Pandey’s next film is apparently loosely based on Ben Affleck's Academy Award winning Hollywood film 'Argo'.

Director Neeraj Pandey, whose last film 'Special 26', also an Akshay Kumar-starrer won critical appreciation, is all set for his next project.

Neeraj, who has also won ‘Indira Gandhi Award for Best First Film of a Director’ for his film ‘A Wednesday’ believes that Hollywood films have always been inspiring  Bollywood.

 “Getting inspired by various Hollywood films is not new to Bollywood, says Neeraj”

The sources added that the new project was still untitled. “Shooting for the film has already started. This film is expected to release next year in January,” says the source.

‘Argo’, a 2012 American political thriller film, was adapted from US Central Intelligence Agency operative Tony Mendez's book ‘The Master of Disguise’ and ‘Joshuah Bearman's 2007 wired article ‘The Great Escape’. The film had Affleck as Mendez with Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin.
