Best buddies, Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan & actress Juhi Chawla are all set to clash coming February. Well before you draw any conclusion let us tell you that we are talking about their professional clash. Both Shahrukh (MY NAME IS KHAN) and Juhi's (SUKHMANI- HOPE OF LIFE) respective films are releasing on the same day i.e. 12th February 2010.

Produced by Gurdas Maan & Gurikk Maan under their banner, Sai Loksangeet Pvt Ltd, film SUKHMANI- HOPE OF LIFE, starring Legend of Punjabi Music, Gurdas Maan and Beauty Queen & Actress Juhi Chawla, is all set to release on 12th February, 2010 all over India. This Punjabi lingual film marks the debut of Manjeet Maan in film direction and also casts Divya Dutta, Anoop Soni and Bhagwant Maan in pivotal roles amongst others.

SUKHMANI- HOPE OF LIFE is a story based on the Journey of Major Kuldeep Singh, played by Gurdas Maan, a decorated officer of the Para Battalion, who overcomes personal trauma and social indignity to uphold the morals of the army and the honour of a woman rejected by society and family, while keeping alive the memory of his beloved daughter Sukhmani.

On that fateful day when the beautiful valley of Jammu & Kashmir is bloodied by the gruesome killings of his devoted wife and treasured daughter at the hands terrorists, Major. Kuldeep Singh's life is thrown into disarray. To maintain his sanity and avoid falling in to a black hole of depression, he returns to his duty, fighting the terrorists with renewed vigor and the need to avenge his family. When for a second time he fails to save the life of an innocent girl who becomes a victim of the terrorism, he becomes a broken Man. However, a soldier's war is never over and when duty calls again, he goes out to repatriate innocent civilians from the Wagah Border. It is after meeting Reshma, he decides that protecting her from the social stigma of society as well as from the evil intentions of his own comrade has becomes his goal in life. He faces dishonor and social exclusion, but unwaveringly fights back for his rights, the rights of a woman dispelled by society and the future of a little girl who has nothing to do with terrorism and the hatred in this World.

Sukhmani shows us that both good and evil lie within each of us, however when faced with exceptional circumstances each, human act differently. It shows us that sometimes we have to make choices that are not always accepted by society. SUKHMANI shows us that there is hope for life...

Commenting on his role in the film Gurdas Maan says, "SUKHMANI is a very special film to me in many ways starting from the film marking debut of my wife as a director to my hattrick with Juhi Chawla. This film is made in the memory of my two dear friends Manoj & Suraj whom I have lost. I hope people will like the film and its plot."

"For the third time I have joined the unit of Sai Loksangeet Pvt Ltd. but this time, with Manjeet as the captain of the ship. It has been a wonderful experience for me. This film is very close to my heart as the story takes you in to a world of emotions which would capture your heart and mind totally. I wish we have such projects ahead also," quipped actress Juhi Chawla.

"There are dreams that are fulfilled and some that aren't, and then out of those some are fulfilled through years. SUKHMANI is a gift to Manoj and Suraj, its hope for life and more than that it is a dream which we have tried to fulfill in their memory. Taking the responsibility of direction was a big challenge and now the verdict is in audience court. Keeping fingers crossed," is what the Director of the Film Manjeet Maan says of her maiden venture.
