Kunal Kemmu: A film like ‘Golmaal’ only works because of the entire team
Recently, reports emerged that Rohit Shetty is planning to make ‘Golmaal 5’. All the four installments of the ‘Golmaal’ franchise have earned well at the box-office. The fourth installment of the ‘Golmaal’ franchise ‘Golmaal Again’ was released on 20 October, 2017 and starred Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Kemmu and Pareeniti Chopra among others. Interestingly, ‘Golmaal’ is now the fifth-highest-grossing film series in Bollywood. Kunal Kemmu, who has been a part of ‘Golmaal’ franchise for a while now, feels that the multi-starrer film series works only because of the entire team.
In a telephonic interview with the news agency IANS, Kunal said, “It’s the story that always attracts me. A film like ‘Golmaal’ only works because of all of us. It is as much Ajay’s film as it is mine or Arshad’s or Tusshar’s. These are the stories of the gang.”
On being asked about his upcoming solo films, the ‘Kalyug’ actor said, “I do have a solo film coming out this year. It’s a fun-filled film. I am trying to do multiple things which I kind of enjoy doing. If we knew, we would all be doing successful films. It is unpredictable… what kind of film will open… how on a Friday. Multi-starrers have gone down, newcomers’ films have worked. So, there is some formula that none of us actually know,” Kunal added.
Talking about his maiden web series ‘Abhay’, he said, “It’s a new platform for me and a new experience. It’s a longer commitment. By the time I will be done with eight episodes, there will be about seven hours of footage. So playing a character for seven hours and playing a character for two hours on screen… There’s a difference. It’s a process that I am enjoying.”
