I’d direct film in India, not abroad: Uday Chopra

Mumbai, June 15 :

Actor-producer Uday Chopra, who shifted his base from Mumbai to Los Angeles and is currently here to promote his Hollywood film “Grace Of Monaco”, has plans to direct a film, but on his home turf and not abroad.

Son of veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra, Uday’s elder brother Aditya is also a successful filmmaker. He had wielded the megaphone for “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge”.

When asked bout going behind the camera, Uday, who started his stint in showbiz as an actor with his brother’s directorial venture “Mohabbatein”, said: “At the moment I am not planning. It’s a thought in my head.”

“I do come from a family of directors. I do think at some point I would like to try it. I would try and direct a film in India instead of directing a film abroad. I think it will be easier for me to direct a film in India but it will take few years,” the 41-year-old told IANS.

However, the film will have an international flavour, he says.

“I will make a film, which will have an international kind of language to it …it could be made for an international audience but in Indian language. So that’s the kind of space I would try,” he said.

Jointly produced by Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, Uday’s YRF Entertainment and Arash Amel, “Grace Of Monaco”, a biopic featuring Nicole Kidman as the legendary Hollywood actress-turned-princess Grace and Tim Roth as Prince Rainier of Monaco, hit the Indian screens Firday.
