One of the top heroes of ’80s and ’90s, Chunky Pandey has entertained us with his epic comic timing in the past and is back with great films like ‘Saaho‘, ‘Housefull franchise’ in different kinds of roles recently. After the success of ‘Tap Tap’, Chunky Pandey is gearing up for his next short film called ‘DHONU’ by the budding producer-director Deepak Ranjan Panda, on a digital platform.
The short film ‘Dhonu’ is a story about believing in dreams and to keep on struggling in the dream city Mumbai to make your dream come true.
Talking about his film, producer-director Deepak Ranjan Panda shares, “I’m very excited about my upcoming film and we have roped in Chunky Pandey as a protagonist. I had been working on the script of Dhonu for a very long time and written the script by imagining him as ‘Dhonu’. It wasn’t easy for a fresh director to convince the versatile actor to believe in his vision, but after quite a few narrations, I convinced him to be a part of it. I had to convince him as I knew if he wouldn’t have agreed to do the film, I wouldn’t have made Dhonu with any other actor since the character demanded Chunky Pandey the most”.
Chunky Pandey added, “This is my first collaboration with Deepak. When he discussed this project with me, I took time and realized after a few narrations that I had to be a part of it. This film is a rare gem and this kind of cinema comes far in-between so you can’t let go of such an opportunity. I’m very sure that this film will leave an impression.”
The film will have a social message with a pinch of comedy. Chunky Pandey is playing the role of a rhymester as a protagonist. This film boasts of the stellar cast such as Meiyang Chang, Anshuman Jha, laughter challenge finalist Jay Vijay Sachan, Supriya Roy & Kurush Deboo.
The releasing date of the film will be announced soon. In the pipeline, after this short film, Deepak Ranjan Panda will be directing his dream project which will be a feature film.
