There has been much speculation around the upcoming sequel to Akshay Kumar's action-comedy flick, Singh is Kinng (2008). It was first reported that Ranveer Singh would be playing the lead, and the film would tentatively be called Sher Singh. Ranveer's participation in the film was a major conjecture, which was also fueled by the film's producer, who in a recent interview quite ambiguously hinted that the Padmavati actor is his first choice. However no official confirmation was made.

Now, Ranveer's spokesperson has denied the rumours of his doing the film. The whole prospect of him featuring in the sequel was not completely ruled out, but it was made clear that the sequel film is not a part of Ranveer's immediate projects.

"In lieu of the current spate of stories, we would like to highlight that Ranveer Singh is not in talks for any other film except the ones he is currently doing. His slate is as follows: Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, Rohit Shetty’s next and Kabir Khan’s 83. As always there will be a formal announcement made once he signs his next set of films," says the spokesperson.

After Padmavati, Ranveer is reportedly going to start working for Gully Boy. Following that, he will star in Rohit Shetty’s action film.

Kabir Khan’s 83, which will be his next project. revolves around India’s first cricket World Cup win in the year 1983. The actor will reportedly be seen playing the role of then captain Kapil Dev in the film.

Singh will be seen as the 13th century foreign invader and ruler of Delhi Sultanate, Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial Padmavati. The film stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead role and is slated to release on 1 December.
