We wonder had director Luv Ranjan expected that his film 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2' would be appreciated so much by the young India? Well, it is certainly good news for the filmmaker and the entire cast and crew of the movie, as it has already crossed a whopping Rs 50 crore mark in India.
Luv Ranjan's first film, Pyaar Ka Punchnama, was a surprise commercial hit. Four years on, the director is back with a sequel built around a fresh set of wide-eyed characters navigating the complexities of love.
He might have tickled the funny bone of the audience with his debut directorial "Pyaar Ka Punchnama" in 2011 and is now ready with its second part, but filmmaker Luv Ranjan believes comedy is not his strength, and that he can only "manage" slice-of-life kind of humour.
The story of the unspoken baggage of dating a girl, and how rattled the boyfriend gets while trying to fit in and fix things up, struck the right chord with the audiences in 2011 hit 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama'. Directed by Luv Ranjan, the youth centric film became an instant and a runaway success.
Director Luv Ranjan, whose rom-com `Pyaar Ka Punchnama` (PKP) has proved quite a success, says he is rewriting a portion of his next film `Saathi` because it is similar to Raj Kumar Hirani`s blockbuster `3 Idiots`.
