Chunky Panday Reveals He Was A Casanova Before Bhavana Came Into His Life, 'I Was Going To Marry...'

He has been in the profession for over thirty years and has worked in films like Tezaab, Paap Ki Duniya, Lootere, Apna Sapna Money Money, and many more.

Chunky Panday shares how Bhavana changed his life

Recently, during an interview with Lehren, Chunky shared how Bhavana's arrival completely changed his life. He was first questioned about his life as a casanova, and Chunky said that he had a good life just like any other young boy or girl, generally in their early twenties. However, he added that the arrival of Bhavana grounded him, and he immediately knew that she was the ‘one’ for him. In his words:

“Bhavana was a good lion tamer and a good circus master. I was a casanova for too long. I got married at 35. I think everybody should go through their life and make their own mistakes. Bhavana was one girl… When I met her, within one week, I knew I was going to marry this girl. I don’t know why. I have never felt like that with anyone. Maybe, it’s also about the time.”

Moreover, he mentioned that if his daughters, Ananya and Rysa needed anything, they would immediately call him up. He said:

“Both my girls are really close to Bhavana. Whenever they need something, Papa gets a call. But otherwise, they are very close to their mother. Of course, Bhavana is closer to their age. I am always there when advice is needed.”

“I mean it’s fine. I mean, she is 25. She is earning more money than I am right now. So she is free to do what she wants to. How dare I tell her, my 25-year-old daughter, that you have a boyfriend? I mean I can understand, if she was 14 years old or something, I could interfere but no, no.”
