Bhatts are continuing to have faith in newcomers and one such actor who is hoping to benefit from their stand is Kunal Khemu. After being launched by them as a leading man in KALYUG, he would now see a re-launch of sorts with BLOOD MONEY.
Says an industry insider, ''Bhatts' confidence in Kunal stems from the fact that when it comes to acting skills, not many have doubted his abilities. In fact what's more surprising is the fact that quite a few of his films have earned money at the box office, be it GOLMAAL 3, 99, DHOL, TRAFFIC SIGNAL or KALYUG with the exceptions being DHOONDTE REH JAOGE, JAI VEERU and SUPERSTAR.

Another reason why Kunal is finding favour in Bhatts is his earlier track record during his growing up years. After all, as a child artist Kunal had worked in number of films coming from the house of Bhatts, namely SIR, NAARAAZ, TAMANNA, DUSHMAN, ANGAARAY and ZAKHM. Now more than half a decade after KALYUG (2005), they are giving him a second chance with BLOOD MONEY.
''May be as a lead actor, his selection of films wasn't all that great. However all of that will change with BLOOD MONEY where he would get an opportunity to play to his strengths,' says Mukesh Bhatt, 'BLOOD MONEY is a love story with a thrilling background and narrates the aspirations of those youngsters who feel that if they work abroad, their life would be set. At Vishesh Films we know whom to bet our money on and on what sort of project. Kunal is just the right face for BLOOD MONEY.''
With Amrita Puri as the leading lady, BLOOD MONEY releases all over on 30th March.
