Konkona Turned director

Daughter, Konkona Sen Sharma is following steps of her mother Aparna Sen. If you are wondering why am I saying this? Then, the actress is ready to toe her mother and try out her hand in direction. The actress is ready to toe her mother Aparna Sen as she wants to try her hand at direction.

Like her mother’s films she is also interested to direct acting-oriented movie, not a typical Bollywood masala kind movie. Instead of joining in her mother’s production house, Konkona will start her own independent venture. The actress has already a good equation with many heavy weights. A source says,

Since Konkona has a good equation with many heavyweights, someone will definitely fund her venture because they would trust her seeing her body of work,” says a trade source.

When contacted Konkona, who’s pregnant right now, confirms,

“I definitely want to work on my big direction plan. I do feel that direction is the next step for me and it is something that really excites me. I have to sit down and plan how I want to go about it. Right now I’m not doing anything and this is the longest break that I have taken, but I will get back to work next year. I think I will direct the kind of films that people have seen me acting in.”

Knowing the talent she has showcased in Mr. and Mrs. Iyer, 15 Park Avenue, Luck By Chance, Omkara, Page 3 and many others, we don’t doubt that it will be something to watch out for.
