Pooja Bhatt may produce Shagufta Rafique's directorial debut

Mumbai, June 30 (IANS) Writer Shagufta Rafique says her directorial debut, tentatively titled "Rose", will probably be produced by Pooja Bhatt. She also reveals that she is keen to work with Ajay Devgn or Emraan Hashmi in her maiden venture.

"Pooja is thrilled about my debut project and she had liked the script. She is keen to produce it. Talks are on, but nothing has been signed so far," Sagufta, known for writing "Raaz 3" and "Murder 2", told IANS.

"The film is tentatively titled 'Rose', and it's a thriller with a great love story. My script is ready, so let's see how we go ahead," she added.

Before becoming a filmmaker, Pooja worked as an actress and won laurels for her performances in "Daddy", "Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin", "Sadak" and "Zakhm". As a director, Pooja has made films like "Paap" and "Jism 2" and also produced them.

When asked would Pooja make her comeback to acting with "Rose", Shagufta said: "I would love to cast her, but she is happy producing films. She has perhaps decided not to make a comeback."

With her script being in place, Shagufta is now busy finding the right cast.

"I am looking for the star cast and my wish list is ready. I would love to cast Ajay Devgn or Emraan Hashmi but lets see nothing is confirmed right now."
