Family

Kunal Khemu was born to a Kashmiri Pandit family in Hyderabad, to Ravi and Jyoti Khemu. He has a sister, Karishma. He is the grandson of Moti Lal Kemmu, a renowned playwright in Jammu & Kashmir. Through his marriage to Soha Ali Khan, he is related to the illustrious Pataudi-Tagore family. Saif Ali Khan is his brother-in-law while Kareena Kapoor is his sister-in-law.

Career

Kunal started acting when he was just 4 years old, starring in the TV show Gul Gulshan Gulfam in 1987. He made his film debut as a child artist with the 1993 movie Sir. He went on to star in movies like Raja Hindustani, Zakhm, Bhai, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, and Dushman. In the 90s, Khemu was often called the most popular child artist in India.

After taking a break from acting in 1998, Khemu returned to the big screen in 2005 with Kalyug. Though the film was a failure, Kunal was noticed by the audience and he received a number of projects. In 2007 he appeared in three films, each getting a different result. Traffic Signal earned him critical praise but was a flop. Dhol was a commercial success. Superstar failed both critically and commercially. His next 3 movies flopped too until he starred in the comedy movie Golmaal 3, which was a huge success. He next starred in two commercial successes, Blood Money (2012) and Go Goa Gone (2013). However, since 2013, most of the movies he has starred in have done poorly, both with the critics and the audience. Khemu's only taste of success in recent years was Golmaal Again (2017). 

Controversies

Kunal is an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva and has many tattoos of him on his body. However, one such tattoo received criticism due to being on his leg. There were strong rumours that his marriage was in trouble, but Khemu squashed all the rumours.

In 2017, the couple came under criticism when Soha Ali Khan (who is a Muslim) posted a picture with husband wearing saree. However, the couple stood by her choice.

Favourites

Kunal Khemu is a big cricket fan and some of his favourite cricketers are Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and Ricky Ponting. However, he is also a football fan and cheers for Brazil, Argentina as well as Manchester United and Real Madrid. He loves eating rogan josh, sizzlers, crème Brulee and Chinese cuisine. The Matrix is his all-time favourite movie. 

Trivia

Kunal first met Soha on the sets of Dhoondhte Reh Jaoge in 2009 and instantly disliked her. But they soon started getting close. Sharmila Tagore, his mother-in-law, gifted the couple a flat worth INR 9 crore as their wedding gift.
