Born on September 26, 1962, Chunkey Pandey is known for acting in Bollywood movies. His real name is Suyash Sharad Panday, but is also known as Chandrakant Pandey. He married Bhavna in 1998 and has two daughters. Starting out his Bollywood career in 1987 with the film Daraar, Pandey shot to the spotlight with his role as Munna's (Anil Kapoor) friend in the movie Tezaab (1988). He is still remember for his role as Akash Bharaj in Vishwatma (1992) and Haricharan in Insaniyat (1994). Unfortunately for Pandey, many of his films in which he had the leading role never did well at the box office. It was always his secondary leading roles that made the most impact. His career began to fade from the limelight in the mid 90s due to the rising popularity and demand of megastars such as Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan & Salman Khan. As a result, Pandey traveled to Bangladesh in the late 1990s to keep his acting career alive. Surprisingly Chunky became a superstar overnight in Bangladesh, starring in numerous Bengali movies. Ironically, Pandey had never spoken Bengali and his voice was dubbed over. He decides to make a comeback to Bollywood during 2002 and ended up appearing in over a dozen movies. He is also known for his comedian role in the movie Fool N Final (2007).
