Actor Madhoo, who has done some memorable roles in Roja, Diljale and Phool Aur Kaante, among others, is now set to turn to direction.
"Yes, I do have certain ideas to get into direction. I am working on it more seriously. I am waiting for the right time because I want to do some good work as an actor this year. My next step for sure is direction," Madhoo told IANS.
"Right now I am open to get some lovely roles. Direction won't be this year. But it should certainly be by next year, 2013. Right now I am doing a children's film called 'Tomchi'. I am doing a guest appearance in the film," she added.
The actor, who worked in southern films, would like to direct a Hindi film, "but in what scale the film will be launched, I need to give a thought on that."
Married to industrialist Anand Shah, Madhoo is a mother of two daughters.
The actor says she takes inspiration from her aunt, Hema Malini, adding: "Hema Malini is a wonderful human being. She is indeed my inspiration and I have great respect for her. But I have my own ideas and thoughts to get into direction."
She was last seen in Hema's directorial venture Tell Me O Kkhuda.
