After Big B and SRK, Chunky to play ‘Don’November 14th, 2008 - 3:23 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
If you can’t tolerate one Chunky Panday, two would be double trouble. And that’s going to be the case in Anubhav Sinha’s ‘Sankat City’ directed by Pankaj Advani. Chunky, for the first time in his career, is playing a double role. And guess what! It’s a take-off on ‘Don’ (do we see Bachchan and SRK raising eyebrows already). The film co-stars KK Mennon and Rimii Sen.
“The role is a lot like what SRK and Big B 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,” informs his publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
It is also said that Chunky is very interested in a full-fledged negative role now. The publicist reveals that the actor feels that after Amjad Khan and Amrish Puri, the concept of the villain is dying, and is keen someone would write a great negative role for him.
