Kunal Kemmu announces directorial debut with 'Madgaon Express'
It was reported in January 2022 that actor Kunal Kemmu is gearing up to slide into a new avatar and will be donning the directorial hat for a comedy film backed by Excel Entertainment. On the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi on Wednesday, Kemmu has now confirmed the news and announced the title of his directorial debut: Madgaon Express. The release date is under wraps.
- Kemmu kickstarted his career as a child artist and shot to fame through films such as Raja Hindustani, Zakhm, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, and Bhai, among others.
- In his career's second phase, he established his prowess through projects such as Kalyug, Go Goa Gone, and web series Abhay.
- Thus, it will be interesting to see what flavor he now brings to Madgaon Express!
Kemmu, who has also written Madgaon Express, took to social media to share the exciting news with his followers. He evoked Lord Ganesha and wrote, "It all started with a thought in my head, which grew into a dream which flowed out through my fingers into words on my laptop, and now it's becoming a reality on its way to the silver screen."
The Golmaal 3 actor also extended his gratitude to Excel Entertainment's Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar, and Rucha Pathak. Kemmu thanked them for "believing in [his] script and [his] vision and partnering with [him] on this exciting journey in the world of cinema." Interestingly, Kemmu had previously written dialogues for the zombie horror-comedy Go Goa Gone, so writing isn't an uncharted territory for him.
