But it is at an early stage. Nothing is finalised yet," Shukla told PTI. Abhishek and Asin earlier featured together playing brother-sister in Rohit Shetty's comedy film 'Bol Bachchan'.
If all goes well, this time they will be paired romantically opposite each other. "We are reworking on our script. And then accordingly we will decide things. As of now we have not signed any heroine," Shukla said. Shukla's directorial venture 'Oh My God' had Paresh Rawal playing the role of an atheist while Akshay Kumar was seen in a modern day avatar of Lord Krishna.
The film was a satirical-comedy-drama on religion and did well at the box office after its release on September 28 last year. This time again, the Abhishek starrer yet-to-be-titled film will have a social element in it, but the director is not willing to share any details about it.
The film is reportedly backed by Bhushan Kumar, Chairman and Managing Director of T-Series, and Shyam Bajaj. It will go on floors this year. Meanwhile, Shukla was planning to work with 'Dabangg' actress Sonakshi Sinha, but nothing is happening on that front. "For the film with Sonakshi nothing is finalised yet. We are yet to work on the script," Shukla said.
