Anushka Sharma’s spokesperson has refuted the reports claiming that the actor has been signed on to star opposite Salman Khan in filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next project.

“Anushka Sharma would love to collaborate with Sanjay Leela Bhansali but as of now, there is no truth to the speculations claiming Anushka has been signed for his next. We request you to kindly refrain from reporting on the same,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

It has been reported that Sanjay Leela Bhansali will once again collaborate with his ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ star Salman Khan for his next project. But neither Salman nor Sanjay have confirmed the news.

Earlier too there were reports that Shah Rukh Khan would star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next. But Shah Rukh denied the reports and said that the only project he has after ‘Zero’ is Rakesh Sharma’s biopic.

"Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a fantastic director and he always has lots of stories to tell. He loves both me and Salman. He comes and tells me all his stories, lekin yeh waali abhi tak bataya nahi hai usne (smiles). The only film that I have committed to doing right now is Mr Mahesh Mathai's Rakesh Sharma biopic (tentatively titled Salute)," SRK told The Telegraph.

Meanwhile, Anushka and Shah Rukh are busy with Zero promotions. The films also stars Katrina Kaif.

‘Zero’, directed by Aanand L Rai, hits the theatres on December 21.
