Actor Kunal Khemu says that although he and his girlfriend, actor Soha Ali Khan, fight like any other regular couple, neither of them is dominating. “We both fight a lot... We both are culprits! Both of us like to talk, debate a lot. All I can say is that we are in a very good place today,” says Kunal.“Nobody dominates in our relationship. I don’t think any relationship can work if one dominates. It has to be an equal relation for it to be successful and happy,” he adds. The actors have been dating for a long time and have been open about their relationship. “We are in a very good place. I am really happy where I am. It is going great. We both respect each other as people and professionals,” says Kunal. The actor would next be seen in Go Goa Gone, a zombie-comedy produced by Saif Ali Khan, Soha’s brother. This is Kunal’s first film with Saif’s production house. When asked why it took so long for him to do a film with Saif, Kunal says, “It is a professional thing. It does not mean that If I am in a relationship with Soha, it automatically makes it mandatory for me to do a film with them. Even Soha has not done a film with Saif’s production house. It is not planned, it just happened.”
Go Goa Gone is Kunal’s second movie with director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK after 99. “Raj called me up saying let’s make a zombie film. So I became a part of their core writing team, came up with a story, I even wrote dialogues for the film. When we were finished with the scripting, I was not sure which character should I play, I left it to the directors to decide. They decided the role for me,” adds Kunal.
The makers are bringing zombies first time on Indian silver screen and say they have kept the storyline very simple. “World over, zombies are really big. But not everyone here would have seen zombie films. So keeping that in mind, we’ve kept the story of the film very simple. It is not necessary for one to know what zombies are, as the characters in the film are also clueless about them,” he says. Releasing today, the film also stars Saif Ali Khan, Vir Das and Puja Gupta. Kunal says he is happy with the response to the promos and hopes the excitement continues till and after the film releases.
