Mumbai: Cast and crew of upcoming gangster romantic film 'Once upon a time in Mumbaai again', launched the first look of the movie, while Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar denied any chances of box office clash with another film on the same date.

Slated to release on August 8, the film, 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again' would simultaneously hit the theatre screens with 'Chennai Express', starring another mega Bollywood actor from Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan.

Akshay Kumar, a Bollywood actor, rebuffed the grapevine, where insiders of the film industry have predicted a fierce competition between Khan and Kumar.

"I see it as a positive sign, as Eid is a big day. Two films are releasing on the same day. It is such a big day, that it would accommodate both the films. It is not a big deal and should be taken in good spirit," said Kumar.

Other members of the cast, including Bollywood actors, Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and director, Milan Luthria, accompanied Kumar.

Bollywood director Milan Luthria said that the film was different from the prequel, which had portrayed the power dynamics in the Bombay underworld circles.

"The first film was about a power struggle and this one is a romantic triangle. There are different kinds of colours in this one. The essence of the movie is fresh and a lot of stress has been laid on romance and music. So we tried something new this time," said Luthria.

The Luthria's earlier release, ' Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai' had released in 2010 and garnered a lot of appreciation for its representation of the underworld power struggle.
