Kunal Kohli

Kunal Kohli is a film critic turned director.

He got prominence with music videos like 'Mera Long Gawacha' and 'Chui Mui See Tum Lagti Ho'. He also was the host of a film based programme called Chalo Cinema which primarily reviewed Hindi films.

His directorial debut was Mujhse Shadi Karogi (starring Hrithik Roshan, Rani Mukherji and Kareena Kapoor). It was produced by Yash Raj Films. This movie, although inspired from the hollywood flick "The Truth About Cats and Dogs" (starring Ben Chaplin, Uma Thurman and Jeanne Garofalo). However, it didn't do well at the box office. However, full marks to Kunal for trying to adapt the movie to suit the taste of Indian audiences.

Kunal's second movie was Hum Tum (starring Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherji). This was also produced by Yash Raj Films. This time Kunal hits bulls eye and this movie was a big hit. Even this was inspired from the hollywood flick "When Harry Met Sally" (starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal). However, once again he adapted this very well to suit Indian audiences' taste. This time he was rewarded.

Kunal Kohli's third instalment Fanaa (starring Aamir Khan and Kajol) is hitting the screens this coming Friday i.e., May 26, 2006. Once again, this film is being produced by Yash Raj Films. I am totally looking forward to watch this film.
