has rejected the opportunity to act in Vishal Bhardwaj's next film.
According to Mid Day
, the Omkara
filmmaker had wanted Johar to feature in a controversial, out-of-character role in Saat Khoon Maaf
"From what angle do I look like a wife-beater? And how could I enact a scene making love to Priyanka Chopra! And that too as a sex maniac! There is no way I could do this," said the actor-director.
Bhardwaj is said to have later finalised Slumdog Millionaire
star Irrfan Khan for the role.
Johar has appeared in front of the camera in projects such as Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
and Home Delivery
