Happy Birthday Chunky Panday: Five Best Villain Performances by the Actor
Chunky Panday, who is better known as one of the best comic actors, turns 58 today. Chunky started his career in Bollywood with the 1987 film Aag Hi Aag opposite Neelam Kothari. However, the actor gained popularity with a supporting role in Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit starrer 'Tezaab'. In a career spanning over 30 years, Chunky has worked in over 80 movies. He also has done many hit Bangladeshi films.
Chunky has been known for her amazing comic timing but the actor decided not to stick to a particular genre and has delivered some stunning performances in grey shades too. Here are some of his best villainous roles:

The film was based on the story of eleven prostitutes who refuse to leave their brothel during the India Pakistan partition. The actor has stunned everyone with his character in bald pate, kohl-lined eyes and tobacco-stained teeth. Chunky essayed the role of a goon who was hired to eliminate Begum Jaan and other prostitutes from the brothel.
Abhay 2- Abhay 2 is a Zee 5 original series directed by Ken Ghosh. The series starred Kunal Kemmu as a cop while Chunky Panday played a double-faced serial killer named Harsh.
