His film lineup boasts of top class comedy, but actor Kunaal Roy Kapur says this was not a choice but something that just kept happening.

“Comedy has been chasing me , but it isn’t the only thing I am interested in. I am interested in drama, thrillers, horror and in all kinds of genres. However, comedy is something I am associated with ,” says Kapur, who has been part of films such as Delhi Belly(2011), Nautanki Saala(2013), Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013) and Action Jackson(2014).

Making people laugh is no child’s play but Kapur has managed to do it anyway. But he says he does not follow method acting much. “I don’t think my process follows a method. Method is very much like becoming that character. I use some of the techniques sometimes but usually it is what comes out of a discussion and I don’t take my character back home with me,” he says.

He’s got his share of fan following, but that’s never been a motivation for him. “I didn’t get into acting for that reason. I like acting and stardom is a wonderful by-product and a cherry on top but it was not the main dish,” says the actor, who was recently seen in Azhar.

Kapur, who has worked in television series and satirical documentaries, is very clear about what his choice of profession would have been had acting not happened to him. “I would have been a photographer because I used to click pictures professionally. I wouldn’t have been a professional actor then,” he says.
