Chunky Pandey promises that his SANKAT CITY would show that side of Mumbai which has been hitherto unexplored.
"There have been number of films that have been made with Mumbai as a backdrop or a character. COMPANY, LIFE IN A METRO, EK CHALIS KI LAST LOCAL they all have presented Mumbai in a different manner. Now watch out for SANKAT CITY which shows the flip side of the city. It has been brilliantly presented by Pankaj Advani, who makes his debut as a director with this film", says Chunky Pandey who would also be seen in KHALLBALLI FUN UNLIMITED in a few days from now.
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.
As for 2009, it seems like Chunky Pandey film festival in the offering, what with as many as half a dozen films featuring him lined for release. These are DADDY COOL, EK THE POWER OF ONE, CLICK, MONOPOLY THE GAME OF MONEY, PAYING GUESTS, HELLO DARLING and ISHAAN. He also has an important role to play in KHALLBALLI FUN UNLIMITED which releases all over on 5th December.
About SANKAT CITY and Chunky's role in the film:
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. The role is a lot like what Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan had played in their respective versions of DON.
