Chandrachur Singh (born 11 October 1968) is an Indian actor, who works in Bollywood films. He won the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut for his performance in Maachis.

Early life[edit]

He attended Welham Boys' School, The Doon School, Dehradun and St. Stephens, New Delhi.[citation needed] [2]

Personal life[edit]

Singh has two younger brothers: Aditya Singh and Abhimanyu Singh.[3] [2] chandrachur Singh was active in an election campaign in Delhi.[4]


Singh made his acting debut in 1996 in Tere Mere Sapne which was produced under Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited. Later that year he starred alongside Tabu in Maachis for which he won the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. He appeared in several films as a leading actor which failed to do well, but he had success with his lead roles in the multi-starers Daag: The Fire (1999) opposite Sanjay Dutt, Kya Kehna (2000) opposite Preity Zinta and Josh (2000) opposite Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh Khan. He was nominated for Filmfare awards on two occasions, in different categories.[2]

After initial successes, his career went into a low, because of multiple dislocations of his shoulder joint, which he suffered while water skiing in Goa. Because of the pain on his shoulder, he couldn't work out or stay fit which caused him to gain weight and lose roles. His last few releases included Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiyaa (2001), Bharat Bhagya Vidhata (2002) and the delayed release Sarhad Paar which was shot in 2002 and released in 2006. All three films flopped at the box office.[2]

In 2012, he made a comeback with the multi-starer film Chaar Din Ki Chandni. The film featured Tusshar Kapoor, Kulraj Randhawa, Anupam Kher, Om Puri and Farida Jalal in lead roles. Chaar Din Ki Chandni received a mixed response from critics, and turned out to be a flop at most places in India. From 2012–present, he has joined Bollywood once again as an actor. That same year he played a small role in the English-language film The Reluctant Fundamentalist. He last appeared in Zilla Ghaziabad which had been delayed for years, however, was released in August 2013. [2]
