‘Roja ‘ star Madhoo to turn director by next year
Mumbai: Actress Madhoo, who has done some memorable roles in ‘Roja’, ‘Diljale’ and ‘Phool Aur Kaante’, among others, is now set to turn to direction.
"Yes, I do have certain ideas to get into direction. I am working on it more seriously. I am waiting for the right time because I want to do some good work as an actor this year. My next step for sure is direction," Madhoo said.
"Right now I am open to get some lovely roles. Direction won`t be this year. But it should certainly be by next year, 2013. Right now I am doing a children`s film called `Tomchi`. I am doing a guest appearance in the film," she added.
The actress, who worked in southern films, would like to direct a Hindi film, "but in what scale the film will be launched, I need to give a thought on that."
Married to industrialist Anand Shah, Madhoo is a mother of two daughters.
The actress says she takes inspiration from her aunt, Hema Malini, adding: "Hema Malini is a wonderful human being. She is indeed my inspiration and I have great respect for her. But I have my own ideas and thoughts to get into direction."
She was last seen in Hema`s directorial venture `Tell Me O Kkhuda`.
