Chunky Pandey was born in Bombay, India on September 26, 1962 in a non-film household.
Chunky’s real name is Suyash Sharad Pandey, but is also known as Chandrakant Pandey. He shot into fame with a secondary role in ‘Tezaab’ which had Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit in the lead roles. He continued to meet considerable success in secondary and supportive roles, but has yet to make a name for himself as a lead hero.
After his marriage to Bhavna in 1998, he decided to act in Bangla movies, and achieved considerable success there, even though he has no knowledge of Bangla, and had his voice dubbed.
After the birth of two daughters, he decided to make a comeback to Bollywood during 2002 and ended up appearing in over a dozen movies.
He has appeared in over 55 movies, and has been nominated once for his supportive role in ‘Tezaab’.
Apart from appearing in movies, Chunky is also involved in a business ‘Bollywood Electric’ which hosts stage shows. He and Bhavna also run a health food restaurant in Mumbai, India.
