Kunal Kapoor: My wife and I enjoy having a life outside the movies | Eagles Vine

Kunal Kapoor became an overnight sensation with ‘Rang De Basanti’ and the film’s popularity catapulted his career to great heights. Ask him one good memory from his journey and he reminisces, “There have been many good things, but when ‘Rang De Basanti’ happened, I remember during this one theatre visit when a particular person read out a letter from his sister who was in the states. That letter said, ‘I am a doctor and after watching your movie I want to come back to India because the RDB dialogue ‘kuch badalna hai toh khud ko badalna hoga’ really affected me’. And that made me realise the power of art and the possibility of what happens when it goes right.”

When asked to point out any unpleasant experience, the actor quips, “As far as bad goes, there have been so many instances where, I don’t want to get into specifics, but, you know, you sign a film and you think it’s going to turn out in a certain way. And, sometimes it doesn’t, you know that it’s not turned out right when you’re watching the preview. That gives you a sinking feeling. Sometimes a good script doesn’t translate into a good film and that can be very disappointing.”
