Mumbai: Veteran actor Rati Agnihotri`s son Tanuj Virwani, who is debuting with `Luv U Soniyo`, wanted his mother to play his reel mom in the film, as he considers her as lucky charm.

The film, directed by Joe Rajan and distributed by Viacom 18 Media Pvt Ltd will see the newcomer with former beauty queen Neha Hinge.

"When I signed the film, my mom did not have any idea about it. Later when Joe and I were discussing about who should play the mother`s role we both took mom`s name (Rati Agnihotri). My mom is my lucky charm and I am happy she is a part of my first Bollywood film," Tanuj said in a statement here.

The film is all set to hit the screens on July 26.
