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).
