  • Soni Razdan says she'll work with Alia if there's something interesting
  • Soni Razdan is returning to the small screen after 11 years
  • Her film Love Affair has been delayed
Alia Bhatt's mother, actress Soni Razdan, said that there are more chances of them becoming co-stars than she directing the Udta Punjab star in a film, reports Mumbai Mirror. "We'd love to work together but we're more likely to act together than me directing Alia. Our relationship is so lovely; we don't want to burden it with anything to do with films. Soni but if something interesting comes our way, why not," she said. Soni Razdan has directed 2005 film Nazar, starring Meera and Ashmit Patel.
She was all set to direct another film, titled Love Affair but the actress-filmmaker said that the period piece required a "substantial budget". "I will revisit it sometime in the future," she told Mumbai Mirror.
Meanwhile, Soni Razdan is all set for a comeback on the small screen with television show Utre Na Rang Mahi, by Siddhath P Malhotra, according to Mumbai Mirror. Siddhath P Malhotra is the director of We Are Family and Rani Mukerji's upcoming film Hichki. Soni Razdan, who plays a Rajmata Rajeshwari Singh Ranawat in the show, said that there's "nothing of a royal lady in me in real life. You see me mostly in jeans and tees. When Siddharth called, I wasn't interested in television as it's a lot of hard work. But the subject piqued my curiosity and since my next directorial, Love Affair, has been delayed, I took up the offer," she told Mumbai Mirror.
Soni Razdan has featured in shows like Buniyaad and Aisa Des Hai Mera. She started her Bollywood career with 1981 film 36 Chowringhee Lane and went on star in films like Sadak, Sir, Patiala House and Shootout at Wadala.
