HBD Chunky Panday: 5 negative characters that he excelled with his outstanding performance!

Today marks Chunky Panday‘s 60th birthday. He is widely recognized as one of the top comedy actors. In the 1987 Bollywood film Aag Hi Aag, in which he starred alongside Neelam Kothari, Chunky made his acting debut. The actor rose to fame, nevertheless, thanks to a supporting part in the movie “Tezaab,” which starred Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor. Chunky has appeared in more than 80 films during his more than 30-year career. He has also worked on a lot of popular Bangladeshi movies.

While Chunky is renowned for his impeccable comedic timing, the actor has also given some breathtaking performances in films with more somber tones. Some of his best evil portrayals include the following:

1) Begum Jaan (2017)

Begum Jaan

Srijit Mukherji, who has won national awards for his work, is the director of the historical drama Begum Jaan. The narrative of eleven prostitutes who remained in their brothel during the partition of India and Pakistan served as the basis for the movie. With his character’s bald pate, kohl-lined eyes, and tobacco-stained teeth, the actor astounded everyone. To get rid of Begum Jaan and other prostitutes from the brothel, a goon was hired, and Chunky played that goon in the play.

2) Abhay 2 

Abhay 2

Ken Ghosh is the director of the Zee 5 original series Abhay 2. Kunal Kemmu portrayed a cop in the show, and Chunky Panday played Harsh, a double-faced serial killer. His menacing demeanour and eerie emotions perfectly capture the character. Both both a merciless serial killer and the proprietor of a small-town copying shop, he seems to be quite believable.

3)Qayamat: City Under Threat (2003)


Starring Ajay Devgn, Sunil Shetty, Sanjay Kapoor, Arbaaz Khan, and Chunky Panday, the movie was directed by Harry Baweja. Chunky took on the role of a dishonest scientist. The movie also signaled his comeback to Bollywood.

4) Prashthanam (2018)

5) Saaho (2019)


Sujeeth is the director of the action-thriller movie Saaho. Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor, and Chunky Panday all acted in the movie. In the movie, Chunky can be seen playing the grey role of Devraj. He is interesting to observe because of his menacing appearance and unwavering gaze.
