Actor Kunal Kemmu, who is currently enjoying his vacation with his wife Soha Ali Khan and their daughter Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, recently spoke about Farhan Akhtar’s Dil Chahta Hai and Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Farhan’s directorial debut starred Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna, while Zoya Hrithik Roshan’s film featured Abhay Deol, Farhan and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. In an interview recently, Kunal revealed that he loved both films but couldn’t relate to them at all.

Farhan and Zoya’s films are much loved by the audience. But it seems Kunal can’t relate to coming-of-age road movies. Kunal is all set to make his directorial debut with a film titled Madgaon Express which will be supported by Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. Recently, during a conversation with Chalchitra Talks, Kunal called Dil Chahta Hai and ZNMD “ambitious.” The actor said: “Dil Chahta Hai and ZNMD were ambitious. I really liked them but couldn’t identify with them. I had never been to Barcelona. The characters were rich brats. They grow up in places like Melbourne. How would we who are from Mira Road know about that? They have a very different agenda. They find realization about life while diving. We have never dived. If I showed my mother the Tomatina Festival, she would lose it and ask why so many tomatoes have been thrown away.”

The Go Goa Gone actor further added that he wants to make films that are recognizable to ordinary people. Kunal added, “Jokes apart. I mean you got the thing. But you feel these characters have everything. Then I understood that money can’t buy happiness. But I had to represent people like me on screen so that there was relatability is. This got too ambitious. So my pitch to the producers of those movies for my movie was ‘Mere jaise logon ka kya? Unke liye ye picture hai’.”

Kunal’s directorial debut stars Pratik Gandhi, Divyendu Sharma and Nora Fatehi. They have completed the shoot and it will be out this year.
