Suyash 'Chunky' Pandey (born 26 September 1962) is an Indian film actor who has appeared in Bollywood films. He has been in over 80 movies in a career that has spanned over two decades. He was nominated once for his supportive role in Tezaab. He was a lead hero in Hindi films from 1987 to 1994, but his movies were more successful in 1987–1992. He is best known for playing supporting "sidekick" roles for lead heroes like Rajesh Khanna, Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol and Govinda. After numerous flops as the lead hero since 1993, his demand in Bollywood began to fade. Chunky then worked in Bangladeshi cinema from 1995 and most of his movies in Bangladesh were successful.[citation needed] Chunky Pandey returned to Bollywood in 2003 as a character actor, being cast mainly in supporting comedic roles. Chunky says his real life inspirations are Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan.
