Kunal Kapoor, who recently made a very good impression in his roles in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag as well as Aaja Nachle, thinks that choosing what you are going to represent in advertisements is very important. “For me, choosing the ads that jell with my temperament, taste and morality is as important as choosing the right films.”

The actor added, “If you’re particular about the movies you do, you extend the same attitude to ads. My first ad for a brand of shirts was followed by a cola ad. In a new shirt ad, for which I just shot, I go into normal places like in a bus, etc. I guess I’m that regular kind of guy. But I become very emotionally attached to the brand that I endorse. I’ve to believe in what I endorse. Again it’s the same as a movie where we become one big family as long as we shoot.”

About choosing roles in films he says, “I look at a character and find some quality that I love. My character Aslam in Rang De…. was sincere. Sabby in Hattrick was juvenile. I found him funny. Others didn’t. In Laaga Chunari Mein Daag I was very laidback. I’ve to feel for the film and my character.”

He had a tremendous time shooting for Aaja Nachle and revealed that, “At the last count we had 32 wrap-up parties. We’ve celebrated any and everything we could think of. Ranbir Shorey and Vinay Pathak had us in splits. Since they’re the best friends off screen they’re a laugh riot on the sets. What a pair they make!”

Working with Madhuri was a dream come true and he said, “I’ve worked with a lot of actors whose fans I am. But Madhuri was extra-special. I told her I’ve probably seen Hum Aapke Hain Koun as many times as M.F. Husain. It took me a while to realize she was a normal human being. For a while I’d be shocked when she would get sweaty while working. How can Madhuri Dixit feel the heat? She’s too normal.”
