Its been reported that Oscar nominated director Shekhar Kapur has replaced actor Hrithik Roshan with Ranbir Kapoor for his next ambitious project ‘Paani’.
But the director recently rubbished the reports and said that there was no way he would replace someone like Hrithik Roshan.
“Oops! Can't I meet an actor I like without setting off rounds of speculation? And would anyone be silly enough to give up Hrithik for a film?” wrote the actor on his Twitter page.
The speculations started after the veteran filmmaker met with Ranbir Kapoor recently.
“Press asking why I've been seen with Ranbir Kapoor. I really enjoy listening to him. Future of Indian Cinema safe in this breed of new stars,” the director tweeted.
The director, who has previously directed critical and commercially successful movies like ‘Masoom’, ‘Mr. India’, ‘Bandit Queen’, will be directing an Indian movie after a gap of 8 long years.
