“Delhi Belly” actor Kunaal Roy Kapoor is set to go behind the camera to direct “Pool”, a horror film expected to feature a slew of bikini-clad ladies.
Producer Siddharth Jain said: “Okay, we’re auditioning for a film. But that’s all I can tell you at the moment.”
Further probing revealed Kunaal’s direct involvement in the proceedings.
“Kunaal is directing a horror thriller called ‘Pool’ for Siddharth Jain. It’s like one of those Japanese horror films with lots of girls in swimming clothes screaming blue murder,” said a source.
“Siddharth wants ‘Pool’ to scare audiences away from swimming pools just as Steven Spielberg’s ‘Jaws’ had scared people off the beaches and the oceans,” he added.
Kunaal stepped into showbiz first as a director.
He directed the little-seen Konkona Sensharma-starrer titled “Shall We Tell The President”. And then he took to acting.
Post “Delhi Belly”, he got several film offers but direction remains his first love.
“Pool” is expected to feature 12 new females.
Asked about his tryst with direction, Kunaal said: “I am very excited about this film. I’ve managed to juggle my dates to fit in pre-production and the shooting. But it’s going to be a packed year for me.”
