Shagufta wants Bipasha, Randeep for directorial debut

Mumbai: Shagufta Rafique, who has been writing for Vishesh Films after quitting her job as a bar dancer, is all set to weild the megaphone. She says she would love to rope in Bipasha Basu and Randeep Hooda for her maiden directorial venture.

"Nothing has been finalised yet, but I would like to have Bipasha and Randeep to act in my film," Shagufta, who wrote the script for ‘Woh Lamhe’, told IANS.

"It will be a thriller and I am just waiting to finalise the cast and the production house. As soon as that is done, I will surely make the official announcement," she said stressing upon the fact that it would be an "interesting" announcement.

She, however, denied rumours of Reliance Entertainment producing her directorial venture saying: "I have written another film which has been brought by Reliance. My directorial venture will not be produced by Reliance as of now."

After writing the screenplays for films like "Dhoka" and "Murder 2", she felt direction was the next obvious step.

"I wanted to get into direction since past three years. When you write screenplays, you write about visuals and other details. And when you see someone else directing your work, you tend to feel that you could have done it better," she said.
