Mumbai: Writer Shagufta Rafique, who is now all set to make her debut as a director, says she has been looking for the right star cast for her debut project but the stars are not interested in working with her.
"It`s been a while now that I have been looking for a star cast. I went to a couple of stars with my script and they are not interested," Shagufta, who scripted hits like "Raaz 2" and "Murder 2" told reporters.
"Their mindset is different. I don`t think stars want to work with me. I am looking for semi-established stars. I don`t want to run behind people. I want to work with people who are interested in working with me," added the writer who started her journey as a bar dancer and then moved on to scriptwriting.
Tentatively titled "Rose", Shagufta`s debut film will be produced by Pooja Bhatt and will go on the floors by October.
"My film is male oriented, It`s an action thriller and both the actor and actress have to be fit as there are a lot of action scenes in it. I am beginning my career with violence," she said.
