Pankaj Kapur

has dabbled in direction in the past with Mausam (2011) that featured his son Shahid Kapoor.

However, the film didn’t exactly set the box office on fire. But that hasn’t deterred the veteran actor from going behind the camera yet again.

"I’m planning to direct soon, but not in the immediate future," says the actor. Prod him a bit to reveal more, and he adds, "I have a few scripts with me right now, and I’m working on another one as we speak."

Kapur has never distinguished between the big and the small screen, and has been a part of cult TV shows like Zabaan Sambhalke and Office Office. So, has he ever thought of returning to television?

He says, "The last job I had [on TV] was Office Office. I really don’t know if I will be able to come back as an actor. However, if something interesting does come up, and if it requires limited working hours and is shot well in advance so that creativity doesn’t get compromised for lack of time, then I would [take it up]. But, in the meantime, I would rather stick to films."
