Punit Malhotra: 'I'm not dating Sonam'

By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, July 5 -- Punit Malhotra, the debutant director of Karan Johar's production I Hate Luv Storys, is not flustered by the constant rumours linking him with his leading lady Sonam Kapoor and the critics' response to the film. "We're not over-confident; it's just that we're trying to blind ourselves from the reaction," he says.

Malhotra adds, "Karan has not paid me. He's put all the money into the film," he jokes, pointing to his torn jeans.
