The actor once talked about the reasons that his film career saw such a long lull. From lack of good offers to a serious injury, he talked about it all. The actor hurt his shoulder while jet skiing in Goa in 2000. Speaking about the incident and he said, “I was water skiing in Goa and I missed my grip. The speed boat was moving at a high speed and the enormous force pulled my right hand out of the shoulder joint. I am lucky that my hand didn’t get torn off from my body because when I fell with a thud on the water surface, my right hand was only hanging on my muscle and skin.” Chandrachur said that after sitting at home for eight years, it was difficult to get new projects. “The projects got worse and I never felt like saying yes to them.”
When asked about the opportunity he lost due to injury. He said, “In many actually, because It had also got to do with, when I was working in films, it used to get stalled, even though I did physiotherapy and all that, if my shoulder would get dislocated during the shoot, it would stop the shoot for some days, so I could heal. I did physiotherapy and surgery but the problem recurred. It was one of the things which pulled you down, professionally definitely.”
Chandrachur made his acting debut with Tere mere sapne, along with Arshad Warsi. He was in Gulzar’s Maachis, opposite Tabu. His performance in that film got him the Filmfare for best male debut.
