Sujoy not doing a film with Alia or Jacqueline
Rumours don’t rattle Sujoy Ghosh (above) much. However, he says his family gets upset every time anything wrong is reported about him. So recently, when stories started doing rounds that actor Alia Bhatt (inset) has rejected his script, Sujoy says that his family asked him if there was a problem between Alia and him.
He adds, “It was just a friendly meeting with Alia. We didn’t discuss any script. Can’t I even meet people and chat? And how could I even offer her a script when I don’t have one ready right now. I am just working on it. So there is no question of her rejecting it.”
Asked if he has had a word with Alia regarding the rumour and he adds, “I guess we both are grown up enough to avoid giving importance to such rumours. But the problem is that such wrong news affects my family. My mother and wife thought that something must have gone wrong between me and Alia, and that’s why she didn’t want to work with me. And I had to explain everything to them.”
Sujoy says that he wants to put an end to all the rumours that he is working with either Alia or actor Jacqueline Fernandez. “My script will take some time to finish. So once that happens I will think about the cast. At the moment, it’s in the nascent stage. Hence, there is nothing much to talk about. Alia is a stupendous actor and I would love to work with her. But there is nothing on the cards currently. Also, there is no film with Jacqueline right now. She is a friend and working with her again would be a pleasure,” adds the filmmaker, who worked with Jacqueline in Aladin (2009).
