Actor-director Arbaaz Khan has neither confirmed nor denied reports of Sonakshi Sinha being part of Dabangg 3.
There have been reports that Sonakshi will not be part of the third instalment of Dabangg, but Arbaaz says it's not completely true.
When asked about the same, Arbaaz told IANS: "There is nothing like that. The script is not ready. There will be changes in the film and there could be an introduction of some actors."
He said that it's "not completely true that Sonakshi is not going to be part of Dabangg 3."
"It all depends on the script. You got to move on and make something interesting for the audience," he added.
Arbaaz feels that people "jump to speculations and make it black and white."
"You have to be very careful of how you don't lose connect with the audience by not having Sonakshi and how you give something new to the audience," he added.
Sonakshi was launched in Bollywood with the blockbuster film Dabangg in 2010. The actress went on to be part of Dabangg 2, which was directed by Arbaaz.
Dabangg 3 will go on floors by end of 2017.
