Mumbai: His debut movie 'Aiyyaa' may not have garnered desired results at the box office, but director Sachin Kundalkar has moved on. He is now working on a social comedy that he plans to release this year itself.
Though 'Aiyyaa' story was interesting as it narrated a middle-class girl's strange likeness for a guy's body odour, it couldn't amuse movie buffs despite the presence of Rani Mukerji in the lead role.
But Kundalkar seems to be determined to attain success with his next and told IANS: "I am scripting my second film. It's a social comedy. The film is in its scripting stage. I want to spend as much time as possible with the script because I don't want to compromise on the script."
His endeavour is to entertain viewers with a clean comedy.
"I hope the film falls under the category of clean comedy because by the time I release the film, I don't know in what frame of mind the society will be," he said.
When will you roll the camera for the film?
"The film will go on the floors this year itself. I am keen to release the film this year. Once the script is ready, I want to cast stars for the film. Let's see how things fall in place," he said.
"Aiyyaa" was produced by Anurag Kashyap and Rani had teamed up with southern star Prithviraj in it.
