Kunal, who will now be seen in Kaalakaandi, reveals that there are no talks of a sequel to Delhi Belly just yet.

Kunal and Aditya Roy Kapur.

Kunal Roy Kapur was once a hefty guy, but the actor has worked hard to achieve a leaner look. In fact, the actor reveals that he had been offered a few romantic roles, now that he has shed some weight. However, the actor has some competition within the family, in the form of brother Aditya Roy Kapur. With movies like Aashiqui and Fitoor, Aditya has cemented his place as a hearthrob. And Kunal believes he will never be accepted as a romantic hero like Aditya has.

“It’s a zone I don’t think I can ever be in,” explains Kunal. “I don’t think I can be that kind of romantic hero like in Aashiqui, OK Jaanu, or anything of the sort. I don’t think I can be the young and hot actor. I’m out of that zone.”

Talking about his brother, Kunal adds, “I admire how he has grown as an actor, right from Action Replayy. I have seen him grow with every performance. I just see an evolution of the guy improving.”

Kunal, who will now be seen in Kaalakaandi, reveals that there are no talks of a sequel to Delhi Belly just yet. He says, “I have a romantic film coming up, but it’s a rom-com, so it was convenient. People like seeing interesting characters.”
