Mumbai, May 29 (IANS) On screen they are playing siblings in 'Jashnn' and off screen Adhyayan Suman and Shahana are romancing. Some suggest it's all a publicity gimmick to support the film but Mahesh Bhatt scoffs at the idea.
'I find the idea that Vishesh Films started the rumours amusing. Because the move would be counter productive to our film. Adhyayan and Shahana play brother and sister in 'Jashnn'. And since it's not about incest how would the link-up help our film?' asked Bhatt.
'Jashnn' is Adhyayan's third film afer 'Haal-e-Dil' and 'Raaz - The Mystery Continues' The young actor finds it strange that rumours regarding Kangana and him floated during the release of 'Raaz 2' and now when 'Jashnn' is around the corner.
'These rumours seem to be centred on 'Jashnn'. Earlier I was linked with Anjana Sukhani and now Shahana. I don't know whose idea of good publicity for 'Jashnn' this is, but it's disgusting. Shahana is a pal. There's nothing more to to our friendship. I've a girlfriend. Kangana is very beautiful in her heart. I'm not the kind of guy who has affairs on the side,' Adhyayan told IANS.
So where do these rumours come from?
'Search me!' shrugged Adhyayan. 'I'd never blame the Bhatts. Mahesh Bhatt saab is like a father. He has taught me so much,' he said.
Adhyayan also admits that Shahana was banned by the co-directors Raksha Mistry and Hasnain Hyderabadwala from the sets of 'Jashnn' although she plays a pivotal part in the film.
'I protested on her behalf. You can't do this to her when she's the film's female lead. Bhatt saab had to intervene to allow Shahana to come on the sets as and when she liked,' said Adhyayan.
