Hold on to your seat belts as Chunky Pandey is promising a mega laugh outing in SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON, with him playing the role of an 'acting guru'. Aptly named Guru Kapoor, Chunky not just plays an 'acting guru' in the film but also a star secretary. The person who ropes him in as his secretary? Arshad Warsi, who himself plays a bad actor in the film who turns out to be a superstar!

Confirms Chunky who goes back a long way when it comes to working with Anil Kapoor. 'Yes, I play the role of an 'acting guru' in the film who is also a star secretary. In fact, you could say that I play an 'overacting guru'. Now does that sound convincing', he quips.

CHECK OUT : Chunky Pandey's big ticket 

More than 20 years after they first created magic in TEZAAB (1988), Anil Kapoor and Chunky Pandey have come together again with SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON.How does Chunky Pandey's role as an 'acting guru' come into picture for this film which hinges on the characters of Akshaye Khanna, Arshad Warsi and Amrita Rao?

'SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON has a flavour of Bollywood and touches upon various layers which are prevalent here. Learning how to act is one of them. But no, SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON is not a spoof on Bollywood. We are just trying to tell a tale in a lighter vein', says Chunky, 'Both Akshaye Khanna and Arshad Warsi are simply terrific when it comes to comic timing. It was absolutely fun shooting for the film. Along with Neeraj, it was a riot on the sets.'
