Sonam Kapoor is no doubt a talented actress and she proved it by winning a National Award. Her performance in ‘Neerja’ was highly acclaimed and since then, she is on movie signing spree. The 32-year-old actress, who has back to back movies to release, wishes to direct a film, but her acting work doesn’t let her go behind the cameras. Sonam told a leading daily, “I do want to direct, but fortunately, I keep getting a lot of work. I have four releases this year. Whenever I do get time to breathe, I will start working on the subject.’’

She further added, “Currently, it’s difficult to give up such good work and take a decision. I would need to take a year off. So it’s a huge sacrifice, and I love acting; it’s my passion. I would love to work with Alia (Bhatt), Swara (Bhaskar) and Bebo (Kareena Kapoor Khan).”
