Talking about his debut in Marathi film, Chunky said, “In the last 34 years I am in film Industry. I started my career in 1987. I really feel ashamed that I never got a chance to work in Marathi film. This is my first time I am working in Marathi film. I have given my heart and soul for doing this film. But, when first I heard the script, I refused to sign the film. Even the director was stunned on my refusal. Basically, I am playing the role of an Arabi in the film. And the reason for rejecting was the same. I was scared I might get banned in the Arab country. But I am happy, that my role in the film is very vital.”
