Mumbai, April 4 -- For some time now, rumour mills have been abuzz with news that director Sujoy Ghosh is in talks with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for his next, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan.
But sources claim that the actor had to turn down the offer because of date issues.
A source close to Nawazuddin says, "His schedule is packed with back-to-back films. Through April and May, he will be working on two projects with Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, respectively. In June, he starts shooting for another film. July has been reserved for film promotions, and the shoot of another movie with Shahid Kapoor."
However, we've now been told that the actor is trying hard to accommodate the dates for Sujoy's film in July and August. Nothing has been fixed as of now. "Nawazuddin is keen to work with Sujoy and Mr Bachchan. He is a big fan of the actor," adds the source.
