The trailer, which portrays the emotional journey and trauma of India’s first Paralympic gold medalist, Murlikant Petkar, portrayed by Kartik, left the audience with goosebumps. Petkar was a boxer before he suffered permanent disabilities in the India-Pakistan war in 1965 and switched to swimming, athletics, table tennis and slalom after sustaining severe bullet injuries during combat.

Kabir Khan expressed his gratitude to Gwalior, saying the city gave him Chandu. Kartik shared that returning to Gwalior, where his Bollywood dreams began, made the launch extra special.

Kabir, known for his heartwarming storytelling and ability to elicit stellar performances from his actors, appears to be working his magic once again with Chandu Champion. Jointly produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Kabir Khan, the film is set for a worldwide release on June 14.
