Kunal ready for exam!


By Hindustan Times

NEW DELHI, Dec. 10 -- Playing a student in Rang De Basanti (2008) is very different from actually fitting in study time between hectic shooting schedules. But actor Kunal Kapoor, who has long harboured ambitions of getting proper flight training, and acquiring a valid pilot's licence, has made time between the shooting schedules of his next comedy film, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, to concentrate on his final exam.

"Flying planes is my second passion after acting. I have applied for a pilot's licence, for which I need to answer an exam. So, these days, physics and mathematic are on my mind," says the 36-year-old actor, who is relieved to have reached the last stages of his preparation, adding, "I will be a professional pilot soon."

Meanwhile, the actor is excited about shooting for the madcap comedy, directed by Sameer Sharma, which is also filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's first family entertainer in collaboration with UTV Spotboy. "We live in a country, which is obsessed with food, but we've never had a film on how families bond over food," he says.
