Fawad Khan and Sonam Kapoor, the much-loved couple from Khoobsurat, were set to reunite for Battle For Bittora, but Fawad says he won't be able to do the film due to date issues.


"The biggest hurdle was the timelines which couldn't coincide. Sonam was busy in her own projects.  Amidst all this, even I got involved with some work. Rest everything is all conjecture," Fawad told the media at the Vogue Beauty Awards 2015.

The "conjecture" Fawad was referring to was that certain media reports said he walked out of the film due to some intimate scenes with Sonam. Being a married man, it was reported that he had a 'no kissing' rule.

On whether Battle For Bittora creates any difference in his equation with the Kapoors, he said, "I never rejected the film. We still enjoy a good rapport, friendship and conversation."

"I have all the love and respect for Anil sahab and the whole Kapoor family. And I'd love to work with them whenever the opportunity comes next," he added.

Reports said Battle For Bittora will be helmed by Khoobsurat director Shashanka Ghosh. It is based on writer Anuja Chauhan's book of the same name.

The Kapoors -- Anil, Sonam and Rhea -- gave Fawad his big Bollywood with Khoobsurat.

Recent reports also suggested that Sonam's Bhaag Milkha Bhaag co-star Farhan Akhtar has now replaced Fawad.

Since, Fawad has not confirmed his 'no kissing' rule we are not sure whether or not he will be seen doing intimate scenes in the near future for the sake of his budding Bollywood career.
