MUMBAI: Actor Irrfan Khan says he has had no discussion with director Ritesh Batra or actress Kangana Ranaut about teaming up with them for a film, amid reports that the stars will be seen in the filmmaker's next project.

There have been reports suggesting the "Piku" star is collaborating again with his "Lunchbox" director on a film about a husband-wife duo, who gets affected by a major incident.

When asked about this, Irrfan told reporters, "I am not aware of this. Maybe someone suggested that this is possible and people talked about it, and it must've leaked from there and got published. We haven't had any discussion, nor any talks about it."

Irrfan and Kangana earlier worked in Anurag Basu's "Life In a Metro" although they didn't have any scenes together in the film.

The duo was set to work in "Divine Lovers", but later, Kangana pulled out of the project citing date issues.

Post this development, Irrfan, 49, had sarcastically remarked that the "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" actress had become too big to play his heroine and she would rather be a hero.

When asked about his comment, at the event, the actor said in a lighter vein, "Yes its's a possibility that she will be the hero and I'll be the heroine."
