Kunal says, “I can pick up my bag, board a flight and just land at any place unplanned. I remember I had landed at Ladakh completely unplanned during the month of November, when it was freezing cold and I was stranded at one place. And then from nowhere a man emerged and remembered me from my TV show Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha and helped me out. It was a heart-warming experience. I have visited many countries and love to click pictures. After acting, I love to be behind the camera. I feel travel liberates you and I prefer solitude than going with a bunch of people.”
Kunal reveals that he enjoyed pursuing his hobby even more during the last two years of the pandemic. He says, “Photography is a hobby that I discovered most during the last two years. I can’t travel much now because it is not so easy to travel during the pandemic. But when I used to travel, discovering a new city and meeting new people on the roads was my biggest source of happiness. I remember people hosting me for lunch and dinners at their homes. I enjoy solo travelling and even when I’ve felt lonely, I met people who made me feel good. I have made friends in so many countries. My ideal vacation is an unplanned vacation. I have lost count of the number of countries I have travelled tp in the past few years. The longest trip, I remember, lasted for 55 days. I travelled to three continents and lived in 17 hotels – Europe, South East Asia and Middle East.”
Kunal adds, “I feel it is important to be happy with whatever you do, whether it is travelling solo or with a bunch of people. And when I am not working, I prefer to travel or click pictures. It makes me happy.”
On the professional front, Kunal will be seen playing the role of a cadet in the upcoming TV show Ziddi Dil.
