Long before being related to the ‘Pataudi’ family, Kunal Khemu has been a known name in Bollywood. Being born in a family which had good connections with the Indian Film Industry, and the grandson to a writer, Khemu found his passion for acting at a very young age. Interestingly, he had been seen in side roles in famous movies like Raja Hindustani (1996) starring Aamir Khan and Karisma Kapoor, and Zakhm (1998), starring Ajay Devgan and Pooja Bhatt. But, Khemu’s big break was in the year 2005, when he was cast as the lead character ‘Kunal’ in the movie Kalyug (2005).
As the actor turns 35 today (25th May, 2018), here are some of Khemu’s movies that really left an impact–
