Mumbai, March 9 (IANS) Punit Malhotra, who directed 'I Hate Luv Storys', will now face the camera for his acting debut "Waisi Waali Khushi", a short film by Samar Khan.

Confirming Punit's presence in the movie, Khan told IANS: "He is a good friend, so I asked him to act in it and I must say, it has come up very well. He has done a wonderful job."

"It's a short film. The length of the film is 12 and a half minutes," added Khan, who has earlier helmed films like "Shaurya" and "Kuchh Meetha Ho Jaye".
