Actor Kunal Kapoor gets bruised in Thailand

Actor Kunal Kapoor has recently created a splash on social media and Bollywood. But unfortunately for the actor it was not for any new film.  On 6th July Kunal posted a selfie on Twitter in which he is seen with a black eye.  Then the actor revealed that he has got it on his trip of Thailand. Kunal posted, “This is what I came back from Thailand with. A broken tooth and a busted eye, courtesy Muay Thai!! Good fun though!!”  The 36 year old actor tried his hand at the local combat sport ‘Muay Thai.’

‘Muay Thai’ is based on the muay martial arts of Thailand. This combat style consists of stand-up hard striking mixed with different clinching techniques. Few days ago, on June 25th Kunal had posted a photo on his Twitter account where he is watching a fight held in Bangkok from the crowd. Looks like Kunal Kapoor was not satisfied till he got a taste of the real thing and decided to get in the ring. However, after a black eye and broken tooth, it is doubtful that he will be as enthusiastic as before. But Kunal certainly revealed his sporting nature by sharing it with fans on Twitter.

Kunal Kapoor was also in the news few months ago when he got engaged to his girlfriend of two years, Naina Bachchan. On that occasion Kunal had said, "Naina and I are together, and very happy, and we intend to keep it that way."  Naina is the niece of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan. Her parents are Amitabh’s brother Ajitabh and Ramola Bachchan. She is an investment banker and used to work in Delhi. Post engagement she has shifted in Mumbai. News also circulated that the couple will tie the knot this year and the wedding date has also been fixed.

But later Kunal clarified that the details about the wedding are not fixed yet. Kunal had commented “It is not official. When we are ready, we will definitely talk about it." Kunal is also involved with social causes these days. He recently helped to raise Rs. 45 lakhs through a crowd-funding portal called Ketto that supports causes like rehabilitating sex-workers’ children. According to Kunal, “A lot of people want to give back to society these days and the one of best ways to do it is through technology." 

The actor has recently completed work on the film ‘Kaun Hai Kitne Paani Mein’ by Nila Madhab Panda. He is also part of an Anurag Kashyap film where he plays an Indian superhero.
