Script works for films, not star-cast: Kunal Kemmu
By Hindustan Times
Actor Kunal Kemmu believes that the success of a film depends upon impressive storyline and not on the number of big names in the cast. "Films are not about solo hero or multi-starrer. They are about stories. I don't think it is always a serious attempt from anybody's (actor or filmmaker)
side to do a multi-starrer or solo," Kunal told IANS.
"Sometimes there is story of a couple, which becomes a love story, sometimes there are stories of an individual which becomes a biopic. In the same way, we have stories of families," he added.
The actor made his debut in Bollywood with the 2005 released Kalyug, which dealt with the issue of pornography followed by Traffic Signal that peeped into the lives of the poor struggling for survival at traffic signals.
Asked if he plans to do more such issue-based cinema, the actor says he is open to any kind of genre as long as the script is good.
"I basically do the work that comes my way. I hear the story. I do it if I like it. As an actor I wish to do a lot of genres. I think Bollywood is going through a most interesting time currently because you get an opportunity to make films that you like," Kunal said.
"I don't like to limit myself with one genre. It might get boring. A frequent change works therapeutically for an actor," he added.
Last seen in director Vishal Mahadkar's Blood Money, Kunal is currently working for Go Goa Gone.
The actor calls it as his baby project as he is also the scriptwriter.
"I call this my baby film. It is a very special because I have been associated with the film from the day the idea came. So it was amazing when we were writing the film. It's one thing to conceptualize things and another thing to be able to shoot it well. I would have got it made any how," he said.
Co-directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., Go Goa Gone also stars Saif Ali Khan, Vir Das and Puja Gupta.
