It was earlier reported that Virat has replaced superstar Shah Rukh Khan in a romantic film, being made by Yash Raj Films (YRF) starring Anushka. However, the production house has no intentions to become the launch vehicle for the cricketer in filmdom.
"#YRFNews Virat Kohli will not star opposite Anushka Sharma in YRF's next," read a tweet from the official handle of the production banner.
The production house, under the guidance of late filmmaker Yash Chopra and now Aditya Chopra, has rolled out several popular films including hopelessly romantic "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge".
Anukshka, who has found strong foothold in Bollywood, was also launched by the banner in 2008 opposite Shah Rukh in film "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi".
