I have a wife and a two-year-old son

Can a child be any cuter? A perfect example of 'like father like son.'

Even though Kunal says he's not with his family for long as he has to travel for his work, he does pretty amazing things for his family. Like the time when judges of MasterChef India were invited to another Indian show Naach Baaliye where he confessed he couldn't dance at all, but still took part in the show. 

How does that count? 

Hear what Kunal had to say and you'll see why: 

My wife Ekta Kapoor loves dancing and is extremely good at it. But when it comes to me, I find it externally challenging to even do one step in sync. Looking at the way the couples on the show, who have been non-dancers, have progressed, only for the sake of their wife, I am extremely touched.

That is indeed a lovely gesture!
