Karishma Kotak in Salman-starrer? Sohail gives up on rumours

Mumbai, Feb 9 (IANS) Rumours are rife that model Karishma Kotak, lately seen in TV reality show "Bigg Boss 6", has wangled a prized lead opposite Salman Khan in his brother Sohail Khan's next production to go on the floors. But Sohail has denied the rumours.

"I am quite fed up of the rumours. First the media gives my film titles like 'Sher Khan', then 'Radhe', then 'Mental'. Now they've even given me a leading lady. There are so many rumours about my film, I've given up!" said Sohail.

He said the Karishma conection to his film is completely baseless, and added: "I have shortlisted a few leading ladies. I'll announce the (name of the) girl next week.

Karishma is a half-British, half-Indian a la popular actress Katrina Kaif.

"Perhaps people close to her feel the British-Indian mix of Katrina would work in Karishna Kotak's favour. We don't know what she thinks or where the story of being signed for Sohail's film opposite Salman came from. But the truth is, there's no truth to it," says a close friend of Salman's.

In fact at the moment, Sohail's home production is pushed ahead by a bit. Salman's dates in 2013 are being worked out for Sohail's film, Boney Kapoor's "No Entry Mein Entry" and Sajid Nadiadwala's "Kick". Leading ladies for all three are on the verge of being locked in.

But Kotak is said to be no where in consideration.

To go back a bit, Salman, who hosts "Bigg Boss", was seen to be a little extra kind towards the "soft-and-gentle" Karishma.

"That's it? That got rumours of her signing his next film going?"

Incidentally, Kingfisher model Angela Jonsson was the first choice for Sohail's film with Salman. She too is apparently not in the reckoning any more.
