Simi Garewal to direct a film soon
Simi Garewal is planning to go behind the camera to direct a film
Simi, 66, who gave memorable performances in films like ‘Do Badan’, ‘Karz’, ‘Siddhartha’, ‘Mera Naam Joker’, is all charged up to return to the silver screen, not as an actor, but as a director.
“I would be there on small screen back with my show ‘Rendezvous’ next year. While on big screen I will be back soon but behind the camera as a director,” Simi said.
She had written and directed a Hindi feature film ‘Rukhsat’ (1988). The family drama had Mithun Chakraborty, Anuradha Patel, Marc Zuber, Rohini Hattangadi and Amrish Puri.
She is also the writer-director of popular TV talk show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’, which she hosts.
She has also directed a three-part TV documentary series – ‘India’s Rajiv’ (1991).
“We are still in the process (scripting), within a month or two it will be decided. I had also directed documentaries, commercials before. I have been behind the camera for many years. I like being a technician,” Simi said, without divulging any details about the project.
The film would likely be shot in New York and Moscow.
