Rahul Roy to turn director

Mumbai: Led into Bollywood by the Bhatt camp in movies like `Aashiqui` and `Junoon`, actor Rahul Roy is set to make a comeback, though this time as a producer and director as well.

Rahul forayed into production last year with a Bhojpuri film `Elaan`, made under the banner of Rahul Roy Productions, featuring Bhojpuri megastar Manoj Tewari in the lead role and taking on the issue of corruption.

"I had produced a Bhojpuri film last year in November and it did quite well. So then I decided to produce a Hindi film. It is not easy as the Hindi film industry is different and much bigger. I am almost done with the script, it is a romantic-thriller," Roy told PTI.

Now Rahul is ready to don the hat of actor, as well as the producer-director. "I am keen to go back to Hindi films, both as an actor and hopefully as a director. I might end up directing this film. Also, I might act in the film…I haven`t thought about acting yet…but direction is likely to happen," Roy said.

The untitled venture will be a two hero film. "We would have two actors and one heroine. One actor will be from south and the other actor and the lead actress from Bollywood," Rahul said.

"When I was writing the script, I did have stars in my mind, but can`t reveal their names, it is too early," he said. The film is likely to go on floors later this year.
