Kunal Khemu turns action hero for Mahadkar`s next
Mumbai: Actor Kunal Khemu, who has pulled off serious as well as comedy roles, will now be seen in a hardcore action movie.
After working with Kunal in his directorial debut "Blood Money", Vishal Mahadkar has roped in the actor for his next untitled film.
"I am doing a hardcore action thriller with Kunal Khemu. I always wanted to do an action film. Something I really enjoy watching, this is completely my space. Somewhere it is Kunal`s space as well I think we are going to make a kick ass film as a team," Mahadkar told IANS.
Releasing March 30, "Blood Money" has been produced by Vishesh Films and Mahadkar`s next ios also coming from the same banner.
"No discussion on the title as of now. The script is being written and when the script is ready we can decide whether to give it a title that has a franchise or not. But, as off now it`s not a sequel. I like to cast only when my script is written. It`s too early to talk about other characters," said Mahadkar.
The director promises to show some street brawls in the film.
"I just enjoy action films. You will see lot of fights, lot of street brawls but not like any explosions and that kind of action. I have little bit of action in `Blood Money` as well. That will be a fun space for me to explore," said the director.
Mahadkar believes Kunal is fit and need not work on his body.
"He is already super fit. Kunal agreed on the principle that character is going to be written keeping him in mind. We will be pushing him on the sets to run around and do all the crazy things to pull off a great action film," said the director.
