Chunky Pandey says that Sajid Khan, the director of the first two parts of the 'Housefull' franchise, made the film on the sets, while 'Housefull 3' director duo Farhad-Sajid do a lot of homework.
"First two it was Sajid Khan and here there is Sajid-Farhad; yes, there is a difference. Actually I don't even know the D of direction. But both are very different. Sajid Khan makes the film on set, and Sajid-Farhad bhai basically do a lot of homework and planning. And behind them there is the hand of Sajid Nadiadwala (producer), which is the biggest hand," said Chunky on the sets of TV show 'The Kapil Sharma Show' to promote the film.
Chunky, along with Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Boman Irani and Jacqueline Fernandez are the ones to have been a part of all three parts of the 'Housefull' franchise. His line, "I'm joking" has been one of the popular ones of of the franchise, even featuring in the trailer of 'Housefull 3'.
"It is the third edition of 'Housefull', I was there in the first and second, thank god! I'm in the third part. With every installment, 'Housefull' is becoming bigger and the house becomes bigger; and this one is a laughter riot. There are two Chunkys in this. I'm playing the role of a cook, and there is a twin brother of mine, who is roaming around like an astrologer in London," he said.
His characters are named Aakhri Pasta and Aakhri Aastha.
