Suhasini said, "I've been thinking of directing a Kannada movie for long. Due to my son's education, I couldn't take the decision to direct. Even actor Vishnuvardhan has forced me to direct for long. Now I'm free from all the bondages and I'm planning to direct a movie next year. "
"Although I'm staying in Chennai, I've got lot of concern for Kannada films. I'll assure Kannada audiences that they can expect a movie in my direction next year," she added.
Suhasini entered Kannada films through the movie Benkiyalli Aralida Hoovu in 1984. Later she acted in many hit movies.
