November 29, 2010 : Bollywood director and producer Kunal Kohli is addicted to love. Well, not literally, but the filmmaker will again make a love story with actor Shahid Kapoor in the lead. So isn’t Kunal Kohli afraid of getting typecast as a filmmaker who deals with only one genre of cinema? No, shoots the man who has made some of the most wonderful love stories under the Yash Raj banner. Kunal Kohli candidly admits that he loves making love stories and will continue making them as long as he has different stories to tell.
The filmmaker is of the opinion that a love story can be dealt with from different angles and he does not think that all those have been saturated. While his first project with Yash Raj Films Mujhse Dosti Karoge was a youth love story, Hum Tum was about a widow falling in love all over again, and Fanaa dealt with consequences of a terrorist falling in love. In Break Ke Baad, his latest release as producer, Kunal Kohli delves on the space that couples require while being in a relationship. Similarly, his upcoming project with Shahid Kapoor will also be his personal take on a modern relationship, confirms Kunal Kohli, who is returning to directing after a long span of time.
Kunal Kohli is still in search of a female lead for his yet untitled love story. In a statement to the media, the filmmaker said that there are a lot of things in a 21st century relationship that are still left untouched by Bollywood films. And it is these details which he would like to show in his future project with Shahid Kapoor which goes on floors by April next year.
