Raj Kumar Santoshi's new romantic comedy featuring Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor goes on the floors on Feb 1.

When quizzed about the untitled film, Santoshi said: "It's in the same creative space as my Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. Abhay and Sonam would be captured in a comedy of errors like Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, though this is a completely different script and has no bearing on Ajab Prem."

However, it is being said that Santoshi had planned the film as a follow-up to Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani with Ranbir and Katrina.

As for the once-warring couple, a source said: "Anil Kapoor and Santoshi go back a long way to Santoshi's Lajja. Anil was supposed to do Power with Santoshi in 2011. That project didn't take off. It was he who suggested to Santoshi that he do a film with Sonam. Abhay came into the project through Santoshi's long association with the Deols. This will be Abhay-Sonam's second film together post Aisha."

The cinematography would be in the hands of ace-cameraman Ravi K. Chandran. Santoshi would be producing the film.
