassthanam, a Hindi remake of the Telugu flick with the same name, also stars Ali Fazal and Amyra Dastur. Too young for the rest, we know. But hope they enjoyed being a part of all the laughter as well.
