Kunal mostly acted in his father's films. He made his debut with the 1972 english-language film Siddhartha in which he played the son of the title character played by his father. He then appeared in Shyam Benegal's critically acclaimed 1978 film Junoon which also featured his parents and both siblings. In 1981 he appeared in his first mainstream Bollywood film titled Ahista Ahista opposite Padmini Kolhapure. The film was a box office hit but it failed to launch his career. In 1982 he once again featured alongside his father in the much acclaimed Vijeta. After that he appeared in the controversial art film Utsav (1984), Sajan Tara Sambharna and Trikaal (1985).

In 1987, Kunal set up his own company, Adfilm-Valas, and started producing and directing television commercials. One of their memorable creations was the "Dream Lover" series for Bombay Dyeing, starring his brother, Karan. Since then, he has directed more than 800 television commercials and is considered one of the better adfilm directors in India. He is particularly known for his large scale formats, action, glamour and humour. Of late, most of the successful car commercials in India have been produced and directed by Kunal.

Adfilm-Valas has also line-produced for many international feature films and adfilms shot in India. Notably, the credit sequence of the film City of Joy, and the French films Le Cactus (2005) and Fire in Paradise.
