Kunal Kapoor has jalebi-phobia!

Published: Oct 30, 2012, 09:54 IST | Shakti Shetty |

The actor has developed a phobia of jalebis thanks to his role in his film 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana'

Chances are that anybody with a sweet tooth would love to gorge on jalebis. Unless you are Kunal Kapoor! The actor who otherwise loves to indulge in sweets has developed an aversion towards this juicy preparation. And this has something to do with overeating a whole lot of them during a specific scene in his forthcoming film.

According to a well-placed source, the scene required him to gobble down jalebis but the seemingly pleasant shooting schedule slowly turned into a nightmare. “Due to some reason or the other, the shots weren’t up-to-mark. As the result, they took so many retakes that Kunal had more than three-dozen jalebis back-to-back! Although it’s quite obvious that he love sweets, it was beyond healthy means. He even declared that he won’t be having jalebis ever again,” adds the source.

Kunal confirms the news but quips that eating them was part of his job. “The crazy thing about a food film is the amount of food you end up eating, take after take. In my case, I along with my co-star Rajesh Sharma wiped out about 40 jalebis. I can safely say that I’ve developed a disorder now. I call it jalebi-phobia! I don’t even want to look at a jalebi for at least a year to get over its taste,” Kunal laughs.
