Actor Kunal Kapoor, who had assisted filmmaker Rakesh Omprakash Mehra in “Aks”, plans to direct a short film soon.
“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,” Kunal told IANS.
Asked about the subject of his short film, he replied, “There are a lot of ideas in my mind right now. I have an idea almost every day, but I have to develop the subject.”
As an actor he wants to stick to commercial films.
“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.”
“I want to be part of stories that can reach out to as many people as possible,” he added.
Kunal is currently gearing up for “Luv Shuv The Chicken Khurana” release. Made by director Sameer Sharma, it is slated for a Nov 2 release.
