It is a known fact that Arshad Warsi is all set to turn director next year when he would begin calling the shots for the film that has been titled AKKAD. Though he made the announcement earlier this year, there was no definite intimation around the leading lady in the film. However, the name which made rounds pretty fast was Priyanka Chopra. No wonder, Arshad is amused because as per him, there is no truth to the story.

"We haven't decided on who is going to act in the film because work is still happening on the screenplay", Arshad comes straight to the point; "I never said that Priyanka was going to act in AKKAD."

Detailing around what went behind the spread of rumour, Arshad says, "It was as simple as one journalist asking me about whom did I think would fit into the film. I said that it could be anybody who is a good actor. When further prodded, I said Priyanka because her range is brilliant. After all she has an ability to pull off a KAMINEY as well as DOSTANA."

What happened next truly left a bad taste in Arshad's mouth as the headlines screamed about Priyanka already finalized for the role. "All I had done was given an opinion but to my horror, I woke up to the news that Priyanka would be featuring in AKKAD. I was totally misquoted", says Arshad in an exasperated tone.

As things stand today, a decision is yet to be taken on the leading lady. "I have one or two people in my head but let everything materialize first. The girl has a very strong character to play in the film. However, as it happens during the writing process, it there is any change here or there, the protagonist would also change. It is good to pencil in someone only once everything is locked."

Meanwhile it would be some time before AKKAD comes on floors.

"I was busy shooting for GOLMAAL 3 earlier. Now I get busy with DHAMAAL 2. There is another film that I would be beginning work on as well. It would only be in mid-2011 that work will begin on AKKAD. I may be going for a co-production or collaboration", says Arshad whose debut production HUM TUM AUR GHOST had released early this year.
