The actor loves working on the web. “In television, we actors don’t get so much time to prep. Here, we had multiple reading and staging sessions wherein every little detailing was looked into, right from the costumes to the set. Everything is authentic and real,” he says.
Kunal wants to be part of more web series. “I wish to do more of web series and would love to play a grey character like that of Kevin Spacey in House of Cards which is my favorite show of all time,” he says.
He is happy to be back in front of the camera. “The best part about being in front of the camera is that you get to be so many people in just one lifetime. I think that’s what drew me to acting. Like I said earlier, you get to be all the things you are not, which is amazing. I am a good boy in real life, and I get to discover other facets of my personality while acting. So, I would say being able to express is the biggest plus of best an actor,” he says.
