R. Balki on Friday rubbished rumours about him casting Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar in his next film. “Outrageous, completely fabricated. I’ve been busy with my wife Gauri Shinde’s film Dear Zindagi. Taking advantage of my unavailability, a section of the media has gone berserk. I had no clue that this is been going on behind my back. When I started getting messages and calls asking about my film with Amitji and Akshay, I was like…thanks for telling me about it,” he says reacting to the rumour that caught on the day before.
For the record, he has no idea how his next film will shape up. “After Dear Zindagi I will start thinking about what I will do next. At the moment, all I know is that it will be a movie with actors—not an animation film. And no, it won’t be about demonetisation or about a filmmaker’s husband nearly dying of nervousness as he waits for the release of his wife’s film,” he added in a lighter vein.
