Kunal, being Soha's fiance, shares a very crucial space amongst the Pataudis. But, his absence at the lunch, did raise many eyebrows. Talking to a leading daily, Khemu said, "Yes, I missed that. But otherwise, I am very much here with the family and it's wonderful out here in London." Though Kunal's clarification regarding the issue is understandable, but we fail to understand the reason behind this.
Sources informed the daily that unlike Kareena, Kunal is yet to find a place in the Pataudi family portrait. Sources also say that Kunal is an 'intrinsically shy person', so it takes time for him to blend with people. Hence, this is one of the possible reasons why Kunal chose to stay away from public appearances with the Pataudi family.
