But Sohail Khan dismissed the rumors and also said that his upcoming movie wasn’t titled ‘Radhe’ as the media reported.
“I am quite fed up of the rumors. First the media gives my film titles like ‘Sher Khan’, then ‘Radhe’, then ‘Mental’. Now they've even given me a leading lady. There are so many rumors about my film, I've given up!" said Sohail Khan to IANS.
“I have shortlisted a few leading ladies. I'll announce the (name of the) girl next week,” he added.
Other names that pop up in relationship to this movie are Daisy Shah, a professional dancer and Priyanka Chopra.
Though Sohail Khan Dint admit or deny that Priyanka Chopra was in contention, he admitted that Daisy Shah has been shortlisted.
“We are considering lots of actresses. There are some established names too. Daisy Shah too has been shortlisted from a very long list that we had. We're doing the final screen-test of all the short-listed actresses next week,” he concluded.
The movie to be directed by Sohail Khan, is a remake of Telugu movie ‘Stalin’, starring Southern superstar Chiranjeevi.
