Mumbai: Raj Kumar Santoshi`s new romantic comedy featuring Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor goes on the floors Feb 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.
