Lack of good offers has made Kunal Kapoor develop his own stories, ranging from a romantic-comedy to a biopic, but the actor said that acting would remain his top priority. “I felt the content that I was looking for was not coming my way. So I decided to develop things in which I had my heart. I am working on four scripts and I am very excited about it,” Kunal said.

The actor said that the four stories are different from each other and he might even act in them. “There is an out-an-out action film, an ensemble film set in Varanasi, another ensemble romantic-comedy set in Punjab and a biopic,” he said.

He added that an official announcement would be made soon and he might act in all four of them. “I enjoy every aspect of filmmaking. I did start as an assistant director so, at some point, I would like to direct. But today acting is my top priority and I would like to focus on that,” the 38-year-old actor said.


He may not be seen frequently in films as the exciting offers are few and far between but the actor said that he tries his best to display his versatility in his work. “In the recent past, I had the chance to work with directors like Tigmanshu Dhulia, Gauri Shinde, Reema Kagti and Jayaraj. From playing a soldier (‘Raagdesh’) or a hockey player (‘Gold) or a producer (‘Dear Zindagi’) or an 18th century warrior (‘Veeram’). I feel great that the work has been diverse. It is essential to be seen as an actor but there is no point in doing work that you do not believe in. Even if it is one film a year, I am OK with it. I never approach films as big or small. If the script is interesting, I do it,” he said.
