Kunal Kapoor to direct a short film!

The ‘Rang De Basanti’ actor is all set to make his big screen directorial venture, but with a short story. I mean, the popular big screen actor wants to direct a short film. Before, we have already seen him working as an assistant director in Amitabh Bachan’s 2001 film “Aks”, where he assisted filmmaker Rakesh Omprakash Mehra in direction.  

Did you guess who do we talk of? Yes, he is the popular Hindi film actor Kunal Kapoor, who has by now already proved his acting talent in many of the B-town movies. He had also been nominated for the Filmfare award as the Best Supporting Actor for his fantastic characterization in the movie ‘Rang De Basanti’.

However, when we dived into the issue to know its chastity, we got informed that the confirmation is been made by Kunal himself. Talking to a leading daily, Kunal said, “I would like to direct a short film in the near future. I find short films very interesting. So, yes, short film is something that I would love to do. But not the whole feature film right now.”

When asked about the storyline of his movie, Kunal said that though he has been endowed with many ideas in his mind every single day, but has not exactly been able to decide which one to develop into script. But, he confirms to do it soon.

Being a big screen actor, Kunal but emphasizes on commercially successful films than the critically acclaimed ones. “Obviously commercial success matters a lot to me. There is no two ways about it. I think as an actor, the most important thing is that your film should reach out to as many people as possible. If there is a choice between being critically acclaimed and commercial success, then I would chose commercial success,” he said.

Now, the actor is busy promoting his November 2 release “Luv Shuv The Chicken Khurana,” where he has been cast against the latest B-town hottie Huma Qureshi. The movie has been directed and scripted by Sameer Sharma.
