Mumbai: Producer Mukesh Bhatt dismissed reports that director Mohit Suri has walked out of Aashiqui 3 citing money issues and said that the work on the romantic-drama film is in process.
Earlier, there were rumours that Mohit, who has made films like Aashiqui 2, Woh Lamhe and Murder 2 for the Bhatts, was unhappy with his remuneration.
He had reportedly parted ways with them when they did not agree to pay what Mohit wanted for Aashiqui 3. When asked about it, Mr Bhatt told PTI: "Absolutely wrong. The reports are baseless. He is very much a part of Aashiqui 3. The work for the film is in process." (Also Read: Mohit Suri's Command Over Emotions is Unbelievable, Says Karan Johar)
