"It's not true. I am still working on my script. I think the media just jumps the gun before things happen. We have not approached anyone for the film. Hopefully by the end of this month we should finish the script, then we will search for suitable actors," Farah told PTI.
Alia will be next seen in Abhishek Chaubey's "Udta Punjab", "Kapoor and Sons" and director Gauri Shinde's next opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
Farah's women-centric drama film is likely to come next year though she did not divulged into details.
"I can't talk much about the film except that it is about girl power. We are highlighting several issues regarding women, sexual harassment being one of it," Farah said. "It is not a preachy, boring film. I myself have been watching such films," she said.
