Not many will be aware of the fact that as a nineteen year old the handsome Punit Malhotra had assisted Karan Johar during the making of KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA. It was right after KANK that Punit took a break and started working on the script of I HATE LUV STORYS.
Once he had completed the work on his superb script he got a lot of offers from well known film producers (once they went through the draft) and also a few near and dear ones, offering to produce the film. But Punit made it clear to one and all that his loyalties lay with Karan Johar and so there was no question of going anywhere else!
With encouragement to direct it himself from the likes of Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Tarun Mansukhani during the making of DOSTANA Punit decided to go for it and the rest as they say is history.
Here's wishing the best to Punit and I HATE LUV STORYS.
