Sonam Kapoor hopes to conquer the world; what with her acting career, her apparel company, her own app, she now plans to don the director’s cap.
“I have found a couple of scripts. They are mostly ready, but it will still take a little time to work on them and finalise them. I think I am going to do something [with regard to directing a film] in a year or two,” the actor told Hindustan Times.
She says that some of Bolly’s most noted directors have urged her head into direction. “Be it Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Aanand L Rai, R Balki or Ram Madhvani — any director that I work with has told me, ‘Please direct [a film]’. But it’s surely not happening right now, as I am too tired from working so much. It’s great that I have work, but I need to take some time off to direct. It could be two to three years.”
But the Veere Di Wedding star isn’t planning on directing any time soon.
“One half of 2018 is already over. That’s why I feel it should happen in another one-and-a-half to two years. I intend to continue acting and direct as well — not in the same film, but at the same time. So let’s see how things go,” added Sonam.
She isn’t the only female Bollywood actor to head into direction, Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra have also ventured into direction in the past.
