Apurva Agnihotri wants to be a director

By
Apurva Agnihotri has claimed that he is going to shift from acting to directing in the near future.

The actor, who is known for his roles in Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin and Pardes, also said that he has received directorial offers in the past but rejected them because he did not feel he was ready.

"See, I have this desire to direct. I had got this beautiful offer while I was doing a show for NDTV called Say Shava Shava," Agnihotri, 37, told IANS

'I can't name the person who gave the offer but it was huge. It couldn’t have been bigger than that. But I don't know why - somewhere I wasn’t ready for it then. "

He added: "I think I need to go on the opposite side [behind the camera] and unlearn a lot of things because television corrupts you.

"Every actor who works in television feels he can direct because we end up doing 10-12 scenes in a day and after 6-8 months, we start feeling that we can write and direct too. But it ain't really that easy, especially when you're making a film."
