Kunal Kapoor is not interested in "niche cinema" unless it is "exciting" because as an actor he wants to reach out to as many people as possible.

"I only understand there is good film and bad film. I don't know what art and commercial films are. As far as I am concerned, if I am going to spend so much time on a film, then I want to reach out to as many people as possible. I don't want to be part of niche films unless it's damn exciting," Kunal, who started his career with M.F. Hussain's off beat directorial venture "Meenaxi: Tale of 3 Cities" in 2004, told IANS.

"For me, it's important to do commercial films, but commercial films should have the sensibility of independent cinema. My favourite films are 'Munnabhai M.B.B.S', '3 Idiots', 'Chak De! India' and 'Rang De Basanti'. They are all commercial films but they have a sensibility to them," he added.

In the last eight years, the actor has featured in a mix of commercial and non-commercial movies, including "Rang De Basanti", "Aaja Nachle", "Welcome To Sajjanpur" and "Lamhaa".

He is so particular about his films that the 34-year-old chose to sit at home rather than doing movies he doesn't believe in.

"I am very clear about the films I want to do and I don't want to do. Sitting at home for a long time can be frustrating because everyone else is working. As an actor, you want to work and be part of shooting. So it is slightly frustrating, but it's the choice that I made. I have developed a choice... I will not do films that I don't believe in," he said.

He recently featured in light-hearted romantic comedy "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana" that grossed Rs.7.4 crore in five days of its release. Directed by Sameer Sharma and produced by Anurag Kashyap, the film received favourable reviews and positive response at the box office.
