After Raees, which was banned in Pakistan due to its “objectionable content” of showing Muslims in a negative light, director Rahul Dholakia says he has registered a new script devoid of controversial, political and communal elements.

Prodded about more details of the new project at hand, Dholakia said, “Not at the moment -- too early -- but it’s in development -- exciting.”
He said it’s a yet untitled project. The writer-director has also been working on this script eagerly.

His last directorial Raees, featuring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Pakistani actor Mahira Khan, is about a Muslim bootlegger in Gujarat. He had co-written the movie with three journalists. The film was mired in controversies, but opened to a good reception at the box office.
