I channel my restless energy in acting, says Kunal
Owing to his good looks and charisma on screen, actor Kunal Kapoor (above) is the heartthrob of many. However, if there’s one grouse his fans have against him, it’s that he doesn’t take up films in bulk.
“I get this complaint from well-wishers: ‘Why such less number of films?”’ says Kunal. “But honestly, I always do films that I believe in, and they are very few and far between. These days, my kind of films are happening so, I am working quite a lot,” he adds.
The actor goes on to say that in the last one year, he has done films such as Veeram, Dear Zindagi, and an English language film titled The Noblemen. “There are two more projects I will work on. It’s quite an interesting phase of my career.”
Kunal started his film career as an assistant director with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra for Aks (2001). “I was a restless child from the beginning and I didn’t know where to channelise that. And then when I started working on a film set, I realised that this is the platform,” he says.
The actor adds that even as an assistant director, he spent time in front of the camera rehearsing with actors. “Gradually, I realised that I want to be an actor. I channel my restless energy in acting,” says Kunal, who made his debut with Meenaxi: A Tale of Three Cities (2003).
