Mumbai: Veteran actress Simi Garewal is all set to return to film direction after a gap of almost 24 years.

Simi Garewal, who is best remembered for her role in Raj Kapoor`s `Mera Naam Joker`, is all charged up to return to the silver screen, not as an actor, but as a director.

"She has written a script. And she is looking to direct it. The film will be shot in New York and Moscow. It is all in a developing stage...So cannot reveal anything more," a source close to the actress told reporters.

In 1988, Simi had written and directed a Hindi feature film `Rukhsat`. The film, a family drama, featured Mithun Chakraborty, Anuradha Patel, Marc Zuber, Pradeep Kumar, Rohini Hattangadi and Amrish Puri.

She was also the writer-director of the popular TV talk show `Rendezvous with Simi Garewal` (1997), which she hosted. Besides that, she also directed a three-part TV documentary series-- `India`s Rajiv` (1991).

Simi, who is usually spotted in her signature white clothes on TV shows and at award ceremonies, is popularly known as the `Lady in White`.
