Filmmaker Vibhu Puri has denied he has roped in Varun Dhawan and Parineeti Chopra for his next film post ‘Hawaizaada’.

There have been rumours floating around about ‘Chenab Gandhi’ starring the two young actors, however, Puri has said that the reports were fabricated.

Talking to Bollywood Hungama, Puri said, “That was news to me. I have a script called Chenab Gandhi which I was supposed to direct for Mr Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The project didn’t happen. I’ve the script with me. But I haven’t approached any producer with it. Right now I am too consumed by the post-production and release of Hawaizaada to even think of any other film.”

Elaborating further on this, Puri also rejected rumours of meeting Parineeti and Varun, “I met Parineeti two years ago for Hawaizaada and never after that. As for Varun, I’ve never met him in my life. So I think the stories about Chenab Gandhi are fabrications.”
