Director Rajkumar Hirani, who is yet to begin working on Sanjay Dutt biopic, denied the rumors that a leading lady has been finalized.

Recently it was reported that actress Deepika Padukone would be playing one of the leading ladies in the movie, while Kangana Ranaut would be playing the second female lead. Kangana Ranaut too had recently denied her being approached for the movie.

"We have not finalized anyone. Only the script is complete apart from Ranbir on board. Only this much is finalized. Once Saala Khadoos releases on January 29, then I will work on it," Mr Hirani told reporters at an event.

Sanjay Dutt, who was imprisoned for five years for the possession of illegal arms, will be released in February.

The filmmaker hinted that the most eagerly anticipated movie 'Munna Bhai 3' might happen once Sanjay Dutt is out of jail.

"Not in touch with him (Sanjay Dutt) for long time, as I was busy with Saala Khadoos and its promotions. I have heard he will come out at the end of next month. Once he is out then we will take it ahead," said the director.
