Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra says it's a brave decision to release Sixteen with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's much-talked about mega project Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Raj Purohit directed Sixteen is coming out on Friday and will compete for the top place with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Anurag Kashyap's Shorts.
"Every film has it's own place. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is a damn good film. Rakeysh has made a very good film and Farhan (Akhtar) is brilliant and I really like Milkha. Hopefully, everything will do well," Mishra said at the screening of Sixteen on Wednesday.
"If there are two films, they have their respective places. People will see both the films. But it is a remarkable thing to release your film with '...Milkha...', a brave decision," he added.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is a biopic on former Olympian Milkha Singh, while Sixteen talks about the early loss of innocence among children nowadays.
Shorts is a bouquet of five short films made by five different directors.
