KU­NAL KAPOOR,

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).

I al­ways do films that I be­lieve in and they are very few and far be­tween. Now, my kind of films are hap­pen­ing AC­TOR
