Manyata Dutt hopes 'Lootera', which released on the same day as her husband Sanjay Dutt's 'Policegiri', also does well at the box office as it is like a family film for her.

While Vikramaditya Motwane directed Lootera' and it was co-produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and and Phantom Films, 'Policegiri' was a TP Aggarwal and Rahul Aggarwal production. Both films released on 5 July.

"I hope it ('Policegiri') does well and 'Lootera' also does well. Ekta (Kapoor) calls me 'bhabhi' and of course, Sonakshi calls me 'bhabhi' and Sanju 'bhaiyya'. So that is also my family film. It's good there is no competition, both are different films. I hope both do well," Manyata said at a theatre in Mumbai.

Sanjay completed 'Policegiri' before serving his remaining three-and-a-half-year jail term in the 1993 Mumbai blast case.

Manyata is also happy with the promos of Sanjay's forthcoming film, the 'Zanjeer' remake, which stars Ram Charan Teja, Priyanka Chopra, Mahie Gill and Prakash Raj.

"Promos are good and Ram Charan is a very good actor, Apoorva (Lakhia) is a very good director. He had done 'Shootout at Lokhandwala' with Sanju and again he is like family to us. Sanju is looking good, he has evolved as an actor," Manyata said.

'Zanjeer 2' is a remake of the 1973-hit by the same name that featured Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan in lead roles.
