New Delhi: Actor-producer Uday Chopra, who shifted his base from Mumbai to Los Angeles and is currently here to promote his Hollywood film `Grace Of Monaco`, has plans to direct a film, but on his home turf and not abroad.

Son of veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra, Uday`s elder brother Aditya is also a successful filmmaker. He had wielded the megaphone for `Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge`.

When asked bout going behind the camera, Uday, who started his stint in showbiz as an actor with his brother`s directorial venture "Mohabbatein", said: "At the moment I am not planning. It`s a thought in my head."

"I do come from a family of directors. I do think at some point I would like to try it. I would try and direct a film in India instead of directing a film abroad. I think it will be easier for me to direct a film in India but it will take few years," the 41-year-old told reporters.

However, the film will have an international flavour, he says.

"I will make a film, which will have an international kind of language to it ...it could be made for an international audience but in Indian language. So that`s the kind of space I would try," he said.

Jointly produced by Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, Uday`s YRF Entertainment and Arash Amel, `Grace Of Monaco`, a biopic featuring Nicole Kidman as the legendary Hollywood actress-turned-princess Grace and Tim Roth as Prince Rainier of Monaco, hit the Indian screens Firday.
