Luv Ranjan is a fine director who makes films on youthful themes having strong family sentiment. His films have generally found a lot of love from the audience, be it the Pyaar Ka Punchnama series or Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. The director gears up for his next theatrical release, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. It releases on 8th of March, 2023, on the auspicious occasion of Holi. Luv, along with his lead hero, Ranbir Kapoor, graced Pinkvilla with an exclusive interview of his, where he answered questions pertaining his upcoming release and also his future slate of movie releases.

Luv Ranjan has made a very strong intellectual property with Pyaar Ka Punchnama and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety also has all that it takes to develop into a very successful franchise. When Luv was asked about his thoughts on franchises and whether he was willing to revive his earlier films for a sequel, he said, “Every year, we fear something or the other, and every time, we develop a safety tool. When a franchise film works, everyone hops onto the bandwagon of making franchises and once a couple of franchise films crash, people are quick to deduce that franchise films are not working. As a society, we are so result centric that all our decisions are based on how the last one was received.” Ranbir Kapoor agreed to what Luv said and shared that he never followed a trend either and never did a film based on the kind of films that were working then. Having said that, he also shared that he found nothing wrong if a filmmaker’s approach was based on the kind of films that are working, as long as they entertain audiences.

Answering the second part of the question, Luv said that he hasn’t really given it (the possibility of taking Pyaar Ka Punchnama’s franchise forward) a definite thought. Adding to it, he said that he always thinks to make a third Pyaar Ka Punchnama film, unaware of when he’ll make it. Examplifying what he meant, he shared that it is quite similar to be wanting to make a second Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety film, when neither the story, nor a proper timeline is in place.
