Kunal Sharma in The Cheetah Girls One World!

You can get a sneak peek at IMTA alum Kunal Sharma's latest project tonight on Disney! It's the world's first look at the new Cheetah Girls movie, The Cheetah Girls 3 : One World. Kunal plays Amar in the telefilm that was shot on location in India. It's the first Disney Channel movie ever filmed in India! The Disney Channel's "Made in India" event airs tonight at 8/7c!

Kunal Sharma has been very busy. He was recently in Florida competing in the Disney Channel Games with TWO fellow IMTA alumni: Moises Arias (who was a fellow yellow team mate!) and Alyson Stoner. Kunal just finished filming Legally Blondes, the third installment in the Legally Blonde movies. Kunal has guest-starred on many popular TV shows such Phil of the Future, The Office, Veronica Mars, Crossing Jordan and Hannah Montana. He also stars in the independent film, The Adventures of Food Boy with another IMTA alum, Brittany Curran! Here's an excerpt from an interview where he mentions his IMTA experience:

Hi Kunal. It’s great to see you again, and thanks for spending some time with us today. To start, can you tell us how you got into acting?
"Though I always had an interest in the performing arts, I began to actively pursue it after participating in IMTA. This is a nationwide talent competition held in Los Angeles where kids are able to showcase their acting prowess as well as get a chance to meet people from the industry. Thereafter, I began to take some acting classes in LA and this solidified my passion."

Please visit the official The Adventures of Food Boy blog to read the entire interview and to read more about this promising film.

Kunal competed at IMTA Los Angeles in 2004, when he was sixteen years old. Displaying his acting talents in IMTA competitions such as monologues, sitcoms and cold read, Kunal was spotted by agents and managers where he received offers of representation and scholarships to film courses at leading film schools. Kunal is repped by Larry Corsa of The Corsa Agency.
