Mumbai: Simi Garewal is planning to go behind the camera to direct a film.

Simi, 66, who gave memorable performances in films like 'Do Badan', 'Karz', 'Siddhartha', 'Mera Naam Joker', is all charged up to return to the silver screen, not as an actor, but as a director.

"I would be there on small screen back with my show 'Rendezvous' next year. While on big screen I will be back soon but behind the camera as a director," Simi told us.

She had written and directed a Hindi feature film 'Rukhsat' (1988). The family drama had Mithun Chakraborty, Anuradha Patel, Marc Zuber, Rohini Hattangadi and Amrish Puri.

She is also the writer-director of popular TV talk show 'Rendezvous with Simi Garewal', which she hosts.

She has also directed a three-part TV documentary series - 'India's Rajiv' (1991).

"We are still in the process (scripting), within a month or two it will be decided. I had directed before also documentaries, commercials... I have been behind the camera for many years. I like being a technician," Simi said, without divulging any details about the project.

The film would likely be shot in New York and Moscow.
