I was a very active child and attended many classes, but my favorite one was that of drama. I was a little child back then and I thought it was an easy profession. I realized later that it’s very hard to play different roles. I would love to work with a good director on a good movie. What kind of a character would I love to play? The one who fights, who loves, who is in pain…” - Kakha Kintsurashvili says in one of the interviews.

He and his wife have one child.

“If I ever find myself in the situation my
character Maxime is now, I will act the way I think it is best for me. If someone ever tries to impose his views on me like that, I think I will do some unbelievable things.

I believe that the reason I have been successful is that I always try to do things seriously.
