Nandini denies remaking 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani'

Chennai, June 10 (IANS) Refuting rumours that her next directorial venture is a remake of Hindi blockbuster "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", Telugu director Nandini Reddy said she is currently scripting a romantic-comedy.

After critics panned Nandini's last Telugu film "Jabardasth", an unofficial remake of "Band Baaja Baaraat", she feels that the rumour about "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" remake is being pinned against her.

"I think it's because of 'Jabardasth' these rumours are doing the rounds. My next project is still in scripting stage and it's a rom-com (romantic-comedy). I'm not remaking "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" and neither do I intend to," Nandini told IANS.

"I don't know where these rumours come from. If there is a remake happening then we should wait for the official word, but not spread rumours without verifying facts," she added.

Known for highly successful directorial debut "Ala Modalaindi", which reaped gold at the box-office, Nandini said: "I should be ready to announce the project in a month's time. I'm yet to zero in on the cast, which I will do soon," she said.
