A few weeks back, there were unconfirmed reports about Imran Khan doing a film with Dibakar Banerjee. The maverick film maker was riding high after the success of LOVE SEX AUR DHOKHA and it was obvious that the critical and commercial success of this film would make him reach out for the big league. Add to this the fact that his OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE and KHOSLA KA GHOSLA are hot favourites in satellite and home video arena meant that the film maker had truly arrived.
IMRAN KHAN and DIBAKAR BANERJEE
Post a soft drink commercial which saw Dibakar and Imran coming together, tongues started wagging again about the two collaborating for a full length feature film. Even though 'sources' had suggested that Imran had all but signed the film with Dibakar, there was no official confirmation from either of the two prime stakeholders.
However, when questioned, Imran has categorically denied signing any film. "These are just rumours floating around and nothing more", says Imran, "Dibakar and I just talked about doing a film but that's about it. I did the Coke commercial with him and we did have conversations about the prospects of a project in future. However, when two people meet, they do talk about possibilities of working together."
Adds Imran, "We spoke about certain story ideas but never really got down to nailing down anything in particular. There was nothing official about our talks. Honestly, one shouldn't be reading too much between the lines."
