Recently, a leading newspaper carried an article which stated that Amit Sadh has been roped in to play the younger version of Rishi Kapoor in the much anticipated Sudhir Misra film, ‘Mehrunissa’.

The source further adds, ‘Amit doesn’t know where these rumors are coming from and wants to clear out that these are false.’
