Mumbai: Actor Kunaal Roy Kapur says that tinsel town talks dominate all family sittings and there is no escape from it in house as well, with his brothers Aditya, Siddharth Roy Kapur and sister-in-law Vidya Balan all working in Bollywood.
Siddharth is managing director, Studios, Disney UTV, and recently got married to actress Vidya Balan, while Kunaal's younger brother Aditya will be seen in 'Aashiqui 2'.
"Our family has become filmy. There was no plan to be like this. My elder brother is in corporate world, younger one was VJ and I was doing acting on stage and photography. Then Vidya came along, she is part of our family now. We have found way to be in the industry," Kunaal said in an interview here.
"Whenever we sit down for lunch it is filmy conversation. It is difficult not to talk about films. It is obvious for us to talk about movies," he added.
Kunaal made his acting debut on big screen with Aamir Khan's home production 'Delhi Belly', while Aditya has done supporting roles in films like 'Action Replayy' and 'Guzaarish' but his first lead role movie will be 'Aashiqui 2'.
When asked if he ever takes advice from anyone in family, Kunaal says, "We do discuss about work. Like me and Aditya discuss we have been offered this film and should we take it or not. But finally it is our decision and we don't blame anyone. I believe you yourself are responsible for the choices you make."
Kunaal's is all praise for his sister-in-law Vidya. "I think she is a very good human being and a great actress. The most special thing about Vidya is her perspective towards life... The importance she gives to family. She still values
lot of small things despite having achieved so much fame," he said.
The 'Kapur' family is back in action with Kunaal looking forward to the release of Rohan Sippy's directorial venture 'Nautanki Saala' on April 12. It is a comedy film also starring Ayushmann Khurrana. Aditya's romantic film 'Aashiqui
2' is slated for release on May 10.
Vidya will be seen in 'Ghanchakkar' opposite Emraan Hashmi. Produced by Siddharth, the film releases on June 28.
