Get over his hilarious Aakhri Pasta act in the ‘Housefull’ franchise. Because it’s time to meet the evil version of Chunky Pandey!
Here’s the all new look of the actor from director Srijit Mukherjee’s ‘Begum Jaan’ and it truly is creepy AF.
Speaking about how he landed the role, Pandey said to a leading newspaper that, “The ADs were in splits because they had seen Housefull 3 just the previous night and didn't think I could play anyone so evil and gut-wrenchingly ugly. I did the audition without much hope of bagging the role but a few days later, I was called over by Srijit.”
When asked about how his family reacted to his new look minus the long locks, he said, “When I reached home my wife (Bhavna) screamed and ordered me out of our bedroom for the next two weeks. She wouldn't even look at me till I looked like the normal Chunky.”
Chunky describes this one as a heartless villain- a side to his acting no one has ever seen before.
A remake of Bengali film ‘Rajkahini’, the original one starred Jisshu Sengupta as the villain; while Rituparna Sengupta played the role of a brothel owner which is being essayed by Vidya Balan in this one!
Going by this, we can say it’s going to be a new innings for Pandey in Bollywood all over again.
