\"I always wanted to direct a film. It (direction) is very much in the pipeline. But due to other commitments I was not able to do it. Now seems to be the right time. As far as acting is concerned I have done just one or two films a year,\" Dhillon said.

She has not penned the script but the story idea came from her.

\"It is my story idea. We are giving finishing touches. We will take few months. Hopefully we will start working on it next year. It is a romantic film filled with emotions and comedy. I want to start with something that is light.\"

\"I do have few actors in mind for my film but it is too early to talk about it,\" she said.

The veteran actresss has plans to co-produce the film.

\"We will have a production company but we are also looking up for tie ups. I don`t think I will be able to do it alone. I don\'t think I have that much expertise,\" she said.
