Chunkey Pandey Movie Career:
The 90s were nothing special for Chunky. While superstars like Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan joined the romantic heroes, stars like Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan and Sunil Shetty were recognized as action heroes.
The advent of the 1990s saw a new wave of actors like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan taking on roles as “romantic heroes”, while Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Ajay Devgan grabbed the “action hero” roles. Pandey found it difficult to slot himself in either category.
In addition, by the late nineties, solo-hero films were back in vogue instead of the multi-hero films in which Pandey was generally cast.
Pandey grew increasingly tired of playing second fiddle to more prominent actors, but had difficulty being seen as marketable, other than supporting household names. He moved to act as hero in Bangladesh films.
In 1995, he was offered his first films as the lead hero in Bangladeshi films. He acted in six films between 1995 and 1997 as hero in Bangladesh and all of them were successful. Between 1997 and 2002, he received minimal work in Bollywood, playing supporting roles in low-budget films like Tirchhi Topiwale, Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan, Kaun Rokega Mujhe and Jwalamukhi.
It was difficult for Chunky to find himself in these categories. During this time the directors started offering him Hero’s brother or other supporting role, which did not suit Chunky.
