Director Punit Malhotra, who was rumoured to be dating Sonam Kapoor, says he has never had a relationship with any actress.
Sonam was linked to the director of her film I Hate Luv Storys, but the two never confirmed the rumours.
"No, I did not date any actress. I am saying this on the record," Punit said.
"I did not have strained relations with anyone, any actor. I am friendly with Sonam. I hope to work with her in future," he added.
"It (link-up) is all rubbish. You get up in the morning, see the newspapers, read articles and you find it funny. You wonder what they were wondering while writing this story. There is nothing else that you can do about it."
