There were reports that Akshay had roped in the 29-year-old VJ-turned-actor for his comic caper, which will be co-produced by Ashwini Yarde under their banner Hari Om Productions.
    
However, the 'Vicky Donor' star has issued a statement to clarify reports.

"There is no truth whatsoever to the news doing the rounds that Akshay Kumar ropes in Ayushmann Khurrana for his next production venture," the statement read.

Ayushmann was last seen in 'Bewakoofiyaan', a love story set in the time of recession, which had garnered a lukewarm response at the box-office.
