MANASI Joshi Roy, the actor turned producer insists on adding ‘creative' as a suffix to her new role. "I always believe that I'm a creative producer, and not just a producer.

I like designing my complete show which I'm doing with Cinemascope", says Joshi.

Joshi Roy's prowess as a director will come to the fore with the launche of a new season of Cinemascope. The Bollywood-based show hosted by Roshni Chopra will take the viewers through new releases and their making, besides filling them in with all the gossip related to the films and its cast. It will also package reviews, previews and the box-office outcomes. The small screen might experience a surfeit of such programmes but the newlyturned director claims that her show, replete with trivia will stand out. "Apart from trivia, interviews with actors and behind-the-scene footage are going to be our USPs," she says.

Manasi with husband Rohit Roy has launched a production house, called Magic Works. However, the actor, who won hearts as Sudha in Saaya, has no plans of appearing on the small screen any time soon. "Not until I get something exciting," she says.

Next summer, she will appear on the big screen when Alibaug releases. The year 2009 will also see the release of Pankh, which is co-produced by the Roys. "We are very happy to have made a nonmainstream film like Pankh.

We want to produce more films in future. At present, however, we don't have anything exciting to talk about," she says. After mapping a successful journey in the world of entertainment, the actor, who has her roots in theatre, longs to go back to stage. "I wish to do some plays sometime soon," says the daughter of Arvind Joshi, an eminent Gujarati theatre personality.
