I had to bulk up for the role and put on 11 kilos. It was uplifting to observe how the officers at the station were vigilant through the night, away from their families, always on their toes. It made me realise the sacrifices the police force makes for which we don’t thank them enough. I was lucky enough to go on a night patrolling trip with them. I am so grateful for the experience.”

- In 2014, soon after completing his undergraduate degree, Kunj shifted to Mumbai to pursue a career in acting. In 2016, he signed a two-year contract with a theatre; however, later he signed a show following which he decided to break the contract. In an interview, Kunj talked about this and said,
I moved to Bombay in 2014. And in 2016, I had landed a two year theatrical contract which I let go for a show I was already shooting. The story of that show was great and I had a lot of hope when the producer shelled the show after 6 episodes. Everything came crashing down. It’s set in stone, living in Mumbai is an expensive lifestyle even for a moderate living and basic survival. It was difficult for a few months because money is essential and I wasn’t able to land something concrete. Nonetheless, I got back to auditioning properly.”
