Mumbai, Jan. 23 -- While shooting his next directorial in Amritsar, which also marks his acting debut, film-maker Kunal Kohli gave an acting break to an onlooker.
Apparently, Kunal had signed someone to play the character of his brother in the film, but had to get a new person on board for the small role when the former couldn't make it to the shoot.
"Karan Kapoor was supposed to play the role, but when he couldn't make it to the shoot due to illness, Kunal promptly offered the role to a guy from the crowd," says the source close to the film-maker.
Kunal seems to be content with his decision. "Sometimes, the best characters you can cast for a film are the most real people," he says.
