Mumbai, Feb. 9 -- Vinil Mathew's directorial debut, Hasee Toh Phasee (2014), did fairly well at the box office. To acknowledge the efforts of the film's writer and friend, Harshavardhan Kulkarni, Vinil has now directed the video of the title track of the latter's directorial debut.
"When Harshavardhan approached Vinil for the video, he gladly agreed to work on it. They share a great camaraderie, and this was Vinil's way of expressing his gratitude and respect for his film's writer," says a source close to Harshavardhan.
Apparently, Vinil hasn't charged a penny for the contribution. "When I narrated the concept to Vinil, whom I collaborate with on a lot of projects, he loved the idea. He agreed to direct the video and insisted that he wouldn't charge a fee for it. He had to juggle his busy schedule, but he managed somehow," Harshavardhan says.
