The handsome Kunal Kapoor will be seen on the silver screen after a long time in 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' opposite Huma Qureshi. in.com sat the actor down to find out just where he'd been and what his favourite foods are.
Like a good mamma's boy, when asked about his favourite dish, pat comes the answer, "I love my mom's khatti-meethi dal. It's my favourite from her kitchen."
Reports recently suggested that Kapoor wanted to open a restaurant, but the actor clarifies, "I was in Punjab and the reporters asked me if I wanted to open up a restaurant. It was just a regular question that was blown out of proportion. But yes, I would love to open a Punjabi, dhaba-style restaurant with lots of lanterns inside and huge trucks parked outside."
His own cooking skills aren't much to boast about. "I can boil eggs, make Maggi and even egg bhurji. But my cooking experiments in the kitchen are limited to only this. I am not much of a cook."
Food talk apart, why haven't we seen much of Kapoor in recent times. "I was working in Mr. India 2, hence the disappearing act," he says with a laugh. He continues on a more serious note, "For almost one and a half years, I was busy with Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana and a lot of work has gone into it, apart from just acting. That took up a lot of my time. Also I am very choosy. I will do a movie, only if the script appeals to me. Maybe lack of good scripts kept me away".
So is his character in 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' like him? "Omi Khurana (the character's name) is rather detached in life, whereas I am not. We are very different, in that sense. I have character, he doesn't," he says with a laugh.
Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana is releasing on November 2.
