Chunky Panday needs no introduction. Chunky Panday was one of the most sought-after actors of the 80s and 90s era and has done some outstanding films. Chunky Panday has always been best known for his comedy roles. However, the actor did not always have a smooth career.

Chunky Panday on dealing with the lows in his career

Chunky Panday enjoyed his fair share of fame during the initial stages of his career. The actor realized that by the late 90s and early 2000s, the new generation had completely forgotten Chunky as an actor. When asked about the low phase of his career, Chunky Panday opened up on how he dealt with it. Chunky Panday told news agency PTI that actors need to be 'shameless' in order to be at the top of their game.

Speaking about dealing with the high and low phases of his career Chunky Panday said, "I believe an actor should be shameless. You get into depression when you are sitting at home and have no work, especially after being at the top of your game... where you have seen the highs and people were chasing you."

Chunky Panday has been recently seen playing negative roles. Chunky Pandey was last seen in Sanjay Dutt's Prassthanam in a negative role. This was his third negative role after Begum Jaan and Saho. Chunky Panday seems to enjoy playing the villain.

"A lot of people did not expect me to do a villainous role," said Chunky Panday and he added that he was inspired to take up negative roles after watching Rishi Kapoor as Rauf Lala in Agneepath (2012). I wish I had done this earlier. A hero is very boring. He has to do all the good things... While a villain can do everything," Chunky Panday said to PTI.
