Shahid refuses Chitthiyan of Vidhu Vinod Chopra

Mumbai: Actor Shahid Kapoor has turned down filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra`s movie `Chitthiyan`. The actor was approached by Chopra to play one of the male leads in `Chitthiyan`, which he refused.

"I am not doing `Chitthiyan`…there was some conversation regarding the film. But I am not doing it," Shahid told reporters at an event here.

For `Chitthiyan`, a love triangle, Chopra has already signed actor Sharman Joshi and is in search of another male star. Earlier, actor Ranbir Kapoor too had refused the film.

Shahid`s previous film `Mausam` was also a love story, that had failed to click at the box office. The actor has just completed Kunal Kohli`s tentatively titled `Teri Meri Kahaani`, a period love story opposite Priyanka Chopra. He has also signed another Yash Raj Film, to be directed by Maneesh Sharma of `Band Baaja Baarat` fame.
