According to a leading daily, Bollywood star Chunkey Pandey—a popular name in the 90’s—has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Prabhas starrer ‘Sahoo’. This will mark his debut in Tamil and Telugu cinema. Confirming this, a source said that Pandey liked the script and agreed to be a part of the film in no time.
“The rumours are true and Chunky Pandey has been brought on board to play a pivotal role in the film. He was impressed with Sujeeth’s script and was excited to be part of a film like Saaho,” added the source.
Well, we must say that this is some awesome news and could boost the film’s prospects in the Hindi market. Moreover, it could help Pandey add new life to his career.
Interestingly, he is not the only Bollywood star who’s a part of ‘Sahoo’. Neil Nitin Mukesh too is a part of the film. He will be seen playing a negative role here. Sometime ago, he had opened up about his role and revealed that he’ll be playing a ‘mega villain’ in ‘Sahoo’.
“This is a larger-than-life film and, post Baahubali, the entire nation is rooting for Prabhas. And where there is a mega hero, there will always be a mega villain too. My character has many shades like every other character in the film,”he had added.
In case you did not know, Sahoo is an action-thriller and features Prabhas in a brand new avatar. It has already created a buzz amongst fans courtesy its teaser and will hit screens in 2018.
