New Delhi: Sara Ali Khan's reported Bollywood debut opposite actor Sushant Singh Rajput made headlines earlier this week but the MS Dhoni: The Untold Story actor told news agency PTI that they've not officially signed the film yet. The movie in question is titled Kedarnath and will be directed by Abhishek Kapoor, who also launched Sushant in 2013 film Kai Po Che!. Sushant told PTI: "We still have to sign the film so I can't say much about working with Sara." Sushant and Sara dined with Abhishek Kapoor over the weekend and soon reports of Sara working with Sushant rivaled the viralness of pictures from their meeting.

Sushant Singh Rajput played lead role opposite Ankita Lokhande in TV show Pavitra Rishta from 2009 to 2011. He quit the show when its TRPs were at its peak to prepare for his debut film Kai Po Che. Sushant said that was almost finalised for Fitoor opposite Katrina Kaif. "Fitoor almost happened. But I was waiting to work with Abhishek Kapoor after Kai Po Che! . One thing, apart from innocence I like in people is their passion. You might not have had an immediate success, but that doesn't matter to me. If you are passionate, I cannot say no as I am also like that," Sushant told PTI. The lead role in Fitoor was eventually played by Aditya Roy Kapoor.
Sushant Singh Rajput is awaiting the release of Raabta co-starring Kriti Sanon and Jim Sarbh. The Dinesh Vijan-directed film is produced by Homi Adajania. The film releases this Friday.
Sushant Singh Rajput has also signed up for Drive opposite Jacqueline Fernandez and Chanda Mama Door Ke with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and R Madhavan.
