Putting an end to reports about director Nikhil Advani quitting Mehrunissa because of her, actress Chitrangada Singh said "there's no truth in that article".
"I saw that whole article and it was ridiculous. Nikhil gave me a call that morning and said, 'Chitrangada, looks like you are managing a lot,' and we were both laughing. These are all rumours," the 37-year-old said at the unveiling of Femina magazine's bridal issue cover featuring her.
"I really don't want to say anything else because things are twisted and written about. There was no truth in the article," she added.
It was reported that Advani was so unhappy with Chitrangada doing the lead in "Mehrunissa" that he refused to direct the film. However, he cited dates as the real reason for quitting the project.
Mehrunissa is being produced by Sudhir Mishra but it is still not clear who will direct it. It was Mishra who discovered Chitrangada and launched her with his critically acclaimed directorial venture Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi.
Mehrunissa is also expected to star megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor.
