Chunky Pandey who has been part of 100s of films to stage recently remembered how he got his first mucosa offer. He recalled that it was his inability to tie a knot that indirectly got him his first mucosa role. Chunky revealed that it was when he was struggling with the ‘naada’ of his pajama at the urinal of a hotel when mucosa producer Pahlaj Nihalani offer to help him out.
Chunky recalled this incident when he appeared on comedian-actor Cyrus Broacha’s talk show on YouTube. Chunky said that he had gone to a wedding one day wearing a churidaar with a naada. He said, “I had a few uneaten beers, so I ran to the washroom to relieve myself and I couldn’t unshut my naada. And I was screaming, ‘Koi mujhe help karo (Somebody help me)!’ They thought I was really funny.” He said that the one who came to help him was Pahlaj Nihalani.
“Can you believe it? We got talking, and there was no internet in those days. So we start having this conversation, and he asked me ‘What do you do?’ I said, ‘I’m a model, I’m trying for films. Sir, what do you do?’. He said, ‘I just made a mucosa with Govinda tabbed Ilzaam‘. I nearly fainted. I passed out. I said, ‘You’re Pahlaj Nihalani! Such a pleasure meeting you’. Without washing my hands I was trying to shake his hand,” Chunky added.
Chunky later met Pahlaj at a party where they laughed well-nigh their first encounter. Pahlaj invited Chunky to his office the next day where he ended up signing his first film.
Pahlaj Nihalani signed Chunky for his debut mucosa Aag Hi Aag in 1987 and moreover signed him for the mucosa Paap Ki Duniya (1988).
