Sooraj Pancholi: I don't think I can ever become a director
Sooraj Pancholi is gearing up to start shooting his next with Prabhu Dheva in the director's chair.
The actor's undergoing intense preparation for his action entertainer. Given that he will be directed by someone who dabbles in acting and filmmaking simultaneously, we asked him if he'd ever wield the megaphone.
"Even though people say I have a lot of patience, I don't think I can ever become a director” he states
According to him, It's a one-man show. He has to keep the set in order every single day for weeks and months. I have seen Sanjay sir (Leela Bhansali) and Kabir sir (Khan) doing that from close quarters. After the lunch break, people just become lethargic.
The entire set feels sleepy and tired. The director is one man who has to push everyone all the time.
I can't take that burden on my shoulders. I don't think I can manage so many people... Some 200 at a time. I can try making a short film with five people maybe," says Sooraj. Before making his acting debut with Salman Khan's 'Hero' (2015), the one-film-old actor was an assistant director.
