Mumbai: Filmmaker Rajesh Mapuskar, who is busy scripting his next film, a musical, says he will be heading to Shillong to research for the project.

"I`m scripting my next film, and it will be a musical film. A lot of research needs to be done and I`m busy with that," Mapuskar, who helmed ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’ said.

"I`ll be going to Shillong for the research work, and then the first draft of the script will be ready," he added.

Mapuskar has clarified that it is not any biopic. "It`s an original script about music and dance, so I am putting together the story to form a full-fledged screenplay."

The project is likely to go on floors by next year.

"I don`t want to be in a hurry, but if my script is ready then I may start rolling the cameras by next year," he said.

The cast is also yet to finalised as Mapuskar said: "I don`t script films keeping somebody in mind. I have kept things very open, so only once the script is ready, I shall think about the cast."
