Punit Malhotra’s directorial debut ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ starred Sonam Kapoor and Imran Khan. It was rumored that Sonam and Punit didn’t hate love stories and were willing to make one of their own off screen. Although both Sonam and Punit have publicly denied that they are dating each other, the couple have been spotted in each other’s cosy company often enough. However, Sonam has reportedly opted out of Punit’s next directorial venture, which was to have featured her opposite her ‘Mausam’ co-star Shahid Kapoor. We have been told, daddy Anil Kapoor advised Sonam against mixing business with pleasure, which is why Punit is now looking for a new heroine for his film that now reportedly stars Imran Khan instead of Shahid.
