Noting that the Indian audience is mature enough to watch adult comedy on the silver screen, Chunky reveals his upcoming film has plenty of double meaning dialogues

Bollywood actor Chunky Pandey is playing a serious-looking baddie in Ekta Kapoor’s much hyped film “Kyaa Supercool Hai Hum” set for release at theatres across the country this Friday.

Speaking about his role in the film which stars Riteish Deshmukh and Tusshar Kapoor in the lead, the hero-turned-comedian says: “For a change, I am essaying Baba 3G, who was in prison for committing a fraud. He has the unique ability to utter his dialogues with a deadpan expression and though he remains serious throughout the film his spoken words will make the audience laugh.”

Pinning hopes on his ability as well as his co-actor Riteish Deshmukh’s comic timing to ensure “Kyaa Supercool Hai Hum” becomes a commercial proposition, the 47-year-old actor says he has had wonderful partnership with Riteish in two ventures. “Both my films with him ‘Housefull’ and ‘Housefull 2’ were huge hits and I am sure this one too will do roaring business.”

The film is a sequel to “Kyaa Kool Hai Hum” released seven years ago. Sachin Yardi, who wrote the script of the earlier film, is directing the new film.

Noting that the Indian audience is mature enough to watch adult comedy on the silver screen, Chunky reveals his upcoming film has plenty of double meaning dialogues. “However, it can be watched by the entire family but every member would have to watch separately. On television we have clean shows but in movies we have to give the public a good reason to stand in long queues and then shell out money to buy tickets. Double meaning dialogues are no big deal. Today, people surf the Internet and watch pornographic sites.”

These days, Chunky is judging a show on Life OK channel. “When the channel approached me I said it would be interesting to get entertained by emerging talent.” He is also busy with a TV show in the US for which he has to constantly shuttle between Los Angeles and Mumbai.
