Right from its inception, Kunal Kapoor was actively involved in the writing process of his recently released film "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana" and the actor says he wants to take his new found interest forward.
Kunal, 35, is currently busy putting together few scripts for films.
"I have been working on something like I did in 'Luv Shuv...' -- to put together a project that I believe in. I am writing and there are three to four stories that I have been working on. I am not writing a whole script, I am somebody who is more like a bouncing board, who ideates and puts together things. So, hopefully things will fall into place soon," Kunal said.
When asked if he plans to turn director any time soon, the actor said, "Directors have to pamper egos and actors get their egos pampered. Right now I am happy being pampered and have no plans to direct a film."
'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana', co-produced by Anurag Kashyap and UTV Motion Pictures and directed by newcomer Sameer Sharma, was made within a budget of Rs 3 crore but managed to set the cash registers ringing. The film set around a chicken recipe, also starred 'Gangs of Wasseypur' girl Huma Qureshi.
"It is a film I believed in very strongly. Sameer and I have known each other for a while. We used to keep talking about the sort of films we'd like to do. We started the process two years back, we took it to lot of people," said Kunal, who was in NCR recently to launch the new men's soap series by Fiama Di Wills.
"We were doing something different from what Punjab is perceived as and nobody wanted to take a chance with it. But Anurag did and now to see the film having the effect that we wanted, is absolutely amazing," he added.
