Sonam Kapoor, who is currently basking in the success of her last film Veere Di Wedding, is open to widening her horizons. After trying her hands at production along with sister Rhea, Sonam may take up direction too in near future.
In a recent interview, Sonam also said she would love to cast her friend Swara Bhakser in a film.
During an interaction with Hindustan Times, she said, “I have found a couple of scripts. They are mostly ready, but it will still take time to work on and finalise them. I think I am going to do something in a year or two.”
She also revealed the names who encouraged her to take up direction. She said, “Directors that I have worked 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. I need to take some time off to direct. It could be two or three years.”
“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,” Sonam said.
It is going to be exciting to watch Sonam Kapoor turning into a director, and people would like to know what genre she would choose for her first directorial.
In her current career as an actor, Sonam has Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and The Zoya Factor in her kitty.
