"I have never said that the film is a biopic. The media has been saying so. But Divya Bharti has been my all-time favourite actress," he added.
Currently he is busy casting for his film.
"I am just back in India after auditioning for the leading lady for my film. I have been to London, Italy and Greece to get the perfect actress for my film," he said.
Asked if he is searching for a look-alike of Divya Bharti, he said: "Yes, sort of. We want someone who looks like her."
Of the film's shooting schedule, he said: "I will finish the shooting in just five months. We are planning to shoot the entire film in India, London and Dubai."
