'K.G.F Chapter-1' is releasing in five languages and will hit the marquee on December 21. Shah Rukh Khan's 'Zero' is also scheduled for release the same day, but the makers of the film are undeterred, says producer Ritesh Sidhwani.

Excel Entertainment's Ritesh Sidhwani said, "I don't think it is a clash or a fight for space. I think there is enough space. The reason we're coming on the same date is that it is an important festive date for the south and we're releasing in four different south Indian languages. We couldn't have delayed it."

"We're not aiming to go as wide as 'Zero' in the north Indian market. So there will be no clash."

Excel Entertainment, known for commercial Hindi drama films, such as 'Rock On!! 2', 'Raees', 'Fukrey' series, 'Gold' and many more, is now backing up 'KGF' which is a Kannada film. Sidhwani says cinema has overcome the language barrier.

"As long as the story is engaging, there will be some emotional connection to it. As long as the film connects with you, emotionally identifies with you, I don't think language would be a barrier," said Sidhwani.

An action period drama based on Kolar gold fields, it is written and directed by Prashanth Neel and produced by Vijay Kiragandur under the banner Hombale films. The film stars Yash and Srinidhi Shetty in the lead roles.

It is slated for December 21.
