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.
