Ku­nal con­sulted Soha be­fore sign­ing next film

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

Ven­tur­ing into adult com­edy for the first time with his up­com­ing film, ac­tor Ku­nal Kemmu (above), who was a lit­tle re­luc­tant, said he con­sulted his wife Soha Ali Khan (in­set) be­fore sign­ing the film.

The ac­tor, who plays a sales­man in the film, had ini­tially said “no” to the movie helmed by di­rec­tor duo Shantanu Ray Chhibber and Sheer­shak Anand.

“Ac­tu­ally, I said no to the project. If you hear the one line-con­cept, you’d think it might turn out to be em­bar­rass­ing... But then I read the script and was in­trigued by it. It wasn’t em­bar­rass­ing but a very in­tel­li­gently writ­ten film,” Ku­nal says.

Even though he had liked the script, Ku­nal asked Soha for a woman’s per­spec­tive on the film. “I thought, may be I am feel­ing this be­cause I am a guy. So I need to get a woman’s per­spec­tive on this. I asked Soha to read the script. She too had in­hi­bi­tions ini­tially. But then she read it and laughed. She said it wasn’t of­fen­sive at all, at least on the script level. If you be­lieve in it you should go ahead with it,” he said.
