Once again Yash Raj Films has had to come out with a statement to refute a false story. This time it is to deny that a new project with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan is in the works.
Rafiq Gangjee of YRF wrote, “Despite our categorical denial of this baseless rumour, the tabloid continued to publish this with an ambiguous quote from a person at YRF. Our SMS in response to their query read, “Totally baseless not true”, which was completely unambiguous. The least that should have been done was to have quoted us correctly and preferably not have carried this concocted story at all.”
He further adds, “For now, we would like to clarify that no such project is being planned which has the two of them paired together.”
Currently YRF has in production a film directed by Maneesh Sharma and starring Anushka Sharma and newcomer Ranveer Singh as the lead pair. However, beyond that, they have not finalised any new projects. Gangjee says when they do they will let us know, “Also, our next set of scripts are still under finalisation and as and when the cast for each of them is locked, we will be more than happy to make the announcements.”
