Welcome to LQ saurabh4dudes!

you gotta be more specific?

you have to install kubuntu inside mint?
or you gotta install KDE desktop into mint?

or what?

also, you mean inside a windows nfts partition?

or dual-boot?

what are your machine specs?

I know nothing about that option of mint and kubuntu but they surely just run a linux os inside a virtual machine, like virtualbox or vmware.

My advice is to do it yourself. Install VirtualBox for Windows (or whatever vm you prefer), then install as many different Linux versions as you want inside that VM. That way you will have full control and you will be able to install as many different Linux OSes as you want, and use then inside Windows.
