Director Divya Khosla Kumar's Sanam Re, starring Yami Gautam, Pulkit Samrat and Urvashi Rautela will be released on around 2000 screens in India.

The film, which according to the director is not a love triangle but a story about all the characters finding true love, will clash with Abhishek Kapoor's Fitoor which is a cinematic adaptation of Great Expectations. The two films are seeking to cash in on Valentine's Day - which is bound to translate into a hike in weekend collections after the films open to audiences on 12 February.
