Mumbai: After a less than successful pairing in YRF`s `Jab Tak Hai Jaan`, Katrina Kaif and Shah Rukh Khan were rumoured to have come together for Rahul Dholakia`s `Raees`.

But recently the actress has come out in the open to declare that she was not approached for the movie.

"I don`t know where this news has come from. There is no such discussion like that till now. There are three films `Bang Bang`, `Phantom` and `Jagga Jassos` that I am doing right now. I am in talks for two more projects which I can`t reveal," Katrina told PTI.

With some pretty big films in her kitty, it seems it is going to be a while before we see the two superstars together again.

Even director Rahul Dholakia dismissed the report and said, "I don`t think so we have approached her. But we will surely finalise the leading lady in a couple of weeks."

There is more gossip about the actress that she has been offered Ashutosh Gowarikar`s upcoming period film. But the actress refused to reveal any details and left us guessing whether it was true or not.

"I feel for whatever films I am in discussion with a filmmaker it is not correct to talk about it unless one is doing it because if it doesn`t work out then it makes things awkward for the people and the project," she said.

Presently, Katrina is busy with `Bang Bang` opposite Hrithik Roshan and `Jagga Jasoos` with rumored boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
The actress has delivered two hit films with Ranbir earlier in `Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani` and `Rajneeti`.

"Both the films that Ranbir and I did were really liked by people and were successful. It is exciting for me to work with Ranbir again, he is a great actor. Director Anurag Basu is one of the finest directors that we have today and I am privileged to work with him," she said.

Besides, she has Kabir Khan`s `Phantom` with Saif Ali Khan, with whom she is pairing up for the first time.

As of now SRK and Farhan Khan are coming together for `Raees`, and it is also rumoured that Sonam Kapoor may star in it. Tentatively the movie will release on Eid, 2015.
