Kunal Kapoor is all set to take a new step in the industry as a producer. He has been writing stories ever since his assistant director days. Today he spoke to E Times and said that he always wanted to tell his stories in some way possible. However Kunal says that in recent times the masses have become accustomed to new storytelling formats and fresh concepts as they have seen movies all around the world. This is the opportunity Kunal wants to seize as he knows the audiences are ready for new stories.
Kunal further added in the interview that he loves to tell stories as an actor, producer and director and this time as a producer he wants to bring a story to life with his own vision. Kunal Kapoor is going to make a movie on the life of India’s Winter Olympian – Shiva Keshavan. He is also called India’s fastest man on the ice. Speaking about what drew him to Shiva’s story, the actor said, “He is an amazing athlete. What drew me to Shiva Keshavan was not only the fact that he has represented India in the Olympics six times, but that it was also a story about the spirit of India and the incredible things we manage to achieve with limited resources. It’s a story of resilience and the path less taken; it’s also a celebration of our culture and diversity.” Well, we surely can’t wait for this story to unfold.
Meanwhile Kunal Kapoor will be next seen in The Empire – a series on the Mughal world to stream on Disney + and Hotstar. The series also stars Shabana Azmi, Dino Morea, Drashti Dhami.
