Director Apoorva Lakhia, whose film "Haseena Parkar" is set to clash with Sanjay Dutt's comeback movie "Bhoomi", says he hopes both the films do well commercially.

Lakhia's biopic on underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena Parkar is set to release on September 22 while Dutt's comeback movie "Bhoomi" is also releasing on the same day.

"As far as clash with 'Bhoomi' is concerned, Sanju sir is a very close and dear friend of mine. We went to the same school. Both are different films of different genre... We spoke about it and there is no problem. Every week there are three-four films coming so fortunately or unfortunately both films are releasing together," Lakhia told reporters here.

The director said he hopes Dutt's film does well because he deserves a big hit.

"The call is made by producers to release it and as a director I have nothing to say about it," Lakhia said.

Initially, "Haseena Parkar" was supposed to release on July 14, but it got pushed to August 18 and then to September 22.
