New Delhi Actor Kunal Kemmu has been a part of filmmaker Rohit Shetty’s “Golmaal” franchise for a while now. He says the multi-starrer film series works only because of the entire team, including his co-stars Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi and Tusshar Kapoor.
Kunal has been part of “Golmaal 3”, “Golmaal Again”, “Go Goa Gone” and has more multi-starrer movies, including the recently announced “Malang” and the fifth part of “Golmaal”, lined up.
What does he like about being a part of multi-starrer movies? “The most important reason is that it’s not on your shoulders,” he replied with a laugh. But that’s not the only reason. “It’s the story that always attracts me. A film like ‘Golmaal’ only works because of all of us. It is as much Ajay’s film as it is mine or Arshad’s or Tusshar’s. These are the stories of the gang,” Kunal told this reporter in a telephonic interview. “I do have a solo film coming out this year. It’s a fun-filled film. I am trying to do multiple things which I kind of enjoy doing,” added the “Kalyug” actor.
He feels that as an actor, nobody really knows what’s going to work. “If we knew we would all be doing successful films. It is unpredictable… what kind of film will open… how on a Friday. Multi-starrers have gone down, newcomers’ films have worked. So, there is some formula that none of us actually know,” said Kunal.
He is currently tied up with his maiden web series “Abhay”, an eight-episode crime thriller on ZEE5.”It’s a new platform for me and new experience. It’s a longer commitment. By the time I will be done with eight episodes, there will be about seven hours of footage. So playing a character for seven hours and playing a character for two hours on screen… There’s a difference. It’s a process that I am enjoying,” he said.
