The 51-year-old actor also says that he was surprised when offered a role in the movie, which the national-award winning filmmaker especially penned down for Chunky.

"I don't belong to Tigmanshu's kind of films. When he called me I thought somebody is playing a prank with me. He wanted me to bring newness to the character of London Tiwari. He wrote it so brilliantly that the whole thing became very easy for me. He is good actor too so I just mimicked him for this role," Chunky said.

Chunky says he is already getting appreciation from the industry for his unique character. "My character is on the lines of the roles played by actors like Kanhaiyalal and Jeevan. Vishal Bhardwaj and Anurag Kashyap congratulated me after seeing the promo of the film," he said.

"I get bored of things very quickly. I was getting similar roles in Bollywood after a point of time and there was nothing exciting about it. So, I shifted my base to Bangladeshi films,But one day my wife told me that I should be back to my roots because there is a generation who doesn't know who Chunky Panday is!" he said.

Apart from 'Bullett Raja', Chunky is also excited about his upcoming project 'Disco Valley', a sex-comedy based on the last day of the world.

He will also be seen in Satish Kaushik's 'Gang of Ghost' in which his character is a tribute to veteran actor K L Saigal. Chunky is also starring in Sajid Khan's 'Himmatwala'.
