Filmmaker Vibhu Puri, whose debut movie was Hawaizaada, is ready to start his next film, tentatively titled Ustaad.

"My next film is a contemporary love story set in today’s date. It’s a slice-of-life kind of a film. It’s an unusual love story about personal relationships. If things go well, I will start shooting for the film by April," Puri said. 

The director said he is negotiating to cast a few actors, whose names will be officially announced in a "few more days".

Puri is an assistant director with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. His debut directorial Hawaizaada, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, was inspired by the biography of scientist Shivkar Bapuji Talpade.
