Kunal Kapoor (born 18 October 1975) is an Indian actor. Kunal has attended acting workshops at Mumbai’s Prithvi Theatre and a course at the Namit Kishore Academy.
Kunal’s tryst with cinema began as an assistant director to Rakesh Mehra in Aks. But the call for acting proved far stronger, and Kunal found himself moving on.
Making a most unconventional debut with Meenaxi: A tale of 3 cities, the critically acclaimed actor took things at his own pace thereafter. Since over a year now, Kunal has also been associated with Naseeruddin Shah’s theatre group.
His success with Rang De Basanti has given Kunal a much wider fan following than he had had before. Kunal got noticed for his performances in Aaja Nachle and Laga Chunari Mein Daag. Kunal was seen recently in an excellent cameo in the movie Bachna Ae Haseeno and in Shyam Benegal's Welcome To Sajjanpur.
