ABOUT SAMIR KARNIK
Director | Producer | Writer
Samir Karnik , the well known film director, producer and screenwriter of Hindi 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 like “Heroes” and “Yamla Pagla Deewana” which were directed as well as produced by him. The movies did quite well at the box office and gathered him the desired appreciation. “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 movie, produced under the banner Top Angle Productions is a romantic comedy and is set against the backdrop of Rajasthan at a four-day wedding. Samir Karnic has great expectations from the movie and hopes that it breaks the records of Yamla Pagla Deewana and does even better at the box office.
Though Samir is a maharshtrian, he is very fond of Punjabi food and culture and this very well reflects in his movies. Heroes”, “Yamla Pagla Deewana” and now “Chaar Din Ki Chandni” – this is Samir Karnik’s third film that has Punjab in the backdrop simply because he loves the culture there. He loves the warmth exuded by Punjabis and their fondness for people.
