Paresh Rawal to turn writer in future

Mumbai, Dec 22 (IANS) Paresh Rawal, who has proved his mettle as an versatile actor, now wants to try his hand at writing. Film direction, however, is not among his plans.

Asked if he wanted to be a director, Rawal told IANS: "I don't think so. I may, you never know, but right now I'm not in that state of mind. If at all, I would love to write because direction demands a lot of energy. An actor has to concentrate only for five minutes at the most."

He has not started writing anything yet, but says he "might in future".

Paresh, who has been open to working with new directors, says he just surrenders himself to them.

"When a new director comes, I surrender myself. No matter how much experience you have (as an actor), director's vision is different and you have to walk with his vision and can't impose your thinking. Otherwise, things will get bitter and that should not happen," the 62-year-old says.

The key to a good relationship with a director is clear communication, Rawal said.

"If you have a problem, go and talk to your director. But once he says 'no', don't push. That is the wrong way to do do things and I'm not that kind of actor, who insists things should happen only his way," he says.
