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