Shahid Kapoor left fans confused when he had said he would be working with Imtiaz Ali for his next film which never happened. Imtiaz Ali has now said that the queries about the movie should be directed to Shahid and not to him as he never announced it in the first place.
Earlier, in December last year Shahid had expressed excitement about his new team up with his former film “Jab We Met” director for a new film.

The actor had said that he would team up with Imtiaz for the same after completing his upcoming film “Batti Gul Meter Chalu”.
Shahid later told reporters that the film is not happening any time soon and they are working on something else.
However, Imtiaz said “There will be more news like this because the fact is, I keep meeting actors and there is always going to be some speculation...”
“I never announced a film. I never said I am making a film. I never said I am working with Shahid Kapoor. So now when people ask me that the film is not happening, I reply, ‘Which film?’ I never said it. Jisne bola usko bolo (Talk to the person who spoke about it). There’s no truth to it,” the director said in an interview.
Imtiaz is currently writing four stories and has developed two screenplays for the same.
