Mumbai, April 23 (IANS) Versatile actor Arvind Swamy, who has ruled the Southern film industry for a long time, says he hopes to wield the megaphone soon.
“I have plans to get into direction. Yes, I have written two scripts that I will be directing soon in a year or so. I am not sure whether it will be in Hindi or Tamil,” Arvind told IANS.
Arvind, who made his Bollywood debut with Mani Ratnam’s 1992 film “Roja”, is returning to the Hindi film world with debutant director Tanuj Bhramar’s upcoming film “Dear Dad”.
The actor feels now audiences have changed and they are more receptive to new ideas.
“I was not working for a while, but now I wanted to come back and enjoy my work. These days audiences have also changed… They are more receptive to new ideas. I didn’t want to do the regular films. Now, it’s my time to choose films with so many options that I have,” he said.
“Dear Dad” is a bitter-sweet coming-of-age story involving a father-son duo — 14 year old Shivam and his 45-year-old father Nitin Swaminathan.
