He wielded the megaphone for the first time to direct "Hate Story 2", a sequel to the Vivek Agnihotri-directed 2012 release, and the Sushant Singh, Surveen Chawla and Jay Bhanushali-starrer did well at the box office.
So now Pandya is looking forward to make "Hate Story 3" and said it's a "different story" and that "erotic" is part of the narrative.
"We don't want to make a film just for the heck of it. Both 'Hate Story' and 'Hate Story 2' have raised the bar, so the third instalment is much more challenging," Vishal Pandya told IANS.
"We have come across a superb script, but I am not allowed to talk about it right now. I will start shooting for 'Hate Story 3' form November and the film will be widely shot abroad," he added.
Pandya has yet to finalise the cast of the film.
"We are still short-listing actors. I will be able to reveal the names in the next two weeks," he added.
