Editor-turned-filmmaker Shirish Kunder says he is happy about the positive reactions for Agneepath director Karan Malhotra, who was his assistant on his debut directorial Jaan-E-Mann.
It's rare to see celebs like Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan in a simple avatar. The actors attended the special screening of Agneepath in a not-so-glamorous avatar. Sanjay Dutt also invited his gorgeous Satte Pe Satta co-star Karisma.
"Hearing a lot of nice things about Agneepath. Proud of the director Karan Malhotra. He was my assistant
on Jaan-E-Mann," Kunder posted on his Twitter page.
Jaan-E-Mann, a 2006 movie, starred Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta in the lead roles. Malhotra was the first assistant director for the movie.
Malhotra's directorial debut Agneepath, a remake of the 1990 movie of the same name, released Thursday. With Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra in key roles, the film has received a thumbs up from industry members.
