KUNAAL ROY KAPUR

Yet another debutant director is ready to join the bandwagon. We are talking about Kunaal Roy Kapur, a young man, who has held the megaphone for THE PRESIDENT IS COMING, an English language film which is a Rohan Sippy production. Incidentally, Kunaal has earlier directed the play by the same name which has now been adapted for a full length feature film.

Was beginning with an offbeat subject always on the anvil?

"Not really, it wasn't as if I consciously wanted to begin my Bollywood foray as a director with an offbeat subject. It just happened by chance", says Kunaal, "I was overjoyed though because I had spent good time with the script during my stunt as the director of the play. Since I did eventually want to try my hand at direction in the film world too, THE PRESIDENT IS COMING seemed just apt. Luckily the project came my way even as I was enjoying my stunt as a professional photographer."

How did the idea project happen?

"I was quite content with the play and was taking it across the country. It was entirely an idea of Rohan (Sippy) and writer Anuvab (Pal) to make it into a movie. They got chatting and wanted to do a project and thought of adapting THE PRESIDENT IS COMING. They believed it would make a good film and this is when we decided to have a reading for Rohan with all the actors. He thoroughly enjoyed it and gave a go–ahead there and then", reveals Kunaal.

He admits though that it was cakewalk directing the film. "We have retained most of the actors from the play and since each of the characters was quite well etched with a strong script to boast, we didn't really have to work too hard."
