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.
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.
