For the first time ever in his two decade long career, Chunky Pandey is enacting a double role. Not just he is mahaexcited about his film, he is also warning audience beforehand about what to expect, especially with two Chunky Pandey on screen. The film in question is SANKAT CITY which is directed by debutant Pankaj Advani.
'The film is a black comedy and what makes it further special is the fact that for the first time in my career, I have a double role in a film', winks Chunky.
Two Chunkys in a single film? Now that's quite some deal, isn't it?
Laughs Chunky, 'Yes, I am warning audience beforehand, though let me tell you that the film features Kay Kay Menon and Rimii Sen as well. The film moves in real time and has an amazing screenplay to boast. Quite some effort went into creating my look and even I couldn't recognize myself when I saw myself for the first time in the mirror after my makeup was done.'
As per a source close to the film, 'The role is a lot like what Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan had played in their respective versions of DON. Chunky plays a gangster who is bumped off and later replaced by a similar looking man. Though it isn't a spoof, it's still a funny role, because the serious North Indian don is eventually replaced by a dark, funny looking, South Indian Don who speaks with a major twang.'
SANKAT CITY has been produced by Anubhav Sinha and has been ready for some time. It was waiting for the right time to see a theatrical release and is now expected to see a kick start in promotion very soon.
