During his recent podcast with Time Out With Ankit, Chunky fondly recalled, “I think one of his first friends in Bombay when he arrived was my younger brother Chikki. They’re still the best of friends. So, at that time, they (Shah Rukh and Gauri) were renting a place and they used to come to meet my brother, sab baith ke video cassettes dekhte the. So he and Gauri were in my house quite often.”
Reflecting on Shah Rukh Khan’s journey to stardom, Chunky expressed his early belief in Shah Rukh’s potential. He remarked, “With Shah Rukh, I was so sure this boy is gonna become a superstar. Because he had that in him, you can see that fire…He’s always had that. That talent has always been there with him before he became the superstar.”

Chunky also praised SRK’s consistency and authenticity, noting, “He’s very confident and he knew where he was going. I mean, yeah, of course very proud that I’ve known him since then. He hasn’t changed.”
