Actor Kunal Kapoor has started filming his forthcoming period film Raagdesh, a project which he says is so powerful it reminded him of his blockbuster Rang De Basanti.
Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the film is based on the Red Fort trials of 1945.
“Tigmanshu is an amazing director. I think it is one of the most powerful scripts I’ve read after Rang De Basanti. It is the fastest I’ve said yes to a film. I read the script and called in five seconds, hoping he doesn’t change his mind,” Kunal told reporters here.
The actor said it has been an amazing year for him so far, playing characters in different era, making him feel he is “time travelling”. “I have been time travelling this year. I started of as a 16th century warrior (in Veeram), then I was a 40s soldier in Raagdesh and a millennial in Dear Zindagi. It has been quite a travel,” he said.
The 39-year-old actor walked the ramp at the Van Heusen GQ Fashion Nights, looking dapper in a blazer.
Kunal said he always enjoyed walking the ramp and when it comes to style, his icon is Sanjay Dutt.
