The 2009 Korean film is the story of two spies, former lovers who are now sworn enemies, on a mission to stop a Russian crime group from stealing a chemical weapon.
The Heyy Babyy director said getting good writers on board for the film was difficult as most of them are really busy.
"The biggest difficulty in film industry today is not that of getting dates, actors or finance, but writers. We don't get writers. They are like heart surgeons with whom you need to meet after fixing an appointment. You've to stratergise your life according to writers," he said.
Of how many writers have written the film, Sajid said, "I've got three writers, one of them is Hussain Dalal who wrote Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and 2 States."
However, Sajid did not divulge any further details regarding the movie.
Sajid's last two films - Himmatwala and Humshakals - tanked at the box office.
