From playing a character with negative shades in the film Malang, showcasing his comic timing in Lootcase to ending the year with his turn as a cop in the second season of crime web series Abhay, Kunal Kemmu impressed fans with varied projects in 2020.
In this exclusive interaction with indianexpress.com, Kunal Kemmu talks about the year gone by and the praise he received for his projects.
Excerpts from the conversation:
How do you look back at 2020?
It’s been a year filled with ups and downs for the whole world. On one hand, the virus made us stop and realise all that we took for granted and how things can change overnight. It’s been more tough for some, than others. On the other hand, it did give some opportunities to some people, myself included. I had a lot of love, appreciation and even box office success come my way with films like Malang and Lootcase, and my web show Abhay.
You delivered projects which were poles apart in terms of genre – Malang, Lootcase and Abhay. Do you feel satisfied with your work this year?
While I’m happy about it, I’m never completely satisfied. And that’s what drives me to do more and better work.
A show or film this year you wished you were a part of, and why?
A couple shows that I really enjoyed watching this year were Scam 1992, Paatal Lok and Taish.
You had a lovely family time, especially with Inaaya during the lockdown. Was there anything you discovered about her and yourself as a father?
Yes. I realised that she has all the power in our relationship.
