A successful actor and producer, Shah Rukh Khan says he fears treading the path as a film director as he is not confident of “calling the shots”.
Asked if he ever plans to turn director, Shah Rukh told IANS, “I find it a very lonely job. I think if I have to direct, I need to gain my confidence in the next five years. (As of) Now I just feel very scared to direct. I don’t know when to say, ‘Okay, cut’.”
He believes he needs to give himself some years to be confident of being able to go behind the camera.
“I have plans that in the next two to three years, I should go and take some course for three months to see how exciting it would be to tell a story. I don’t know if I can call the shots,” he added.
Shah Rukh is currently busy promoting his forthcoming release Fan, and he says the director of the film Maneesh Sharma has lived with the script for 10 years.
Fan is releasing on April 15.
