Phir Se Jennifer Winget Kunal Kohli

Unlike other filmmaker-turned-actors like Farhan Akhtar, Karan Johar, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Anurag Kashyap, Kunal Kohli is making a serious acting debut this year with his upcoming flick ‘Phir Se’ where he will not only romance another debutant Jennifer Winget but will also play the main lead in the movie.

According to IANS, since Kohli plays the lead role, he left no stone unturned to look his best on screen and considering that the filmmaker-turned-actor hit the gym to attain a lean look. Kohli��approximately lost 18 kilos and followed a strict workout pattern and a healthy diet.

Though Kohli has hosted several shows on television before, this is the first time he will be seen doing a full-fledged role in a movie. The first look and film’s trailer has received an overwhelming response from industry veterans and trade experts.

Kohli had always nurtured the dream of becoming an actor and seeing himself on the big screen. He’s quite serious about his acting career and would like to play challenging roles on screen.

This trait of him makes him stand apart from other filmmakers who turned actors in the later years of their Bollywood careers. ‘Phir Se’ is directed by Kohli and Ajay Bhuyan. The film is scheduled to release on 8th May and also sees the debut of Jennifer Winger who is making a transition from small screen to Indian cinema.
