[dropcap]S[/dropcap]peculations were rife in Bollywood that director Imtiaz Ali had replaced Shahid Kapoor with Rajkummar Rao after the Padmaavat actor walked out of his project. However, Rao clarified on Thursday that he has not signed a film with the Highway director yet.
“I am not doing any film with Imtiaz sir yet. I would like to work with him. I am looking forward to doing new good subjects on screen,” said Rajkummar Rao.
Rajkummar confirmed that his next film Imli is with Anurag Basu. It also features Kangana Ranaut.
Meanwhile, Imtiaz too denies having ever confirmed that he was doing a film with Shahid. “I would like to work with Ranbir, Shahid and others. When we meet, we talk about 100 different things. It doesn’t mean that we are doing a film together,” Imtiaz told Dainik Bhaskar.
