The special bonding between Samir Karnik, Vatsal Seth

Mumbai: Director Samir Karnik was sad bad when he couldn`t create any role for Vatsal Seth in "Yamla Pagla Deewana", who has been a part of his earlier film. But he was relieved when the trailer of latter`s long pending movie "Hostel" was attched to his comedy.

"Vatsal is not a big star yet. But he`s my lucky mascot. I`ve cast him in all my films so far. When I could find no role for him in `Yamla Pagla Deewana`, I was heartbroken. I felt something to be amiss. I thought I`d have to live with that regret. But something strange happened," said Karnik who worked with Vatsal in "Nanhe Jaisalmer"and "Heroes".

"When I heard the trailer of Vatsal`s film was being attached to `Yamla Pagla Deewana`, I felt it was almost fate`s intervention. Think about it. `Hostel` is a film that could`ve come any time. But it came around and was fixed for a time when its trailer could be attached to my film. So finally, there is Vatsal in `Yamla Pagla Deewana` in an indirect way. I think the two of us have a karmic connection or shall I say, Karnik connection?"

Vatsal, who started his film career with "Taarzan: The Wonder Car", is still struggling to find his bearings. Now Karnik has decided to cast Vatsal as a sardarji in the sequel to "Yamla Pagla Deewana".

"I owe him that," said Karnik.
