New Delhi: After exploring the world of showbiz as an actress, Rimi Sen is gearing up to go behind the camera for film direction. The "Dhoom" star says she doesn't wants to pursue her career in acting anymore and she plans on using the "Bigg Boss Nau" platform as a first step towards her journey as a director.
"As an actor, I'm not interested in doing any films now, unless it is an emergency and it is something really good, which I can't refuse and I know it is never going to happen. So, I don't want to pursue my career anymore as an actor,” Rimi told IANS over phone before entering the 'Bigg Boss' house from near Lonavla.
The actress, who has explored the world of Bollywood as well as the other regional film industries, is one of the 14 contestants of the ninth season of the reality TV show, which is yet again hosted by superstar Salman Khan. The show went on air on Sunday on Colors channel.
Rimi is planning to make the most of her stay aloof from the world in the purpose-built house.
“It is just that I'm planning to get into direction by the next year and for directing I need to handle a lot of people, talk to a lot of people which I'm not good at this moment. As I like to interact with very few people. So, maybe my stay in 'Bigg Boss Nau' would be practice match for me,” the actress said.
Rimi, who has featured in “Golmaal: Fun Unlimited”, “Kyon Ki...” and “Garam Masala”, notes that she is working on a script with 'someone', but nothing is finalised yet.
The reality show, an Indian version of international series "Celebrity Big Brother", is known for its notorious qualities like fueling controversies and constants brickbats.
Before entering into the house, Rimi noted that she is not at all into controversies, and had mixed feelings about getting locked inside a house for three months under constant camera surveillance. They are without any gadgets and luxury.
With the theme "double trouble", this season of "Bigg Boss" has many TV celebrities like Roopal Tyagi, Ankit Gera, Kishwar Merchant, Aman Verma and Prince. The contestants are sent in as couples and the show will test their patience as a pair.
