Vinnil Markan is the director who would be making his debut with JAYANTABHAI KI LUV STORY. While the First Look of the film promises a fun outing, not many are aware that the director has been associated with Kumar Taurani for almost a decade.
'Vinnil had some nice stories in hand across many genres. When he spoke to producer Kumar Taurani about it, he suggested him to start with a lighter film. A couple of years went in the process and finally JAYANTABHAI KI LUV STORY was finalised amongst many scripts that were short-listed,'' informs a source, 'The all-around sentiment was that that the film was tailor-made for Vivek.'
Incidentally Vinnil had also assisted filmmaker Kookie Gulati during the making of PRINCE which was the first ever collaboration of Kumar Taurani and Vivek Oberoi.
'My association with Vinnil goes back a long way. 8-9 years back he had done many music videos for me. Later during the making of PRINCE, I asked him to assist Kookie. From that day onwards we were in a commitment that he would make a movie for my production house,'' says Kumar.
Vivek too didn't have any qualms around working with Vinnil since he had interacted with him quite often during PRINCE.
Reveals Kumar, 'Yes, Vivek was quite keen on Vinnil. He had confidence in him and they were in touch for long. They had been debating for long on what to make and this is how JAYANTABHAI KI LUV STORY was born.''
