New Delhi, March 4 (IANS) After wearing the grease paint for more than two decades, TV actor Kanwaljit Singh is now keen to don the director's hat. He says he is waiting for the right script.

'I would love to venture into direction but I can't do it all alone. I need a good script and a producer,' he told IANS on phone from Mumbai.

Kanwaljit, currently seen in serial 'Sabki Laadli Bebo' on STAR Plus, also feels that advent of daily soaps has made writing in small screen mediocre.

'Today, writing has become mediocre. Earlier, weekly shows provided ample time to writers as well as actors to think and work on the story and characters. But today it has become difficult, they don't have time to work on the nuances,' he said.

'I feel time should be given more consideration so that writers get enough time to explore.'

Kanwaljit started his acting career in 1987 with the popular serial 'Buniyaad'. After that he was seen in shows like 'Saans', 'Dard', 'Siski' and 'Family No.1'. He also acted in films including 'Satte Pe Satta', 'Maachis', '15 Park Avenue', 'Mera Pehla Pehla Pyar'.

The actor is now reteaming with his 'Saans' co-star Neena Gupta on the big screen for their new film 'Hello Zindagi' that also stars Kitu Gidwani, Milind Gunaji and Amit Behl. It is directed by award winning South Indian director Raja Unnithan.

Reema Lagoo's daughter Mrunmayee is debuting with the film and Kanwaljit plays her supportive father who encourages her every move. While Neena Gupta plays Mrunmayee's overprotective mother in the film, releasing Friday.

The actor is all praise for the newcomer.

'Mrunmayee is a very intelligent and an understanding girl. She picks up things quickly. She gets involved in anything she does,' he said.

Apart from 'Hello Zindagi', Kanwaljit is also attached to a Punjabi film 'Ek Kudi Punjab Di', which talks about emancipation of women. The film is being helmed by renowned director Manmohan Singh, who won best cinematographer awards for 'Chandni', 'Darr', 'Mohabbatein', and 'Dil To Pagal Hai'.
