Production designer Vanita Omung Kumar, who has worked on the set of Omung Kumar’s “Sarbjit”, says she aspires to be a director.
“Every production designer or art designer eventually wants to get into direction. I would also like to direct someday. Right now, I am too busy with other commitments. Whenever I feel that it’s the right time to direct a film, I will certainly turn director,” Vanita told IANS.
Vanita is currently busy promoting “Sarbjit”, and says she is learning the tactics of direction from her husband.
“I am learning various aspects of direction from Omung. This is the time to learn for me. I am glad I have someone like Omung to guide me,” she said.
“Sarbjit”, which features Randeep Hooda in the title role, is a biopic on the Indian farmer who was convicted of terrorism and spying in Pakistan and was sentenced to death. The movie stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a pivotal role.
The film was screened at the Cannes International Film Festival on Sunday.
