Ever since the romantic comedy I HATE LUV STORYS hit the silver screen, Samir Soni who plays the lovable director Vir Kapoor in the film has been receiving constant calls of appreciation.
Having learnt theater under guru Barry John, Samir Soni steps into the shoes of an eccentric film director in the film I HATE LUV STORYS with great ease.
The actor who plays a small but pivotal role in the film has been receiving rave reviews and has left a favorable impression on the audiences and critics alike.
Says a reviewer from a leading tabloid, 'In IHLS Samir Soni is lovable as the eccentric director - he's the show-stealer every time he's on screen'
In spite of playing a supporting character in the film, Samir Soni- the effortless actor is overwhelmed at the response his character has generated.
Adds one of the acclaimed critics, 'Samir Soni's character reminds you of a certain hi-profile director and he plays the part extremely well.'
Not leaving his runaway hit of a play behind, Samir Soni also plays a bisexual character in 'Anything But Love' a play that juggles around with only two characters- Seema (Mandira Bedi) and Anish (Sameer Soni) and their trouble to face up with each others drawbacks.
Says a trade analyst, 'Samir Soni is a very bankable actor, be it in theatre or in films. He has been impressive in his role that spoofs a director in IHLS and has created a niche for himself in spite of not being a front man'
