New Delhi: 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.

"Concept registered. Now to write the new script. No controversy. No politics. No communal shit. Thrilling," Dholakia tweeted on Monday.

Prodded about more details of the new project at hand, Dholakia told IANS: "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.

"Normally it's a writer's block; this time it's the writer's itch," he tweeted on Saturday.

His last directorial Raees, featuring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Pakistani actress 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.
