I hope someone sees something else in me except comedy: Chunky Pandey

Chunky hit off with films like 'Tezaab' and went on to do memorable roles in 'Aag Hi Aag','Paap Ki Duniya' and 'Vishwatma'.

Actor Chunky Pandey,who started his career with strong character roles and later shifted gears to comedy,says he yearns to do something out of the box.

“I don’t think I am restricting myself to doing only comedy I am hoping that someone offers me something else. I had done a film for Ram Gopal Varma called ‘D’ with Randeep Hooda. It was a very dark film and I would like to do something like that,” said Chunky.

“It requires a lot of courage for someone to cast me in something else. I am just hoping that someone sees something else in me other than comedy,” he said.

His role as ‘Aakhiri Pasta’ has been loved by one and all in ‘Housefull’ and ‘Housefull 2′. Also,his next release is adult comedy,’Kya Super Kool Hai Hum’.

“I think comedy is very easy. Its all in the writing. If the writing is good and you have good director it is good. Like for ‘Housefull’ I used to do whatever Sajid told me,I used to copy him. ‘Housefull’ was a mass entertainer. Kids loved that film and they asked me when I was coming back,” Chunky said.

“I feel I can’t tell them that I am coming back as Baba 3G in a sex comedy,’Kya Super Kool Hai Hum’. I will miss the kids watching this film but I am sure that many of them will run away from homes to watch this film,” he said.

Meanwhile,Chunky has plans to produce films. “I am going to produce a film by this year but it is premature to talk about it now,” he said.


Chunky hit off with films like ‘Tezaab’ and went on to do memorable roles in ‘Aag Hi Aag’,’Paap Ki Duniya’ and ‘Vishwatma’. Thereafter he forayed into comedy with ‘Ankhein’ among many others,and more recently did roles in ‘De Dana Dan’,’Tees Maar Khan’ and ‘Housefull’ series.
