The poster of Sajid Nadiadwala and Kabir Khan’s Chandu Champion has come like a whiff of fresh air in the trade burdened by unfailing losses. The poster, released today (May 15), shows Kartik Aaryan running like an athletic. Just one look at the compelling poster underlines the fact that Kartik has undergone a major transformation for the athlete’s role which the conscientious actor considers very important for his career. The actor lost 18 kgs. in a matter of as many months for the film which went on the sets in July last year in London. Shooting was completed in January this year, and the film is slated to release on 14th June.

 

Chandu Champion is a biopic of India’s first Paralympic gold medalist Murlikant Petkar. Paralympic? But Kartik Aryan doesn’t look like a paraplegic in the poster. Well, if you read the uplifting story of Murlikant Petkar, you will know what the poster indicates. Anyway, suffice it to say that the poster has brought back smiles on the faces of the trade people. Films have been flopping at the ticket windows one after the other, throwing the trade in general and exhibitors in particular in a state of despondency. The poster of CC has infused hope in the trade people. Could this be the saviour which the industry is so badly looking for?
