Mumbai: Filmmaker Hansal Mehta has stepped in the shoes of director Ajay Bahl for a film titled `City Lights`.

After the success of `B A Pass`, Bahl was supposed to direct `City Lights`. But owing to creative differences with producer Mukesh Bhatt of Vishesh Films, the partnership did not work out.

"Hansal Mehta will be directing `City Lights`... He is a good director and we have liked his work. It will feature Rajkumar," Mukesh Bhatt told reporters.

Mehta and actor Rajkumar of `Kai Po Che` fame recently delivered a hit film `Shahid`, based on slain lawyer Shahid Azmi.

Bhatts were even considering to rope in director Vishal Mahadkar, who made a film for them `Blood Money`.

"I was offered this project but I couldn`t do it. They did discuss it with me. I am busy with my own work," Vishal said.

`City Lights` talks about people who migrate to the city of Mumbai. It will go on floors from December.
