Popular actor, Chunky Panday is one of the most-loved actors of all time as he never fails to make audiences laugh their hearts out with his superb comic timing in his movies. Not only this, he is also quite respected for even making fun of himself just to entertain the public during his appearances on television reality shows. However, there's no doubt that he is one of the most dashing actors in the history of Indian cinema. Back in the 1990s, Chunky was famous for his charming personality, and it was his humourous nature that was enough to make girls fall in love with him.
For the unversed, it was on January 17, 1998, when million hearts were broken after Chunky Panday had tied the knot with the love of his life, Bhavana Panday. After some years of their happy married life, Chunky and Bhavana had welcomed two adorable daughters, Ananya and Rysa, into their lives. Fast forward to today, the Panday family of four never fails to mesmerise with their close-knitted bond with each other.
During the finale of the popular game-reality show, Khatra Khatra Show, the special host, Farah Khan invited Ananya Panday on the show along with many other popular celebrities from the entertainment industry. During the show, Farah shocked everyone after she opened up about having a crush in the past. The ace filmmaker and producer shared that during the 1990s, she had a massive crush on Ananya's father and further admitted that she had even befriended Bhavana Panday so that she could work with Chunky. However, Farah hilariously stated that after working with her then-crush, Chunky, in a project, she had realised that she was lucky that nothing had happened between her and Chunky. She said:
"After working with him (Chunky), I am glad that nothing happened between us. I also thanked Bhavana for getting married to him."
The surprising and hilarious confession from Farah Khan about crushing on Ananya Panday's father, Chunky Panday, only to realise later that she was lucky not to be in a relationship with him, left everyone on the show in splits. However, Farah's confession didn't go well with the netizens, who trolled her mercilessly for taking a dig at Chunky Panday. While some stated that Chunky got lucky that nothing had happened between him and Farah, many found Farah's confession mean and disrespectful to Chunky, who always takes everyone's harsh comments with a smile. One user even made fun of Farah's husband, Shirish Kunder and wrote, "Oh yeah, inka pati to Tom Cruise hai jaise!" Check out the netizens' reaction:
On May 11, 2022, Ananya Panday had taken to her IG handle and had shared a hilarious video with the ace director, Farah Khan. In the video, we could hear the ace director saying, "Ananya Ananya, you won the National award for Khaali Peeli." After listening to this, Ananya and her stylists' group had started celebrating the moment. But soon, Farah had ended their celebrations with Ananya's father, Chunky Panday's famous dialogue, "I am just joking", from the Housefull film series. As soon as the video had gone live, Anaya's daddy, Chunky Panday had taken a dig at Farah's acting and had commented, "Farah you should get the Award for Overacting in this Video". Soon Farah had given a befitting reply to him by targeting his daughter, Anaya's acting skill set, as she had replied:
"Apni beti ko sambhal pehle."
On the professional front, Chunky Panday was last seen in the third season of Voot's popular series, BAKED.
