"I will direct a big budget film with newcomers. I don't know why studios don't make big budget films with newcomers! We need to support them," John told IANS.
"Why do we only make big budget films with only top five actors, why aren't we getting mature? We all need to come out of that," added the actor, who produced the sleeper hit "Vicky Donor", starring debutant Ayushmann Khurrana.
However, John, who is awaiting the release of his next project "Madras Cafe", is not sure when he will direct a movie.
"But for sure, I want to direct films. Whenever the right time comes, I will get into it."
