I, Me, Myself - Kunal Karan Kapoor! (First Part)


“What you see is what you get.” Yes that is what we felt when we met this actor in person.

Kunal Karan Kapoor, who essays the character of Mohan Bhatnagar in Na Bole Tum on Colors, is one of the most sought after actors today on small screen. With his unconventional looks, carefree attitude and brilliant acting skills, he has created a niche for himself and has won the hearts of one and all.

We also asked his fans to pen down a phrase that best describes “Kunal - the Person” and we were amazed at the responses we received at such short notice. We have included few of the best responses in this first part of his interview.

Yash Patel (Fan): “A crystal clear person, but reflects innumerable spectrum of emotion.”
                                            
Rangmunch: One thing you are grateful for in life?

Kunal: Hmmm….My dog! Infact there are lots of things am grateful for but right now, it’s ‘NBTNMKK’

Rangmunch: One thing that is missing in your life at the moment?

Kunal: (pauses a while) A big ass TV!

Rangmunch: How big?

Kunal: (Laughs out loud) Like a really big TV! But then I don’t have time to see TV…one thing really missing in my life right now is my dog. I really miss him. He is in a dog boarding because he is old, someone needs to be around him to take care of him, and I cannot take care of him right now at this stage. I wish I could get him on the sets but he has become a little violent so its not possible. I really miss him.

Rangmunch: What according to you is your greatest asset?

Kunal: Hmm..hmmm. I haven’t really thought about it. What would you say is my greatest asset? (He starts laughing as he throws the question back at us)
(After giving it a lot of thought) I am very impulsive. It’s really not an asset but inadvertently I end up doing what I really want to do.

Rangmunch: What do you need to change about yourself?

Kunal: (Pat comes the reply) I need to quit smoking.

Rangmunch: And how many times have you tried?

Kunal: Never!

Rangmunch: They say once a smoker always a smoker.

Kunal: (Smiles) I don’t know about that. I heard once an actor always an actor.

Roshni Pandey (Fan): “A person with a sharp and pointed nose which defines him as a straight forward person in his career, life and relationships. From my point of view this is more than enough to describe Kunal as a person.”

Rangmunch: Do you judge others?

Kunal: Ahhhhh!!! (Starts laughing) Yeeeeee No! (bursts out laughing)

Rangmunch: And you are lying!

Kunal: (Smiles) Ofcourse I am. Aahmm. Yes, but I tell myself don’t! Because it is not nice, someone would be judging me. Honestly, I end up making a fool of myself at least 10 times a day and I think 9 times has been during this interview.

Rangmunch: Are you possessive by nature?

Kunal: Very possessive about my books, DVD’s, my X Box games and my laptop.

Rangmunch: You are a gadget freak! You are possessive about all the non-living things.

Kunal: (Smiles sheepishly) Give me a break, I live alone. I don’t have anyone to be possessive about.

Rangmunch: One person you would want to say sorry to?

Kunal: I can’t remember anyone right now. I would like to say sorry to my dad, because I don’t talk to him often.

Rangmunch: Who is your greatest critic?

Kunal: Myself. My friends don’t watch the episode with me because am too critical and they just walk out telling me to watch it by myself.

Rangmunch: Your first crush?

Kunal: (without missing a beat) Second Standard, my class monitor!

Rangmunch: Do you remember her name?

Kunal: (Grins) I do but I won’t take her name.

(As told to Swati Ghosh & Niharika Vidya Sagar)

The interview is not over yet. Picture abhi baki hai mere dost!!! Do come back to read the second half of this interview which we will put up soon.

  14. Thank you for a wonderful interview!! waiting for the next part..Kunal seems to be very straight forward person and honest. He definitely has streaks of Mohan in him. An amazing actor, but at the same time very humble too.
    Kunal, thanks for making the character Mohan so close to our hearts..it is just because of your great talent! and may you reach to greater heights of success in your life!!
    and please quit smoking :)

  15. Thanks Rangmunch for such a wonderful interview!

    Kunal, loved all your answers...such honesty is really rare, you know! Aww at hearing about your first crush ;) Very cutee! Glad to know about you being a gadget freak and possessive about them...same as me! :D

    Thanks a ton for playing Mohan so phenomenally! I bet no one on this earth could play it with so much ease and perfection like you do! You totally live the character! Believe me, Mohan Bhatnagar is truly very close to my heart! I consider him as a guy next door or my best fictional pal...thanks to you for making the character real!

    Only wanna say.. Stay 'Random' as you always are and be proud of it! Never change for anyone, always keep the smile on your face and if possible, quit smoking...i know its not easy but SUNNA...try karne mein kya buraai hai :D Always remember that no matter what happens, we love you and Mohan and will forever do! :D

  16. Oh doesn't he make you grin like a Bobcat! For me Kunal's greatest asset - given first impressions that are lingering on - is spontaneity. Not just "impulse" in action, which he duly confesses, but just the spontaneity of response/reflex - it makes him such an agreeable and easy to connect with person, through mere interviews!

    Kunal, you far underrate yourself as an actor (wrt IF interview). Subjectively with reference to Mohan, you've struck gold - and us, a diamond in you! Mohan forms the epicenter of the entertainment blast that is NBT - and you are primarily to credit for bringing this character to life!

    ps: Only this morning I saw a couple shots of you with Mr. Oliver Kapoor. Can I please, please steal him away for a holiday? He looks ADORABLE! My random bias - he reminds me starkly of the way I pictured Timothy to be all those years ago in elementary school, when living off re-re-re-reading Famous Fives was the highlight of my day. It made me throw a tantrum to get my first ever dog, te he!
    Anyway - so if dear Olly doesn't mind some perpetual snow on the sidewalks, I solemnly promise to be the best dog-sitter ever! Can already hear Nemo (my own dog) woof-ing his approval to the idea of company! =D

    first of all, a huge thanx to Swati & Niharika for bringing us this amazing interview, do post the second part soon !!

    gosh i'm going to treasure this interview forever. the more i see mohan bhatnagar on screen and read kunal's interviews on Rangmunch & India-Forums, the more i wonder, how come this guy be so similar to me yaar ?? waise the biggest thing to be noticed here, kunal is so honest, frank and straight-forward in his replies, no diplomatic or politically correct answers at all !! love you for this kunal, hope you reduce your daily amount of ciggie smoking ( i wont say quit coz i know it's not possible for regular smokers to quit entirely ) and keep entertaining us as mohan .

    Love you & take care.

  21. I'm seriously loving his character in the show. I never thought that I'll be so crazy about any other character after Cpt. Rajveer & Maan's character. His acting is very natural. Thanks RM for giving us such a nice interview. I wish luck for his future & request him to quit smoking ... at least he should try.

  30. I relish watching'Mohan Bhatnagar played by you, Kunal. I don't get time to watch it too often coz it features late at night. Many best wishes to you. You have become one of my favorite actors, coz you appear real on screen. Cheers! Wish you all the best. I don't watch serials often but I think you in NBTNMKH and Ram and Priya in BALH are awesome and a treat to watch! aristos! :)...keep up the good work, Kunal Karan Kapoor.
