Mumbai, Jan 14 (IANS) Writer Shagufta Rafique has almost finished the scripting of her film with Rahul Bhatt, whom she describes as "a typical hero" and says she will start rolling the camera for the project by mid of the year.

Known for writing "Raaz 3" and "Murder 2", Shagufta has almost "finished the scripting of my film".

"And the film will hopefully go on the floors by the mid of 2013. However, my film with Rahul Bhatt will be my second film because before this film, I may direct a film for some other banner," Shagufta told IANS.

Shagufta says her film with Rahul will be seasoned with the flavour of the latter's father, Mahesh Bhatt's movies.

"I don't want to give him a normal hero kind of a launch. He is a typical hero material so our intention is not to put him in a typical action genre," she said.

"He will be seen as a sweet and simple boy in my film, which will have the flavour of 'Daddy', 'Saaransh' and other Mahesh Bhatt's films," she said.

"The film will have the pulse of Mahesh Bhatt kind of films. I am extremely sure he will justify the role to the 'T'," she added.
