Right scripts have not been coming my way: Kunal Kapoor
"Unfortunately the right scripts have not been coming my way. I feel it is better not to be seen than to be seen in films I don't believe in. So even if I am doing little work, it's fine," said the actor, who has been a part of films like 'Rang De Basanti' and 'Lamhaa'.
His kind of films should be entertaining, but with a level of sensibility in the script. One of the directors, according to Kunal, who has achieved that is Rajkumar Hirani.
"I want to be involved with different movies, but it is important for me that the movie has a message and a certain sensibility. Nowadays, people feel entertainment means mindless fun. For me, it is important to entertain (through my movies) and have some sense in it as well," said Kunal.
"Rajkumar Hirani is one director who does it well. Also, films like 'Rang De Basanti', 'Chak De! India' proved that a film can have sensibility and at the same time can be entertaining. These are the films which I look for," he added.
The 34-year-old is now eagerly looking forward to the release of 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' and calls it one of his challenging films.
"There is a trap in playing a role like this. There is a chance of making it over the top because I am playing a Punjabi character. The challenge for us was to make him normal and also to show him as a guy who is lost and trying to find his way back. So keeping it subtle was a challenge for me," he said.
The film, produced by Anurag Kashyap, features Huma Qureshi as the female lead. Directed by Sameer Sharma, the film releases on November 2.
Kunal likes to be involved in his films from the inception level and his new film 'Luv Shuv...' was no different.
"Even in 'Luv Shuv...' me and the director got together and wrote the story. It was an idea which came out of the conversations which we had," Kunal told us in an interview.
"For me, it is important that I am involved in a film right from the inception. So, I am writing some stuff with people, who I would really like to work with," he added.
