Actor Chunky Panday is set to star in a short film, titled Dhonu.
Produced and directed by Deepak Ranjan Panda, Dhonu is being described as a story about believing and fulfilling your dreams in the city of Mumbai.
“This is my first collaboration with Deepak. When he discussed this project with me, I took time and realized after a few narrations that I had to be a part of it. This film is a rare gem and this kind of cinema comes far in-between so you can’t let go of such an opportunity. I’m very sure that this film will leave an impression,” Panday said in a statement here.
Panday, who was last seen in Housefull 4, is portraying a rhymester.
According to the statement, the film will have a social message with a pinch of comedy.
“I had been working on the script of Dhonu for a very long time. It wasn’t easy for a fresh director like me to convince him (Panday) but after quite a few narrations, I convinced him to be a part of it. I wouldn’t have made Dhonu with any other actor since the character demanded Chunky Panday,” Panda said.
The film cast also includes Meiyang Chang and Anshuman Jha, among others.
