Vikramaditya Motwane says he is nervous about the release of his second film 'Lootera'.

The film stars Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh in the lead. The first look of this period drama was launched at a single-screen theatre in south Mumbai.

The film, set in the Bengal of 1950s, is inspired by O Henry's story 'The Last Leaf'. "We have been inspired by the book but we haven't adapted it. We have made changes in it. It is a fresh film," Motwane said.

"I don't want to stick to any particular genre. I want to try out different things," he said.
