Samir Karnik is a renowned film director, producer and screenwriter of Hindi movies who did his directorial debut in 2004 with the movie “Kyun! Ho Gaya Na...” The movie was a Bollywood romance film starring Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi in the main lead.
Later he came up with movies “Heroes” and “Yamla Pagla Deewana”as a director as well as producer. The movies did quite well at the box office and gathered great appreciation for his hardwork.“Yamla Pagla Deewana” marked the second time that the Deol family had been cast together after their last sports hit, Apne in 2007. The film with the perfect dose of action, drama and comedy, combined with a fine story received mostly positive reviews from critics.
After his rip-roaring Yamla Pagla Deewana, Samir Karnik is ready with his next directorial venture, Chaar Din Ki Chandni. The film, starring Tusshar Kapoor and Kulraj Randhawa, is set to release on Lohri next year. The film revolves around a Rajput family and Punjabi family, who are caught in a situation which creates comedy of errors. The movie also stars Anupam Kher, Om Puri, Johnny Lever, Mukul Dev, Anita Raj, Sushant Singh and Chandrachur Singh.
Further, the title track of the 1989 release “Chandni” is another high point of the film, says Samir.“The idea of the song “O meri Chandni” came from the fact that the girl’s name in the movie is chandni”? It brings a sense of recall and fits the situation,” says the producer-director.
Dus 2, the sequel of the movie global crime thriller Dus is also to be directed by Samir Karnik. Its shooting is expected to begin at the year end with most of the original cast returning for an enthusiastic encore. Only Shilpa Shetty would be replaced by Deepika Padukone, as the role requires a tall athletic actress who can do kick ass stunts. Samir Karnik is expected to finalize Dus 2 after the release of his upcoming movie “Chaar Din Ki Chandni”.
