I mean just two days ago we messaged each other. There's absolutely nothing. We are just releasing our films on the same day. There's enough space. We are giving the audience a lot of things to choose from good films. I can say that our film is really good. I hope one choice that the audience has that this film is good. I hope the other two films (Saaho, Mission Mangal) are also very good. That's all I can hope for. But, August 15 is a great day," John said during trailer release of his film.
