Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, who has two back to back hits - "Bhaag Milka Bhaag" and "Raanjhanaa" in her kitty, revealed that her first dream was to become a director.

The 28-year-old actress, who made her film debut in 2007 through Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Saawariya" opposite Ranbir Kapoor, in an interview said, "Yes, my first dream was to be a director. I love reading, I love movies, and stories. It's because of that I always wanted to direct films" IANS reported.

Acknowledging direction to be her first love, she said, "You get attached to the fame and glamour and I am attached to it. I won't lie about it. That was my first love, but then acting came as a mistress."

Sonam, daughter of actor Anil Kapoor, had assisted Bhansali behind the camera during the filming of Amitabh Bachchan-Rani Mukherjee starrer "Black".

When asked if she would take up direction soon, the "Raanjhanaa" star said, "Yes, I will direct films in future, but right now I want to focus on acting. It's too early to talk about direction right now."

"And if nothing else, at the risk of sounding extremely spoilt, I have my sister (Rhea who produced Aisha) to make movies for me," she added.

"Bhaag Milka Bhaag" (BMB) starring Farhan Akhtar in the male lead is Sonam's second film of the year. After the success of "BMB", Sonam will be once again seen working with the film's director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra in another project. Previously, she had worked with Mehra in Abhishek Bachchan starrer "Delhi 6".

Earlier, it was said that Mehra had roped in Sonam for his next film titled "Mirza Sahiban". However, the actress brushed off the rumours saying, "I am going to work with him in another film but that's not the film (Mirza Sahiban) I am working on," PTI reported.

Not much has been revealed about Mehra and Sonam's next project, but rumours are doing the rounds that the venture, a mythical thriller, has been titled "Raja Aur Krishna Ki Bansuri".
