Farhan Akhtar rubbishes report about his affair

Mumbai: Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar has rubbished a news report about his link-up with one of the assistant directors of his up-coming film `Don 2: The Chase Continues`, terming it as it "creative fiction".

"Woke up this morning to some really creative fiction.

Where do they get their inspiration for such imagination from I wondered…?," Farhan said on the micro-blogging site twitter.

He was reacting to a report published in a leading daily claiming that Farhan has grown quite fond of one of his assistant directors and has been spotted visiting her surburban home at all hours.

"It is very unfortunate that such a story was created and printed. This fictional creation can only be attributed to being a figment of the writer`s or his so-called source`s imagination, the 37-year-old actor said in a statement.

"I am surprised and upset by the complete disregard of the journalist`s sense of ethics and lack of sensitivity to the effect such kind of skewed writing can have on a person`s life. There has to be a line drawn between creative sensational journalism and personal attacks, it`s just not a news piece here," he said.

The assistant director in question has also worked on films like `Eat Pray Love`, `Slumdog Millionaire`.
