The first question I ask Kunal is, where has he disappeared? Kunal laughs, "Can you believe it, I haven't had a release since two years? (jokes) I am following (his good friend) Hrithik's footsteps." He gets serious instantaneously, "But it's going to change now. I am not going to be overtly choosy now. I am meeting film-makers, listening to film scripts and if all goes well, you will hear a couple of film announcements shortly."
Kunal is looking forward to Lamhaa with bated breath. "It has shaped up exceedingly well. Besides a gripping story, its the first film to be filmed in Kashmir in recent times. Lamhaa has straight-out-of-life characters and it had to be shot in the state. Shooting in Kashmir was an enriching experience and gives the film a stunning look," Kunal states.
Kunal has the looks and most importantly, the talent. All he needs is one major Hit to cement his status in this competitive industry.
Generally, actors are known to go that extra mile when it comes to being in the public eye. At least most actors are known to be go-getters. But Kunal Kapoor, who has worked with several reputed names in the past, remains an exception. The actor hasn't had a single release since Bachna Ae Haseeno, which was released in 2008. The talented actor will now be seen in Lamhaa, enacting a significant role with experienced actors such as Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu and Anupam Kher.
