Kunaal spoke about acting in 1-888-Dial-India, which I directed.
Actor Kunaal Roy Kapur is no newbie to the stage. He’s been doing it since he was 13. Even though he earned tremendous success with the film Delhi Belly and is suddenly in the limelight, Kunaal has been having his love affair with the theatre for almost 15 years now.
And he promises that affair will never end. To prove his point, he reveals that he’s signed on a comedy after much deliberation, but his focus at the moment is on the play, 1-888 DIAL INDIA that he’ll soon be seen performing in.
Directed by Anuvab Pal and produced by Raell Padamsee, the play also stars Ashwin Mushran, Sophie Choudry, Prerna Chawla, Faezeh Jalali, Siddharth Kumar and Ratnabali Bhattacharjee.
Kunaal’s association with Anuvab goes back a long way. “I and Anuvab have been working together for a while now. We met on the sets of Loins of Punjab and then it continued into The President is coming. What appealed to me about the play is my character’s never-say-die attitude. Personally, I put moral barriers to how far I’d go to get things done, but this guy doesn’t think in terms of good and bad,” he says.
