Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan has rubbished rumours that her upcoming film Happy New Year will see the coming together of Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan. The Om Shanti Om director said her best friend SRK is the only actor who has been finalised for the movie, which is still in its scripting stage.
"There is no truth in the rumour that Big B is going to star in the film. Besides SRK, I never cast anyone in my film till I have my script ready. As of now, only Shahrukh and me are in the film," Farah told PTI. Earlier, it was reported that the Main Hoon Naa director will bring the two actors together in the film.
The duo was last seen together in Bhoothnath also starring Juhi Chawla. The other actors who were said to be working in the movie were Sanjay Dutt, Zayed Khan and Juhi Chawla, a claim denied by Farah. Describing the film as "modern and contemporary", the 44-year-old director said it would go on floors this year. "I would resume my work on the script once I finish shooting for the chat show," she said.
