Mumbai: Bollywood actress Rani Mukherjee wants to be a film director.
In a recent interview, Rani said: “Directing is something that I will surely do. It really fascinates me. It is a challenge that I want to take up. I want to make commercial movies that hopefully people will like, close to the kind of films that I have done in my career. The thought of being behind the camera has been coming and going out of my head, but now I have set my mind on it. Let's see when I can get that script that pushes me to switch sides. I'm sure it will come soon.”
The media report says, Rani wants to dabble in various genres.
“I want to make films that entertain. I'm not someone who will make films for just myself. I want people to come into the theatres, get transported into another world, to relate to the characters, laugh, cry, enjoy the dances and songs and go home entertained. After spending the years that I have spent in the industry, I know the nuances of directing. It's now the question of taking that big step forward. It can happen today or it could happen a while later but it's surely happening.”
Rani knows that she will be under enormous pressure because people will equate her acting prowess with her directorial skills.
“I have always liked challenges, so I'm not scared. It will be fun. I know that people will compare, but that will not be a deterrent. I'm quite tough!”
