Over a decade ago, in the year 1996, a tall droopy-eyed actor made quite an impressive debut with Gulzar's Maachis. He followed it up with some decent flicks like Tere Mere Sapne and Daag-The Fire. What's more he even got to romance top actresses like Preity Zinta in Kya Kehna and Aishwarya Bachchan in Josh. Post that however, he did some forgettable flicks like Aamdani Athanni Kharcha Rupaiya, Bharat Bhagya Vidhata and the much delayed Sarhad Paar. We are talking about Chandrachur Singh, who after that phase seemed to have disappeared into kind of a self-imposed exile.
Now comes news that the actor is making a comeback into the big bad world of films with a film titled Maruti Mera Dost to be produced by his brother Abhimanyu Singh (Contiloe Films). The film in question is apparently a children's film and would also star child artiste Swini Khara (of Cheeni Kum fame).
The film which is expected to go on the floors in the second week of February will be directed by debutant Raju Manikya.
While the actor was missing from action, there were a lot of rumors doing rounds of him having quit Bollywood since he couldn't cope up with the stress levels etc. However, the actor denies any such talk and says that now is the right time to get back to action considering the scope for different films with the multiplex-culture.
Well, here's hoping Chandrachur 'Rocky' Singh does have a successful comeback to Bollywood.
