New Delhi: Shah Rukh Khan`s superhero movie `RA.One` will compete with Govinda-starrer `Loot` and Chirag Paswan`s debut vehicle `Miley Na Miley Hum`, which are releasing Friday.

Directed by Rajneesh Thakur, `Loot`, also starring Shweta Bhardwaj, Mahakshay Chakraborty, Hansika Motwani, Sunil Shetty and Javed Jaffrey, marks singer Mika`s acting debut.

The film, which takes a dig at government policies, revolves around four unskilled conmen who are on a mission to steal jewellery from Bangkok. They plan to rob two casinos and a hotel. But the foursome lands up in trouble after upsetting wrong people in their quest to win.

The film had a bumpy ride -- it was wrapped up last year but the release got delayed due to financial issues.

That was not the only trouble - while shooting in Pattaya, Thailand, the crew had to face a problem when they failed to get permission to shoot at a particular location there. Some of the crew-members were arrested by the local police as they didn`t have the required papers.

"Loot" is an important film for Mithun Chakraborty`s son Mahaakshay, whose last two releases - `Jimmy` and `Haunted` - failed to boost his acting career. It is equally important for model-turned-actress Shweta Bhardwaj, who will be seen in it after damp squibs like `Mission Istanbul` and `Bin Bulaye Baaraati1.

Those who don`t have an appetite for action recipes can look forward to Chirag Paswan`s debut film `Miley Naa Miley Hum`, about a boy`s quest for love.

Chirag, son of politician Ram Vilas Paswan, has teamed up with Kangana Ranaut in this romance drama, which revolves around a young tennis player (played by Chirag) who is stuck between his parents and three girls.

Produced by Anuuj Saxena under his banner Maverick Productions and directed by Tanveer Khan, it will see a host of other actors - Neeru Bajwa, Sagarika Ghatge, Kabir Bedi, Poonam Dhillon and Suresh Menon.

Chirag worked hard to make an mark with his debut, he took seven months training at Mahesh Bhupathi Tennis Academy before facing the camera for the movie, which was initially titled "One And Only".

However, the name was changed to `Miley Naa Miley Hum`.

There are some similarities in `Loot` and `Miley Naa Miley Hum`.

Just like `Loot`, this one too has an item number picturised on television actress Shweta Tiwari and Chirag.

This film too got delayed -- although it was announced three years ago, it went on floors much later as Chirag got busy with his father`s political work.
