NEW DELHI: After exploring the world of showbiz as an actor, Rimi Sen is gearing up to go behind the camera for film direction. The Dhoom star says she doesn’t want to pursue a career in acting anymore and plans on using the Bigg Boss Nau platform as a first step towards her journey into filmmaking.
“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 a practice match for me,” the actor said in an interview.
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.
