Actor Kunal Kapoor who was a part of the writing process for his latest film Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana right from the start, says he wants to take his new found interest forward.
The 35- year old is currently busy putting together few scripts for films.
“I have been working on something like I did in 'Luv Shuv...' There are three to four stories that I have been working on.
I am not writing a whole script, I am somebody who is more like a bouncing board, who ideates and puts together things. So, hopefully things will fall into place soon,” Kunal said.
When asked if he plans to turn director any time soon, he responded, “Directors have to pamper egos and actors get their egos pampered. Right now I am happy being pampered and have no plans to direct a film.”
'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana', co-produced by Anurag Kashyap and UTV Motion Pictures and directed by newcomer Sameer Sharma, was made within a budget of Rs 3 crore but managed to set the cash registers ringing.
“It is a film I believed in very strongly. Sameer and I were doing something different from what Punjab is perceived as and nobody wanted to take a chance with it. But Anurag did and now to see the film having the effect that we wanted, is absolutely amazing,” he added.
Kunal is also set to star in Kashyap’s film, where he will play Raj Comics’ superhero Doga. He will also appear in Chamkila, a biography of controversial Punjabi singer Amar Singh Chamkila.
“Doga is very far away. Next year Anurag will start shooting a film called 'Bombay Velvet'. So Doga will start after that. Chamkila is something I am very excited about. We are working on putting the script together,” he said.
