Actress Rati Agnihotri will be seen playing mother to her real life son Tanuj Virwani in his Bollywood debut "Luv U Soniyo". The newcomer calls her his "lucky charm".
"Luv U Soniyo", directed by Joe Rajan, also features Neha Hinge.
Tanuj says when he had signed the movie, his mother had no idea, but when he told her about it and handed over the cheque of the signing amount to her, the gleam in her eyes reflected her happiness.
"Later, when Joe and I were discussing about who should play the mother's character, we both took mom's name. It's as if we were thinking on the same wavelength. My mom is my lucky charm and I'm happy she is part of my first Bollywood film," Tanuj said in a statement.
Distributed by Viacom 18 Media Pvt. Ltd., and co-produced by Harvey India Productions and Odyssey Corporation India Limited, the film will release July 26.
