Reports that Salman insisted on getting Shahid Kapoor out of Raj Kumar Santoshi's proposed Katrina-Shahid love story had the prolific filmmaker baffled.
"I really don't know when and where these stories come from. I've seen Saawariya and I loved Ranbir’s performance. Why just Ranbir, I also loved Sonam Kapoor's performance. I'd certainly like to work with both of them in the future. But as of now, there's nothing on the anvil. I'm currently in the pre-production of my Ashoka film with Ajay Devgan and Bipasha Basu. But the Katrina-Shahid film is not shelved. We’re on the look-out for another script."
Speaking on Salman, Santoshi says fondly, "I've been fond of Salman from the time we worked together in Andaz Apna Apna. I'd love to work with him again any time. He's a very co-operative, kind and generous actor. He has never interfered in my casting and he never will tell me whom to work with or not work with. Yes, I'm open to suggestions on casting."
