In the 80s and 90s, if there was a hot pair of Govinda-Neelam, then the pair of Chunky Pandey and Neelam was not far behind. Interestingly, Chunky, who has done several films with Neelam like ‘Paap Ki Duniya’, ‘Aag Hi Aag’, ‘Ghar Ka Chirag’, is still a good friend of the ‘jawaani’ girl. Chunky’s wife Bhavana is also good friends with the actress and the two starred together in Karan Johar’s web show ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’. Do they keep visiting each other? Pat arrives Chunky responds: “Oh yes, at times”. And does the theme revolve around the films he made? “Well, sometimes, yeah, references come up. We laugh about it,” he shares.
The conversation that started last weekend talking about the joint appearance of Govinda and Neelam in ‘Super Dancer 4’ goes back to the show. “Oh, that episode was fantastic. I loved watching it. Neelam always made a special pairing with Govinda, but I wish I had gone too, we would have made a great love triangle,” he laughs, “off-screen ,” followed by a pause for effect. After this Chunky told how once Neelam was badly hurt because of him. “When Pahlaj Nihalani told me that my first film (‘Aag Hi Aag’ in 1987) was with Neelam, I went crazy. Neelam was a teen sensation at the time. So, I told her to run everything. Comes – bike, car, horse (I can ride everything—bike, car, horse). Now, in one scene, I have to run with him through a pavilion, and I drop him off the bike. He Burned my leg badly. I apologized deeply, but she was a brave girl. It didn’t take her long to pick it up in her stride,” concluded Chunky.
