Omung Kumar, director of the upcoming movie ‘Sarbjit’, rubbished rumours that had stated that an episode of Salman Khan’s campaign to free Sarabjit Singh has been deleted from his movie.

It was reported that Salman’s campaign in 2012 on Twitter to free Sarabjit from jail in Pakistan was part of the script of the movie and had been removed because Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was uncomfortable sharing screen space with Salman. “This is just not true. We don’t know who started it, or why. Salman’s campaign to free Sarbjit was never part of our script.

Ever! So where is the question of deleting an episode that was never in our film? We don’t know who started this nonsense,” Omung was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

 A common friend of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Salman Khan also commented on the issue, saying, “Neither Salman, nor Aishwarya wish to have anything to do with one another.
The last thing Salman would want is to have his name popping up in an Aishwarya-starrer. He doesn’t take kindly to his name being used without his consent.”
