Actor-turned producer Sanjay Kapoor has scheduled the release of his debut production,
, with Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha on December 5.
This has pitted the movie in direct competition with the respective projects of two stars — Ranbir Kapoor and Aamir Khan.

While Anurag Kashyap’s directorial with Ranbir Kapoor, Bombay Velvet, will hit theatres on November 28, and Raju Hirani’s film with Aamir Khan, P.K., will release two weeks after Sanjay’s production.
But Sanjay says that he is not worried.
"Both, Ranbir and Aamir, are big stars, and I know their films are due for release around the same time as mine. But I only hope that each one of us delivers a super hit film," says Sanjay.
The actor-turned-film-maker adds, "You can’t make a movie and release it while feeling threatened. You have to be confident about your film. But the business gets affected only if the movies are released on the same day, since the audience gets shared. If the film is good, it will run."
He goes on to say that one can’t avoid clashes when there are so many films up for release.
"There will be a film before you and there will one after you too. There was a time when people used to say that no film should release during IPL, but 2 States came during that time and did big business."
Sanjay also confirms that he has acquired the rights to the Rishi Kapoor-Neetu Singh starrer, Khel Khel Mein (1975).
"I will be casting established young actors, but haven’t decided the names yet. I will start working on the project soon," says Sanjay.
Sanjay to return to acting?
Sanjay Kapoor, who was last seen in the 2010 film Prince, says he might act in his next production—the remake of Khel Khel Mein (1975).
"If I get something really interesting, I will surely do it. The script is not ready, so once it’s finalised, I will decide. I will have to see which role I can play; definitely not ones that the young stars are going to play," says Kapoor.
