Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s sister Bela Sehgal, who made her directorial debut with Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, will start shooting a love story next year.

Without revealing much about what the film will be, Sehgal told IANS:

All I can say is that my next film is a very different love story. The film will go on pre-production stage this year and, hopefully, I will start shooting it by next year.

At the moment, I don’t want to say anything because it’s too early.

Her debut movie as a director came out in 2012.

Asked why she took such a long break, Sehgal said:

I was busy with my daughters and my family. My daughters were both studying, but now I am settled. Suddenly, you all will hear news (on my work)… Just wait and watch.

After I start my second film, I will not take too long for my next film.

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, starring Boman Irani and Farah Khan, was a unique and comical romantic tale on a Parsi couple.
