Kunal Kemmu feels he is underutilised 

In the interview published on an online portal, Kunal Kemmu revealed that after the Golmaal series, filmmakers were under the impression that he can only pull-off comedy characters. Reason for which was that he was reportedly offered roles in multiple comedy films. But, with the release of Malang, the actor hopes the scenarios will change and filmmakers will offer him roles that have a scope of performance. In the interview, the Malang actor expressed his desire to act in performance-oriented roles. He exclaimed that he has more to offer than comedy. Kunal, who made his Bollywood debut with Mohit Suri's Kalyug, managed to impress the audiences with his work in movies like Go Goa Gone, Blood Money, Traffic Signal, among others.
