Chandu Champion Trailer: Kartik Aaryan Shines In A Stirring Real Life Tale Of Struggle And Triumph

Get ready, folks. Kartik Aaryan just dropped the trailer of his highly anticipated film Chandu Champion on social media. In Chandu Champion, Kartik Aaryan steps into the shoes of Murlikant Petkar, a Paralympic gold medalist. Murlikant Petkar won the gold medal at the 1970 Commonwealth Games and bagged another gold medal at the 1972 Paralympics in Germany. In the gripping trailer, Kartik Aaryan's character Murli is a man with an unwavering ambition to become a champion. His journey unfolds as he sets his eyes on representing India in the Olympics, leading him to enlist in the Army to sharpen his skills.

However, fate takes a cruel turn as Murli is wounded by nine bullets during the war, plunging him into a two-year coma. Yet, it is his indomitable spirit that shines through as he refuses to succumb to despair, showcasing resilience and determination to rise again. The trailer captures Kartik Aaryan's transformation, depicting him in various phases of Chandu's life, from his army days to his relentless pursuit of boxing despite facing ridicule. The audience witnesses Chandu's arduous journey and the hurdles he overcomes on his path to becoming India's first Paralympic gold medalist.

Captioning the post on Instagram, Kartik Aaryan wrote, "With immense pride and joy, sharing the trailer of my career's toughest and most special film that too from my hometown Gwalior, where I dreamt of becoming an actor, Chandu Champion, the story of a man who refused to surrender. Hope it touches your heart, entertains and inspires you to achieve your goals just like India's pride, Mr Murlikant Petkar.

Katori ne poster hi phaad dia. Ab kal hi ayega poster (The promotional activities were supposed to begin from today but Katori tore the poster. Now, the poster will come tomorrow."
