"Sunny Leone is a wonderful human being. She is a very good friend. We are trying to work on her dates. She is busy with her other projects. There are some date issues and nothing more than that. I want to work with her and we are trying to incorporate an item number with her," Anil Sharma told IANS.
There were rumours that the film's main lead Sunny Deol has refused to work with the Indo-Canadian porn star as he wasn't too pleased when the jokes about him and the actress started doing the rounds.
Sharma clarified it saying: "All these are just rumours. Sunny Deol is one actor in Bollywood who is least interested in getting into controversies. He only wants each and every actor to grow. He was very upset after he got to know about the rumours."
Shooting for "Singh Sahib The Great" will start Dec 10 and Sharma said that it would be a "50 days schedule till January end".
"During the same time, I am planning to shoot for the item number as well," added the director who has roped in Ameesha Patel for the female lead.
