Filmmaker Rohit Shetty has refuted reports that he will be teaming up with Baahubali star Prabhas for his next movie. “No not at all. I was in Spain when this news started coming in, I don’t know from where,” he said when asked about working with Prabhas.

Earlier last month, there were rumours that Rohit was keen to make a Hindi film with Prabhas, which would be the Telugu star’s Bollywood debut.

The 43-year-old filmmaker is currently working on the fourth instalment of his comedy franchise Golmaal, which stars Ajay Devgn, Parineeti Chopra, Tabu, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Kemmu and Tusshar Kapoor.

The director says the film is “shaping up very well and is all set for a good Diwali release”. The Dilwale director is back on the small screen with the Colors action-reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi season 8.

Rohit said, over the years he has become comfortable with hosting shows on TV, and the only challenge is to take the show a notch higher. “Once you set a mark on TV, it becomes easier. The audience wants to see you as a host. If I am coming back after one season, the challenge is how do we take it on a different level. Stunts have to be tougher than what we did earlier. It shouldn’t be monotonous,” Rohit said.

The celebrity contestants taking part in the show are Geeta Phogat, Hina Khan, Lopamudra Raut, Manveer Gurjar, Shantanu Maheshwari, Shiny Doshi, Rithvik Dhanjani, Ravi Dubey, Nia Sharma, Monica Dogra, Shibani Dandekar and Karan Wahi.

The show goes on air from July 22.
